Few vehicles scream excitement quite as loudly as a 2013 Mercedes-Benz roadster. The automaker has produced dazzling roadster options for years now, and with warm summer temperatures approaching, we’re sure there are plenty of drivers out there who wish they had a way to enjoy the wind in their hair. So here’s a quick and timely look at the roadster options Mercedes-Benz has available.

Currently, the SLK-Class and SL-Class offer several Roadster options. The 2013 SLK250 Roadster and 2013 SLK350 Roadster feature sport suspension, a direct-steer system, staggered-width wheels and tires, and adaptive braking technology. Both boast sporty exterior styling, powerful motors and a retractable hardtop that raises or lowers with the press of a button. Night security illumination and a SmartKey infrared remote and remote antitheft alarm system with a panic feature help keep these beautiful vehicles safe and secure. Both have two doors.

The 2013 SL550 Roadster has sport styling and a retractable hardtop of its own. Corner-illuminating front headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers keep visibility clear along with MAGIC VISION CONTROL®. Powerful, sleek and assertive, this roadster has a personality all its own while maintaining the excitement and capacity we’ve grown to expect from a convertible.

The SL-Class AMG® Roadster models are a whole new ball game, taking performance to a new level and injecting it with a healthy dose of luxury. The 2013 SL63 AMG® Roadster and 2013 SL65 AMG® Roadster offer two versions of a performance convertible, each boasting handcrafted biturbo engines, the AMG® high-performance compound braking system, wide lower mesh air intakes, and retractable hardtop.
