To celebrate a rather shocking win by a 300 SL in the Mille Miglia endurance race 60 years ago, Mercedes-Benz is tipping its cap with a very special edition of its SL Roadster.

Boasting upgraded performance as well as new styling touches and creature comforts, the SL Special Edition Mille Miglia 417 will be available as SL 400 and SL 500 models. The SL 400 is driven by a six-cylinder engine that turns out 333 horsepower, while the SL 500 is powered by a V8 that creates 455 hp. Both models come with an adaptive adjustable damping system and ESP Curve Dynamic Assist, which applies brief braking on the inside wheels to improve cornering at high speeds. The magnetite black metallic paint is standard, as are leather headrests and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Place your orders April 7.
