Mercedes-Benz grand roadster is a high-priced luxury sun machine
Roadsters are fun, nimble little two-seat cars with removable tops, perfect for a day in the sun. Except when they're not. The Mercedes-Benz SL, with two seats and a convertible top, is what you'd expect from a roadster in some ways, but less so when it comes to being small and nimble.
For lack of a better term, I consider the SL a grand roadster, a large, powerful two-seater appropriate for a comfortable cruise through wine country or to the yacht harbor, top down to enjoy a sunny day. Those who can pack light might even consider it for a weekend getaway.
But the SL sits in a far different class, and shows very different capabilities, than your typical.
