Default What is the difference between a Mercedes SL 380 and an SL 450?

I've seen pictures of each, and I was wondering what, if any, the differences were between the two. I know the 450 was made in the 70's, and the 380 in the 80's, but other than that...?

Serious answers only please.
Thank you!

Well.

Why dont you just google the cars specifications and compare?
The cars do not look so different as they are all R 107.

Here are some links where you can read and then google more.

The engine is the main difference. They're both V8, gas-powered engines but the 450SL used the M117 engine series, displacing 4.5L while the smaller M116 3.8L was used in the 380SL.

I agreed what is said above!!!
They are usually the same style "SL" just the improvement in the style from season to season. Benz wide range 280, 380, 450 usually represent the engine in liters. So, only one difference between Mercedes SL 380 and an SL 450, is the engine.
