    The next couple of years will see an onslaught of new Mercedes-Benz models launched, with the recently revealed SLK-Class and C-Class Coupe, plus brand new versions of the A- and B-Class, and next-generation ML.

    One of the most exciting prospects for the next couple of years at Mercedes is the launch of a brand new SL-Class, which has been spied here once again in prototype form. Though its proportions seem similar to the current model, a closer inspection reveals a few subtle differences such as the shorter rear overhang and the taller bonnet.

    Set to go on sale in the second half of next year, as a 2013 model, the new car will adopt styling influences seen on the new SLK and SLS AMG and even the new CLS, which will share a similar tail-light design.

    A side-by-side comparison of the current SL and this latest prototype also reveal several clear differences. The new SL will sit lower and feature a wider stance than the current model. A glimpse of the interior also shows some retro design cues, though itís still much too early to speculate on such fine details--anything can change between now and the 2012 calendar launch date.

    Mercedes needs to fix the lines and make the $105,000 car look less like a Hasbro toy.
    SL isn't aging well in its current state.
