The SL-Class is a show-stopper in design and performance. Interior luxury is standard, with leather upholstery and wood trim, while the V8 engine can cover 0-60 mph in just over 5 seconds -- in the base SL550. The AMG-tuned cars have more horsepower and performance, but they all share an attention to detail and a power retractable hard top.
