The roadster features an electro-mechanical steering system, Active Body Control, and an aluminum-intensive body shell as well as a folding hard top, following in the footsteps of its predecessor.

There's a choice of two engines. The entry-level 3.5-liter V6 produces 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of torque whilst the more powerful SL500 has a twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8 with 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS) and 516 lb-ft (699 Nm) of torque.
