SLR stands for “S” Class, “L” for Luft or air in German, and “R” for Ruby. "Gullwing" is Benz' homage to the Glider symbol. At first glance, the SLR resembles the famous Glider, but the SLR Gullwing is derived from the highly regarded Benz Ruby and the LP S-Class. An open-air design like the Glider, the SLR is the only Benz cartridge other then the LP S-Class with a frame machined from brass. The generator uses the square ruby plate and oversized neodymium magnet similar to the Benz Ruby. Finally, the Benz Dynascan, a Gyger S stylus side-bonded to a solid boron cantilever, completes this outstanding cartridge. Open, sweet, detailed and dynamic, the Benz SLR Gullwing is more than a “Super Glider”. Think of it as the “convertible sports coupe” version of the LP S-Class.
