Here is a peek at the minimum specs floating around, about the new 2009 Mercedes SL-Class. The current model has bit more to live before it gets updated to the new version. The expected facelift with breathe a new life (read added sales) into the car. The test drive took the new SL to the dusty roads of Southern Europe to the snow covered ones in Scandinavia. The most prominent change will be the CLS style headlamps that partner the new bumper and grille. The modded tail light design and LED enhancements are still kept under wraps but the air scarfs in the headrest are a lift off from the SLK series. Rumors suggest that a turbocharged version of the 350 engine with 354bhp may be added to the existing one. The top of the line SL65 AMG is with 612bhp.
