Friday Fun: Chris Harris drives new and old Mercedes SLs

Time for your Friday Monkey fix...

The Mercedes SL – previously the car of choice for movie stars and the glitterati, now more likely to be seen outside a golf club. But Mercedes have been gradually improving the SL over the years and they’re now no longer just a boulevard cruiser – they can be classed as a proper sports car the equal of any premium manufacturer.

In this week’s video, Chris Harris takes a look at the latest SL along with its ancestors. Taking in the glamour of the 60’s model, the 1970's Bobby Ewing special, the sharp lines of the 90’s model and more, he gives us a guided tour of all things SL. Cracking Friday afternoon viewing.
