Outstanding performance, impressive driving characteristics and the expressive, stylishly honed design are the hallmarks of the new Mercedes-AMG SL 63 and SL 65.
The AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission on the SL 63 boasts tailor-made dynamics and high variability.
Both roadsters offer more power and torque than their respective competitors in this segment.
The five different driving programs that come included in the AMG Dynamic Select – “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport Plus”, “Individual” and “RACE” provide the driver with broad scope for influencing the characteristics of the SL 63 and SL 65.
For more than 60 years, the Mercedes-Benz model range with the “SL” acronym has enthralled sports car fans around the world. Now, Mercedes-AMG is further enhancing its SL 63 and SL 65 high-performance roadsters with updated technology and expressive design, underscoring its determination to make the most of everything, every moment, every meter. The front section features a completely new design, with a radiator grille that broadens out towards the bottom and the A-wing front spoiler. The stylish light signature and the highly comprehensive scope of standard equipment and appointments underscore the high-quality impression. The engines set the benchmark in the high-performance roadster segment with a 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine on bard the SL 63 and a 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine in the SL 65.
“Mercedes-Benz AMG range” Mercedes-AMG range, the SL 63 and SL 65 are a driver’s dream, combining exceptional agility with breath-taking acceleration. Both cars score with fascinating expression and convincing performance, and deliver exactly what our clientele are looking for to express their exclusive lifestyle,” said Lennart Mueller-Teut, Head of Marketing & Communications, Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East.
Outstanding performance, impressive driving characteristics and the expressive, stylishly honed design are the hallmarks of the new Mercedes-AMG SL 63 and SL 65. The technical highlights include the sports suspension based on Active Body Control, the rear-axle differential lock which now features as standard, the even more responsive AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission (SL 63) and the five AMG Dynamic Select driving programs. Both roadsters offer more power and torque than their respective competitors in this segment.
Performance is also boosted by the sports suspension based on Active Body Control, the high-performance composite brake system and the redeveloped AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission (SL 63) or AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-TRONIC (SL 65).
The intelligent lightweight design is a major contributory factor to the exceptional driving dynamics. On the SL models the light all-aluminum bodyshell provides the basis for high rigidity, safety and comfort combined with the lowest possible weight. The designers have used the even lighter material magnesium for the panel behind the tank. The boot lid contributes to a further reduction in weight. The interior support consists of a light carbon-fiber composite material. The extremely rigid carbon-fiber component benefits from AMG’s motorsport expertise and is bonded to the equally very light plastic outer shell. This results in weight savings of five kilograms in comparison to a conventional boot lid.
The steering knuckles and spring links of the 4-link front axle and almost all the wheel control parts of the multi-link rear suspension are also produced in weight-optimized aluminum. The reduction in unsprung masses benefits not only agility, but also the response of the spring-damper elements. — SG
