a composite aluminum structure

The next generation of the Mercedes SL roadster will be launched in 2022, with an aluminum composite structure to optimize weight and rigidity.

The Mercedes SL new generation should be launched in 2022: to help us be patient, the star firm is revealing some initial information, starting with its aluminum composite architecture, developed by Mercedes-AMG.

Future Mercedes SL (2022): the development of a completely new model

For its future generation, Mercedes engineers started from scratch, just like for the first generation of the model which saw the light of day in 1952: no component was taken from the current SL or the AMG GT. Roadster. Indeed, the requirements were high: to offer a configuration 2+2 while offering a dynamic experience, comfort and safety at the highest level.

The future Mercedes SL will be made of composite materials of aluminum, steel, magnesium, as well as glass and carbon fibers, all of which combine increased rigidity with controlled weight. Mercedes indicates to this effect that the structure of its body will be 18% more rigid than the current generation, while the transverse rigidity is 50% higher than that of the AMG GT Roadster, not to mention the longitudinal rigidity, which is to it 40% higher. The weight of the pure body, without doors, hood or trunk, is about 270 kilograms.

Mercedes also specifies that the new SL was developed in record time: less than three years were necessary for this, thanks to digital development which allowed the production of series tools without requiring prototyping of the chassis.

The new Mercedes SL will be launched sometime in theyear 2022, and will be produced at the plant in Bremen, Germany, where the current generation is also produced.
