ONE OF TE FASTEST MERCEDES CARS

Those familiar with the nomenclature of Mercedes know that the SL in SL550 stands for ‘sport’ and ‘lightweight.’ Looking at this car we get the sport label but after learning it has a weight of around two tons, we’re not so sure about the whole lightweight title. The SL class has been around since the 1950s and matching a variety of 6, 8 and 12 cylinder engines with several generations of sporty two-door coupes and roadsters. The 2013 SL550 is powered by a 4.7L twin-turbocharged engine which gives it 429 hp. More importantly, helping to launch this car from a stop all the way to 60mph in under 4 seconds is the engine’s impressive 516 lb-ft of torque.
