Mercedes-Benz has revealed the Grand Edition SL400 and SL500 models which will be officially available come next month.

Not much of the car has been revealed in detail but like the brand’s Edition 1 models, it all just seems to be cosmetic upgrades to freshen up a car that’s been around for around seven years now.

The SL400 makes 367 hp with 500 Nm while the SL500 packs 455 hp with 700 Nm. 0 to 100 km/h in the latter only takes 4.3 seconds with the former being 0.6 seconds slower.

The new Grand Edition models features some notable differences and special colour combinations on the interior and exterior.

Colour wise, customers can choose between four metallic tones – standard black, brilliant white, various tones of grey and obsidian black. High-gloss chrome and matte silver ensures a special look for the front bumper.

The Grand Edition models sit on 19-inch AMG 10-spoke forged wheels at the front and a 20-inch pair at the back.

Inside, designo tundra brown pearl leather upholstery takes centre stage, extending even to the upper and lower section of the steering wheel.

Mercedes-Benz also revealed that the SL Grand Edition models will feature the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, the sports suspension lowered by 10 mm and firmer tuning and active multicontour seats with massage and dynamic handling function.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
