The AMG tuned new 2013 Mercedes Benz SL63 AMG has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. At first glance, the new SL63 AMG isn’t a car with looks that you’d kill for but is definitely a car with performance to die for. New improvements include 30 percent greater fuel efficiency over its predecessor, boosted output and an almost 125kg lighter curb weight thanks to generously distributed aluminum throughout the body.
With a kerb weight of 1845 kilograms and an output of 537 hp or 564 hp, the SL63 AMG model boasts the perfect ingredients for unparalleled dynamism and a sublime driving experience that is truly unique. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers 537 hp and the addition of a performance package brings the figure up to 564 hp. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, although this increases to 300 km/h with the AMG Performance package on board. Fuel efficiency is at 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres.
Both models are mated to AMG’s seven-speed Speedshift automatic gearbox to the rear wheels and hits the 0-100km/h mark in 4.3sec (4.2sec with the Performance Package added). There is also a newly-developed AMG high-performance compound brake system with six-piston calipers in the front and single-piston floating calipers in the rear hidden beneath the 19-inch stock aluminum wheels.
Ola Källenius, CEO at Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “The new SL 63 AMG is yet another masterpiece from Mercedes-AMG. Be it driving dynamics, lightweight construction or efficiency – the SL 63 AMG represents a giant leap forward. Following on from the SLS AMG Roadster and the SLK 55 AMG, it now makes our unrivalled roadster family practically complete.”
