Eric Linder is the Assistant Product Manager for the Mercedes-Benz SL. Linder talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, www.drivingthenation.com, about the new Mercedes-Benz SL.

How is Mercedes going to meet the new Corporate Average Fuel Economy?

Eighty-nine percent of the new SL is constructed from aluminum. What does that mean for fuel economy?

Who are the competitors?

There is a V8 direct injection bi-turbo that Linder talks about, and the metallic matte black, that I just loved.
