2011 Mercedes-Benz SL 550 Night Edition review


The Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition, the designo Magno Night black paint to highlight the dramatic lines of the SL body. Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition is also identified two colors of its 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels with five spokes, silver front brake calipers with “Mercedes-Benz” script, dark headlights and taillights. 

 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition is equipped with 13.8-inch ventilated front and solid 12.6-inch rear discs. Matched to power and speed capability, SL63 AMG will be even larger 14.2-inch front vented rotors and 13.0 inch rear vented discs, while the SL65 AMG boasts vented discs that are another 1.2 inches in diameter.


The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL coupe/roadster line features the limited-edition Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition, which is painted in matte-finish designo Magno Night black with a black premium leather interior. Only 100 of this exclusive model are available in U.S. showrooms.

Specially developed for the Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition, the designo Magno Night black paint highlights the dramatic lines of the SL body. The Night Edition is also identified by the two-tone finish of its 19-inch AMG five-spoke light-alloy wheels, as well as silver front brake calipers with "Mercedes-Benz" script and darkened headlights and tail lights.


A striking contrast of dark black premium leather and bright chrome trim fills the interior, with the sports steering wheel, shift lever and roof lining trimmed in black. Newly-designed seats have eye-catching arrow-type stitching and contrasting silver accents, including the vents of the AIRSCARF® system, which bathes occupants' neck area with warm air in cooler weather when the convertible top is down.

All Mercedes-Benz SL roadsters are available with AIRSCARF, an innovative feature that can extend the open-air driving season into the cooler months. Another first from Mercedes-Benz, AIRSCARF is an extra heating system built into the driver and passenger seats.


The AIRSCARF neck-level heating system blows warm air from the head restraints of the driver and passenger seats, allowing occupants to cruise comfortably with the retractable hardtop open in cooler temperatures. Testing revealed that warming just a relatively small area around the neck dramatically improves comfort in cooler weather.

Standard on the SL65 AMG model (and optional on the SL550 and SL63 AMG), the AIRSCARF heating system even compensates for changes in air temperature and vehicle speed. AIRSCARF uses a heating element made of barium titanate, which heats up in a matter of seconds when electrical current is applied.


Standard COMAND system includes a color display screen 6.5-inch, hard drive-based GPS navigation, in-dash six-disc CD / DVD and four-gigabyte Music Register, which contains about 1000 track MP3. This year, the SL audio system adds HD Radio, navigation system and available SIRIUS traffic information in real time. music titles can be displayed on the COMAND screen in the center console and a small screen on the dashboard, and you can select with the buttons on the multifunction steering wheel. Interface media practice, it is easy to connect an iPod, USB memory, memory card and other devices.

Widely acclaimed as one of the world's safest convertibles, the SL provides sports car performance with all the built-in safety that's expected from Mercedes-Benz. Since an open car can leave its occupants vulnerable in a rollover, Mercedes engineers met the challenge in the SL with the world's first automatic roll bar. If sensors detect an impending rollover, the padded, leather-covered bar pops up, locking in place in a third of a second. It can also be raised or lowered by a console switch.

Shoulder belts are integrated directly into the seats for greater occupant protection, especially in rollovers. The Mercedes SL was also the first car with side airbags, which are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (a phrase first coined by Mercedes-Benz) that includes dual front airbags and emergency tensioning retractors that tighten the seat belts in a collision.

A contrast Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition of black leather and chrome trim, sport steering wheel meets the inner wheel, shift gear and roof lining trimmed in black. The newly designed seats are catching contrast stitching and silver accents, including sistem vent AIRSCARF®, which bathes the area of the neck in warm air from the cooler weather when the roof is low. The latest SL roadster configuration has a dramatic design and wings which contain sharp, angular headlamps and modified gill-type air vents behind the front wheels. 

A front hood with two power domes and a daring slit fin. Rear bumper diffuser is motorsports touch, and trapezoidal exhaust tips emphasizes its width. The current SL roadster V8 engine features SL550 Night Edition (382 hp, 391 lb-ft of torque), high performance V8 SL63 AMG (518 hp, 465 lb.-ft.) and V12 SL65 AMG (604 hp, 738 lb-ft).
