Mercedes-AMG SL 43 Unveiled In Malaysia For RM1 Million

New Mercedes-AMG SL 43, A Sportier and Luxurious Roadster Icon

Mercedes-Benz is proud to introduce the highly anticipated Mercedes-AMG SL 43, a revitalized version of their renowned roadster icon. With enhanced sportiness, increased luxury, and irresistible allure, the new Mercedes-AMG SL sets a new milestone in the model’s illustrious history.

Combining the original SL’s distinctive sporty character with the unparalleled luxury and technological excellence of modern Mercedes-AMG vehicles, this roadster represents the epitome of automotive excellence.

As the series’ entry-level model, the SL 43 showcases ground-breaking technology, making it a standout in its class. It boasts the world’s first production vehicle application of an electric exhaust gas turbocharger, derived directly from Formula 1™.

This innovative technology addresses the traditional trade-off between a small, highly responsive supercharger with limited peak power and a larger supercharger that provides greater peak power but with delayed response.

Key elements like the long wheelbase, short overhangs, extended bonnet, rear-set passenger compartment with a steeply raked windscreen, and a powerful rear end exemplify the classic SL proportions. The three-layer fabric soft top in black can be effortlessly opened or closed in just 15 seconds, even while driving at speeds of up to 60 km/h.

Step inside the Mercedes-AMG SL 43, and you’ll find an interior that harmoniously combines analog geometry with digital innovation, creating a concept known as “hyper-analogue.” The fully digital instrument cluster seamlessly integrates into a three-dimensional visor, providing a visually stunning experience.
