Mercedes-Benz Introduces Sports Package for SL350 and SL500

STUTTGART — Silver equals sporty in the new sports package for the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. The German automaker rolled out the new package on Wednesday with a price tag of $3,925.

Mercedes-Benz Sports Package for SL350 and SL500Mercedes-Benz Sports Package for SL350 and SL500The package is designed for SL350 and SL500 models with black leather cabin trim only. That provides the best palette to show off the silver-colored contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel, dashboard, center console and other parts of the cabin. Other interior treatments include a roof liner trimmed in black fabric, "new look" aluminum trim and perforated leather on the steering wheel.

The chief technical highlight of the new sports package is a 7G-Tronic Sport seven-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel shift paddles. Mercedes-Benz said the 7G-Tronic Sport is "capable of shortening gearshift times by as much as 30 percent." A new sports air cleaner helps to produce a "richer sporty sound in the SL350," the company said.

The sports package includes new 19-inch wheels with a new five-twin-spokes design, silver front brake calipers and dark-tinted taillights.
