One of the heroes of the Mercedes-Benz family has broken cover overseas in what appears to be snippets from the car’s brochure. The new Mercedes-Benz SL roadster has broken cover ahead of its reveal at the 2012 Detroit motor show in January. In keeping with the overall silhouette of the outgoing SL, the new model gets Benz’s wider grille implanted with a bold three-pointed star.

There’s also a prominent side vent in the front guards that kicks off two prominent crease lines flowing into the doors. With seating for two and an interior that borrows themes from the smaller SLK – the two share much in the way of basic design themes – the new Mercedes-Benz SL is expected to be offered with the usual array of V6 and V8 engines, including a potent twin-turbocharged AMG model. Also expect a V12 as the flagship of the $230,000-plus range.

The leaked brochure scans are slightly dated because official photographs are now out. New SL borrows some pointers from SLK but overall it looks better and I like the rear in this case.

Mercedes has also officially unveiled the New SL now. New Headlamps and tail lamps with integrated LEDs, Folding Metal Roof (Magnesium Frame), Magic Sky Control, Front Bass Audio System with Footwell Speakers are some of the major feature highlights. 3.5 Liter V6 which produces 302 BHP and 370NM Torque and 4.7 liter twin turbo V8 (For SL500) with 429BHP and 699NM Torque are the available engine options. This makes New SL able to accelerate from 0-100 Kmph in mere 4.6 seconds.

Nice car but it is nicer to take it on nice drive at night than on race track.
Hope you got what I mean [;)].
