The Mille Miglia 417’s name commemorates the unexpected victory of the 300 SL in the 1955 Mille Miglia, one of the world’s most challenging long-distance races.
Performance wise, the 417 sports a six cylinder 455 bhp engine, combine that with the adaptive adjustable damping system which comes as standard along with the unique Active Body Control ABC and the car delivers sporty lateral dynamics with top sporting performance.
The special edition comes as standard with a magnetite black metallic paint finish, red colour ways are featured on the front and rear carbon fibre spoiler to contrast with the matt carbon finish. The same red is used on the brake callipers which glint through the spokes of the AMG performance wheels.

The AMG lined seats and leather headrests sport an embossed carbon structure and an embroidered “SL Mille Miglia” label. Red edging also outlines the black door centre panels with red armrests.
