798 : When is A Merc S not an S (from Autocar India)

The S CLASS comes from the German word for special or Sonder. The name is given to Mercedes – Benz’s top of the line saloons. So whats an SL or SLK or SLR?

They are obviously not large top of the line saloons. SL actually stands for Sport and Light, Leicht in German, and  is used to denote Mercedes’ range of sports cars. In the case of SLK, K stands for Kurz or short and R in SLR stands for Rennsport or racing.
