Photo: The extraordinarily lightweight aluminum chassis in the 2013 SL-Class makes this latest generation of roadsters approximately 270 lbs lighter than the last, helping to both save fuel and enhance performance.
Photo: The SL-Class delivers power with prowess. New rapid-multispark ignition in the SL roadster’s 4.6-liter V-8 can fire up to four times per millisecond, while high-pressure Direct Injection can microscopically fine-tune fuel spray in just 0.1 milliseconds. The result is reduced emissions, fuel consumption and noise.   European model shown.
Photo: Combining a V-6 gasoline engine with an electric motor, our sophisticated S400 HYBRID was the first production sedan to use a lithium-ion battery as part of its powertrain. Boasting ultra-low emissions, outstanding fuel economy thanks to an automatic engine start-stop system, and advanced technology that recaptures energy during braking, everyone gets to breathe a little easier.

Photo: What do we mean by “clean diesel?” The 3.0-liter BlueTEC clean diesel V-6 reduces smog-causing NOx, converting much of these emissions into harmless nitrogen and water vapor. All the while, this BlueTEC engine delivers a massive 455 lb-ft of torque, a cruising range of over 600 miles, acceleration as quick as its gasoline counterpart, and better highway mileage than many 4-cylinders and hybrids.
