After being on the market for 6 years, the current generation R230 SL-Class is set for its midlife major facelift. Here now are photos showing the next SL without any disguise, just a few pieces of black tape were removed from the car by computer. Besides a revamped interior design, the most dramatic change will be the CLS-Class style headlamps together with a new front bumper fascia in addition to a new front grille with a single bar moulding/emblem. On the rear, new LED tailamps and a restyled rear bumper fascia. Engines are likely to remain the same, but rumours are talking about a turbocharged version of the 350 engine with 354 bhp. Top of the SL range will be the well known biturbo V12 SL 65 AMG with 612 bhp. The 2009 SL-Class with its debut expected for this March at the Geneva Motor Show will have its market launch towards the end of 2008. The next generation SL-Class is expected to hit in 2012.

I love the way the current SL looks, but this...this is just ugly. I'd much rather pick up a used '07 after this comes out.

Oh yeah, the exhaust note on the AMG is nice.

Yeah, nooooo....

The current SL's are awesome.... no need to face-lift it to that at all.

Fucking Trueslide... I don't know why I even bother checking out threads like this. You honestly reveal everycar and its almost identical to what comes out.. for example the current CTS.
