Mercedes SL 500 is an automotive icon that can look back on more than 60 years of history, but the convertible roadster still has to keep up with the times. That's why Mercedes has overhauled it and come out with a new model. The SL 500's V8 engine, with a capacity of 4663 cubic centimeters, powers up to a solid 320 kW. That's a 12 percent increase over its predecessor, even though its capacity has fallen by nearly a liter. At the same time, though, its torque has risen from 530 Newton meters to 700. The base model SL 500 sells for around 117,000 euros in Germany. For more go to http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15846404,00.html

Vintage: 1957 Lotus Elite | Drive it!
Christoph Bauer on the hunt for the classics of automotive history. Looking
around Wolfburg's Zeithaus Musem, Christoph Bauer discovers one of the more
innovative sports cars of the 1950s: the Lotus Elite. Just over a thousand
of this model were built between 1957 and 1963. Founder of Lotus Colin
Chapman ventured into new technical territory with this model. The body and
the chassis were constructed completely from fiberglass parts, which were
then fused together. The Elite also featured a purist interior design,
paired with low-slung seating and a snappy gear shift. For more go to
VW up! in a new 4-door | Drive it!
The Volkswagen Up! is a sporty option for taking on city roads and now it's
available in a 4-door version. Drive it! takes it for a test run. Does the
4-door model offer enough room for four adult passengers? The 4-door model
is still the same length, but the front doors are now 20 centimeters
smaller. And the car now weighs an extra 17 kilograms. There's room for a
small folding bike in the trunk, and two passengers can sit comfortably in
the rear seats for short rides. The additional doors add 475 euros to the
price tag - an investment that's well worth the cost. For more go to

Aerodynamics: new standards
The design of the new SL not only meets high aesthetic demands -- it also
boasts exemplary aerodynamic qualities.
As such, the roadster merits best marks in its segment in four important
With the lowest drag coefficient (cd = 0.27 in the SL 350);
With the lowest wind noise that is virtually on a par with a closed saloon;
With the best comfort for open-top motoring so that you can still have the
roof down even at high speed;
With virtually no accumulation of dirt on the side windows.
Two world premieres: Frontbass and MAGIC VISION CONTROL
With two innovations, the new SL remains true to its tradition as a
MAGIC VISION CONTROL is a new, intelligent and highly efficient wipe/wash
system. The innovative wiper blade concept always applies the washer fluid
just in front of the wiper blade lip via the channels integrated into the
blade -- in both directions of wipe. As a result, no water is splashed onto
the windscreen during spraying to disrupt the driver's visibility, while at
the same time cleaning the windscreen perfectly. The water also remains on
the windscreen, thus ensuring it is cleaned without troubling the
occupants, even with the roof down. For the first time an optional fully
heated wiper blade which prevents snow or ice from forming on the blade in
winter is available. This heating function also allows warm water to be
applied directly onto the windscreen for the first time, even in cold
Also unique, the Frontbass system intelligently uses the free spaces in the
aluminium structures in front of the footwell as resonance spaces for the
bass loudspeakers. As a result the new SL features clear, crisp bass sounds
that facilitate a concert hall ambience even with the top down, and frees
up space in the doors.
Both innovations are part of the extensive standard equipment of the new
HANDS-FREE ACCESS: 'kick' to open
The HANDS-FREE ACCESS system is another Mercedes-Benz innovation which
provides hands-free, contactless operation of the boot lid. The driver
simply moves their foot in the vicinity of the rear bumper. Mercedes-Benz
is the only car maker to offer a system which not only automatically opens
the boot lid but closes it as well.
The safest roadster
Thanks to the crash-optimised aluminium structure, standard-fit PRE-SAFE®
and assistance systems on the same high level as the S-Class, the SL is the
world's safest roadster. The rigid aluminium bodyshell forms a sturdy
passenger compartment along with precisely defined deformation zones in the
front and tail ends. In the event of the vehicle overturning, A-pillars
made out of a mix of steel and aluminium and two roll-over bars protect the
passenger compartment. The restraint systems including the two-stage driver
and passenger airbags have been further developed. A headbag integrally
covers the side head-impact area. An additional thorax airbag in the seat
backrest can protect the upper body in the event of a side impact. Another
new feature is the crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints developed by
Mercedes-Benz which are fitted as standard in the SL.
An active bonnet and a front end with a large, yielding impact area help
ensure pedestrian protection.
A safety highlight comes in the form of the standard-specification
anticipatory occupant protection system PRE-SAFE®, developed by
Mercedes-Benz and the only one of its kind in the world. If it recognises
that there is an acute risk of an accident, it reacts reflexively by
activating preventive measures to protect the occupants, so that the belts
and airbags can exercise their protective effect optimally in the event of
a subsequent impact which might ensue. Additional post-crash measures
supplement the integral safety concept and facilitate rapid assistance:
regardless of the severity of the impact, the doors can be automatically
unlocked after an accident, the interior lighting activated and the side
windows lowered by 50 millimetres to ventilate the interior more
effectively. The steering wheel can also be moved upwards.

Voor het eerst in de geschiedenis heeft Mercedes-Benz de nieuwe SL bijna
helemaal uit aluminium opgetrokken. Dat zou moeten resulteren in een
beduidend lichtvoetiger weggedrag. Roland neemt de proef op de som in en om
