The SL Special Edition Mille Miglia 417 is a special edition of the Mercedes SL Roadster, and is being released to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 300 SL's unexpected victory in the Mille Miglia endurance race. This car features an array of performance upgrades and comfort features.
The number tag on the car's name is derived from the time that the 300 SL started the 1955 rice -- at 4:17 am.
The Special Edition Mille Miglia 417 is being made available in SL 400 and SL 500 models. The former is powered by a six-cylinder engine producing 333 horsepower, while the latter boasts an eight-cylinder engine that pumps out 455 horsepower.
Both vehicles are equipped with ESP Curve Dynamic Assist, which applies subtle braking on the inside wheels to improve high-speed cornering. This particular feature is especially suited towards high-speed driving.
