Mercedes Roadster SLAEleven years after the presentation of the Vision SLA concept, Mercedes roadster would provide to launch the entry-level SLA to 2013.

The oldest will remember the Vision SLA concept (pictured) presented by Mercedes in January 2000 in Detroit. At the time, the concept car had a 1.9 liter 4-cylinder gasoline to 125 hp. Eleven years later, the project back on the front of the stage. Mercedes plans to take to launch the SLA in 2013 or, at the worst, 2014. The objective of this future entry-level roadster is to compete with the Audi TT or Mazda MX-5.

The model should take the platform MFA (Mercedes FrontWheel Architecture) used by Classes A and B. We should find the style of the Mercedes SLK with, also a soft top and a transmission to the front wheels. For the engine, it is called a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder petrol turbo, mated to a 6-speed manual or dual-clutch 7-speed.

We will see in the coming months if the noise corridors are true or not. Mercedes is expected soon to communicate on the subject.
