October 28, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Earlier this month, a batch of spy shots of a new-generation Mercedes-Benz SL prototype was leaked online. The car was given a test drive on the roads of Germany. Now a video from the tests of the same test car has appeared: the video allows us to hear the sound of the engine.

Published video from test drives of the next generation Mercedes-Benz SL prototype. This video is interesting in that it gives us a subtle hint of a possible power plant for the future novelty.

When the car accelerates, we hear the roar of the engine, which reminds us of the sound of a six-cylinder engine. It’s rather raucous, but don’t forget that the guys from the AMG division are also working on the car. This means that we can expect a lot of improvements in terms of performance. Foreign auto experts even predict a sports exhaust system for the novelty.

It is also reported that the top model SL 73e AMG 4Matic promises to be a real “rocket”. She will get an electrified power plant, which will include an electric motor and a four-liter V8 engine. This tandem is clearly not working on the prototype with the video.

In general, the new Mercedes SL is still reliably protected from casual observers by dense camouflage. We know from the automaker itself that the original 300 SL will have a strong influence on the proportions of the new product. Roadster will get a fabric roof. There is no specific information about the launch date of the new item.

Motor1.com experts do not expect the next Mercedes SL to debut until 2021. The sales of new items are likely to begin at the end of next year.

Meanwhile, during the tests, they managed to photograph a prototype of the powerful crossover Hyundai Kona N 2021. The test drive was staged at the famous Nürburgring race track. The Koreans promise to present the novelty early next year.
