The German people from Mercedes-Benz unveiled today the new SL 65 AMG, a model which goes on sale this fall at a starting price of €236,334.
With the world premiere set for the New York Auto Show which opens its gates in April, the new Mercedes SL 65 AMG is motivated by a powerful 6.0-liter biturbo engine able to deliver 630 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque.
The V12 AMG engine comes together with a new AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission. With such resources under the hood, the new supercar sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4 seconds while the top speed is limited at 250 km/h.
Mercedes says that the new technologies used to cut off the weight managed to improve the kerb weight by 170kg which improves both performance and fuel consumption.
“The combination of exclusive V12 dynamic performance and a refined roadster driving experience was already the defining attribute of the predecessor model”, says Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The new Mercedes SL 65 AMG features an electrohydraulically operated vario-roof able to retract in less than 20 seconds.
