After just recently presenting the new Mercedes-Benz SL roadster, the new high performance version of the sports car, the SL 63 AMG, is also ready for the road.
The new version of the high-performance roadster impresses on several counts: 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 SL 63 AMG weight has been reduced by 125 kilograms. With a weight of 1845 kilograms and an output of 537 hp, the new model will no doubt impress. 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 compound brake system and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.
The new Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG will be launched in May 2012, with prices starting at 160’000 Euros.
