The Mercedes SL is eight years old. The grand tourer from Stuttgart was introduced in 1954 and the sixth-generation R231 model isn’t long for this world. Mercedes-Benz is about to replace the model with a full revamp, even though the model isn’t really doing well in terms of sales for the German marque.

Of course, renderings of the two-seat grand tourer is in order, and Future Cars Now on Instagram would be the first to start the machine.
The rendering, which you could see on top of this page, takes a lot of cues from the spied prototype, which include the soft top that apparently the SL is reverting to. Rumors…
