Lightbulb More photos and info on the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG [w/video]

Filed under: Convertible, Performance, Geneva Motor Show, Videos, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury



If you like lighter, faster, and more powerful then you have at least two things to like about the new Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG. It gets a 537-horsepower, 590-pound-foot version of the M571 twin-turbo V8 making the rounds in AMG vehicles, but that can be bumped to 564 hp and 664 lb-ft with the AMG Performance Package.

All of that thrust works on a car that is 125 kilograms lighter than the last generation, having lost 120 kg through the use of an aluminum bodyshell and another five kg with trunk formed of carbon fiber and plastic. The result is a zero to 100 kph run of 4.2 seconds with the extra juice, and onto 200 kph in 12.6 seconds.

Handling is sharpened with an evolution of the Active Body Control, three-state ESP a la the SLS AMG, as well as an optional AMG rear axle differential lock and AMG performance suspension.

Head past the jump for all the details on the matter and a video, and we've added a bunch more photos to our high-res gallery. We'll have even more to say about it when we see it at the Geneva Motor Show.Continue reading More photos and info on the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG [w/video]
