Or since its a ego question you could post in the correct section as them boys down there will know more then some random person in the newbie section..

also I believe sl94= 2009(year of release) 4th(fourth SL to release). Same theory for the rest of them.

Read the rest of the thread that's what we've been discussing. How did you not see the like 10 posts about that? Read before you post.

Clearly that doesn't work because the first one is an SL66, it's not the 6th SL released.

Guess it only works for a few of the years.

I am pretty sure the "r" in SL8R meant redesigned, which makes sense due to the large changes between it and other SL's and Ego's. Don't have a clue what CSL means but I do know mine is absolutely AWESOME.

All the rest are year followed by (well most believe) the month it was released.
SLS was named after the SLS, correct.

CSL was because we had the carbon tip and I also love the BMW M3 CSL.

Don't think so though.

No idea about the SL8R either
Correct. SL66 was the 6th version of the Ego in the '06 Model Year. Can't remember what they all were now.
SL74 was the same. It was the 4th Ego range within the 07 Model Year.

Then the sl66 is the 6th

Sl74
Xsv
Infamous
Dark
Sl74 is the 4th

I could also be totally wrong and just crazy. Could the sl66 be the sl66 AMG, and the Csl be a play off of the CLS?
Some of those lists are correct. I would have to dig out the exac reasoning behind the numbering, but that is pretty close. The 07 is more like: 07, Custom Ano 07, PL (Pevs, etc), SL74

The original SL66 design was based heavily on the lines of the original Merc CLS



But the name was crap so I called it the SL as the gun turned out very light (for its time!).

I believe Jack likes watching us squirm like this trying to figure it out.
Yes I do I make the name up every year with a different reason behind the name and never divulge why it called it that until a few months in.

In 09 we had originally planned to have 2 SL lines. The Ego and Geo. The Ego SL94 was called that because it was the 4th SL version of the Ego we had made. The Geo was called the SL91, because it was the first SL Geo we had made. Of course the SL91 never went into production.

So to the final question: What does SL8r stand for.

Well, I wanted to have something a little different from the 2 numbers at the end, and sticking with the Merc theme, the SLR was out and about, so I combined the SLR name with the 08 MY and came up with the SL8r.

It was NEVER meant to mean or be pronounced as Slater!!

Happy to Help

Jack

My assumption on the SL8r would be that it came out in 08' so like a super light 2K8r?

W00t for full disclosure.

However I find that name reason slightly disappointing. But at least now I don't have to wonder.
