The new engine is Euro 6-compliant as it returns a fuel economy of 32,2 mpg US or 7,3 liters/100 km with CO2 emissions of 172 g/km.

The German roadster uses a seven-speed automatic transmission in order to achieve these performance figures. In Germany, pricing starts from €97,282 including VAT. Expect more high-res photos from the carmaker soon.

“In contrast to its predecessor, the SL 400 is not fitted with a naturally aspirated engine. Instead it boasts a six-cylinder unit with two turbochargers,” claims the company.
