The 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 may look like a typical luxury sports car, ut under its aluminum and steel skin lies an electronically sophisticated heart that is as complex as any car going. It is a showcase for Mercedes' electronic brake system, ctive body control suspension and vehicle stability programs. The good thing about all the gadgetry is that it blends into the vehicle so seamlessly in daily driving that all you notice is uncommon competence in situations that might otherwise seem a bit dodgy.

This is the fifth-generation SL sports car, redesign that was overdue because the former car was getting pretty long in the tooth. Its styling is sleek yet muscular, ith a four-headlight face that is recognizably a Mercedes. Like a chameleon, t turns from hardtop to convertible in 16 seconds as the roof folds into the trunk. The SL 500 is powered by a 302-horsepower, .0-liter V-8 that has three valves and two spark plugs per cylinder. Performance is quick but not scorching: 60 miles per hour comes up in 6.1 seconds.

The innovative brake-by-wire system uses a computer to activate a valve at each wheel, nd the system senses how hard the driver wants to brake. If you brake in a turn, he system applies more braking to the wheel on the outside and less to the inside to help maintain vehicle stability. Brake Assist detects a panic stop and applies the brakes with full force. A traditional hydraulic master cylinder is available as a backup.

Mercedes uses an active suspension system that reduces body lean while providing a dynamic compromise between a soft ride and responsive handling. Called Active Body Control, he system has sport and comfort settings. ABC adjusts the ride instantaneously and keeps the car level when taking a turn.

Anti-lock brakes and traction control are also part of the ESP vehicle stability program that helps negate skids.

One expects a luxury performance sports car of this price to cosset its occupants with convenience and comfort, nd the SL does just that. Sensors in the seat-belt buckles let the climate control system know whether there is one or two occupants, nd it adjusts accordingly. Our test vehicle was equipped with optional heated seats that also cool with fans that circulate cool air through the perforated leather. These seats have multi-contour seatbacks, djustable side bolsters and a pulsing lumbar support to relieve the tension of long hours behind the wheel.

Interior storage consists of small compartments under each seat and small bins behind the seat. It would be nice if these bins were lockable.

Trunk space is compromised when the top is folded down, ut even then there is room for a couple of small duffel bags. Carrying substantial luggage means leaving the top up.

Safety items include head and thorax side-impact airbags, driver's knee airbag and a rollbar that pops into place should the vehicle turn over.

The completely automatic folding top is available with a large glass center panel, nd our test car was so equipped. A small net slides across the glass to cut out glare from the sunshine. Wind blast with the top down in minimal.

The tachometer and speedometer reside in large pods behind the steering wheel. Their graphics have been simplified, nd night lighting is now in blue. The Comand navigation and audio systems use an LCD. The new SL is a quantum leap over the old one. It is quick, uiet and loaded with advanced technology. Plus, t looks great.

The new SL 500 is a technological tour de force that is loaded with new items such as Sensotronic brakes, ctive Body Control, rake Assist and vehicle stability control. Styling is handsome, nd extensive use of aluminum keeps weight down.
