The new types 300 SL, 300 SL-24 and 500 SL showed no common features with their preceding models except for their overall concept. Just like 18 years before, when the 350 SL demonstrated a great number of innovative construction details in automotive progress, the 129 series SL now also was a completely new car.

In June 1993 the new model designation system, introduced with the presentation of the C-Class, was also applied to the SL models. The traditional 'SL' now came before a three-digit figure which represented cubic capacity; thus the 500 SL became the SL 500. Later that year AMG launched a tuned version of the SL 500. Displacement was increased from 5 to 6 litre resulting in a decent 381 bhp. As with most AMG models the SL 60 AMG was only available on order and never appeared on the pricelist.
