2007 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Sports Package

The 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class roadster has finally received its own exclusive individualization kit.

Although the new package doesn’t bring anything new in the powerplant department, it still allows you to make the comfortable sports coupe look more like one of those aggressive, mind-numbing AMG-tuned street rockets that cost twice as more and, let’s face it, can be used as daily drivers only by Formula One pilots.

Clearly inspired by products created by their own AMG tuning facility, the Sports Package provides the car with an even more energetic look at an affordable price.

According to the manufacturer, after ordering the package, you will get a new interior upholstery kit with silver-colored high-contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel, dashboard, center console, as well as the armrest and door linings. Of course, there is also a set of matching aluminum details.

On the exterior side, you will receive larger performance brakes, AMG-looking 19-inch light-alloy wheels and a seven-speed gearbox, which is 30 percent faster than the standard box.

The wheels come fitted with 255/35 ZR19 Y tires at the front and 285/30 ZR19 Y tires at the rear, hiding inside a set of perforated brake discs at the rear wheels and silver-painted front brake calipers with the “Mercedes-Benz” lettering.

The new 7G-TRONIC Sport seven-speed automatic gearbox, which is blazing fast shifting gears in automatic mode.

The gearbox also has a manual shift program letting you shift gears with the help of those steering-wheel shift paddles that no sports car manufacturer with an appropriate respect for oneself can live without. The transmission is available for both SL 350 and SL 500 models.

The whole package is priced at only €2,975, which is an absolutely fantastic price of converting your precious SL-Class into a real killer when compared to the new Maserati GranTurismo, the roaring Audi R8, Ferrari F430 or the gorgeous Aston Martin V8 Vantage supercar.
