Drop-top to get more substantial changes for final five years
21 February 2007

It looks like Mercedes is going to give its big-selling SL a makeover before the all-new car arrives in 2013.

The SL already had a slight lift in 2006, but these new changes are likely to be more substantial.

Under the black disguise this car has a new front bumper, revised air intakes and new headlights similar to those on the CLS. The rear lights and bumper are also likely to change.

Most of the SL's engine line-up will stay the same, but expect the SL55 AMG's 5.4-litre supercharged V8 to be replaced with the new 6.2-litre V8, creating a new SL63 AMG.

The V12-engined SL65 AMG will remain as the range-topper.
