Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers has confirmed a next-generation SL is in the works, and it'll be more focused on dynamics than the big, heavy current model.
The boss confirmed the "historic DNA of the SL" will be a focus during development in an interview with Autocar.
"It will have a perfect compromise between driving dynamics and comfort because it’s still kind of a cruiser too.”
Under the skin is expected to sit a variation of the platform being prepared for the second-generation AMG GT, dubbed Modular Sports Architecture (MSA).
By putting the two models on a shared architecture, Mercedes-Benz will increase the economies of scale and profitability of the two cars.
"Handing over SL to AMG as the performance and sports car brand is great," Moers said. "There’s lots of responsibility behind that, and I’m really honoured.”
