You can order now and they are released on August 1st. Figures you quote are correct, it's in Merc Enthusiast.

That is cheap.

My 1994 SL320 has 228BHP from a straight 6 and cost £63,000 new, so 15 years inflation has been engineered out of the price. I can't help but wonder about the build quality compared with mine.

BrianBrian W129 300/ 24 1992 (bog standard apart from deisel engine conversion) and over the moon with it, yes it would be interesting to see how good the new one is.

Thank you for finding that,,the range is not mentioned in the Swedish link either,,4 wheel drive as well

My Swedish is negligible, but doesn't the last sentence suggest a range of 150 -180 km, with a full charge taking eight hours?

Hardly a very practical proposition - charge it all night for a couple of hours driving the next day. Keep trying Mercedes.....

You are right also 8 hour for a full charge,, so it will go 100 miles roughly cant see that working some how

My SL had its first MOT at 7000 miles which works out at about 6.4 miles per day. That first owner must have used it as a toy, maybe one trip a week.

Some buyers will be quite happy with a range of 100 miles.

I could drive from home to Shelsley Walsh, take four enthusiastic runs up the hill and get home again on one charge. All I need now is the cash:Oops:
