We predict that the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL-Klasse will have completely new engine with two variants: a 3.5-liter V6 and a 4.6-lter twin-turbo V8. There is also speculation of a hybrid version of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL-Klasse, but the AMG 63 is expected to get the impressive twin-turbocharged of a 5.5-liter V8 with upwards of 571 horsepower on tap.

2012 Mercedes-Benz SL-Klasse will be ready for sale in a couple of years.
