A New Mercedes SL-Class Guarantees Pub Debating Glory

Buying a new Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is the best way to guarantee victory in virtually every motoring related pub debate

Buying a new Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is the best way to guarantee victory in virtually every motoring related pub debate. This is for one simple reason. Whichever vehicle your sparring partner favours, the SL-Class is probably faster, more expensive, and far more stylish. So, let's consider in detail why the SL-Class is top trumps champion.

This prestigious coupé/roadster is strikingly attractive so has more 'kerb appeal' than a mansion filled with super models. The entry-level variant is the 3.0-litre 231bhp SL 300, but competitive debaters keen to get the upper hand will prefer the more powerful models. These include the SL 600 5.5-litre 517bhp V12, but the ultimate 'argument settler' is the SL 65 AMG Black Series. This 660bhp coupé rockets to 62mph in 3.8 seconds and is capable of an electronically limited 199mph.

Now, Mercedes would never cram this monstrous power into a car that handles like a blancmange on stilts. The SL-Class therefore feels totally secure, not to mention supremely comfortable, as it propels its argumentative occupants from A to B. However, its sheer bulk makes the SL-Class feel more grand tourer than sports car, but the thrilling sensation behind the wheel never disappoints. Couple this with excellent build quality and a sky high image, and this desirable Mercedes becomes a tantalising purchase.

Motoring.co.uk's new car database reveals a new Mercedes SL-Class could be your ticket to pub debating glory for £61,600 - £156,505. Finance packages include a personal contract purchase plan for thirty-six payments of £719 at 3.9% APR, plus the £7,499 deposit. The optional final purchase payment at the end of the contract is £25,800.
