Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG

Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG, the new version of the high-performance roadster impresses on several counts: systematic lightweight construction, a boost in output and driving dynamics, and 30-percent lower fuel consumption and emissions.

Thanks to an all-aluminium bodyshell, similar to that of the SLS AMG super sports car, the vehicle weight has been reduced by 125 kilograms. With a kerb weight of 1845 kilograms and an output of 395 kW (537 hp) or 415 kW (564 hp), the new model has the perfect recipe for unparalleled dynamism and a superior driving experience.

A further boost in performance comes courtesy of a winning combination: enhanced AMG sports suspension based on Active Body Control (ABC), new AMG speed-sensitive sports steering, the AMG high-performance composite braking system and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.

The expressive front section is dominated by the new "twin blade" radiator grille and the front apron's lower cross strut in silver chrome. An enticing mix of stylish design, extensive standard equipment and a high safety level.

Supreme performance and high efficiency: the SL 63 AMG is available with a choice of two power ratings for the first time. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers 395 kW (537 hp) and 800 Nm of torque. If the AMG Performance package is specified, drivers will have 415 kW (564 hp) and 900 Nm at their disposal – more power than any other competitor in this segment.  The result is phenomenal performance, as underlined by the acceleration times from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 or 4.2 seconds respectively.

A speed of 200 km/h is reached in 12.9 or 12.6 seconds respectively. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, although this increases to 300 km/h (likewise electronically limited) with the AMG Performance package on board. NEDC combined consumption comes in at 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres for both power ratings – a full 4.2 litres or 30 percent less than for the outgoing model.

The eight-cylinder powerplant with the abbreviation M 157 features a combination of innovative high-tech components – for high power output – and delivers exemplary, low fuel consumption. In addition to spray-guided direct petrol injection, the engine boasts an all-aluminium crankcase, twin turbochargers, four valves per cylinder with camshaft adjustment, air/water intercooling, alternator management and an ECO start/stop function. The weight-optimised AMG sports exhaust system with two chromed twin tailpipes produces a distinctive engine sound.
