Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG

How would you like to drive around with a car that delivers torque of up to 1,000Nm? That's exactly what Mercedes-Benz promises with the new SL 65 AMG right out of Stuttgart in Germany.

The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG is packed with a 6.0-liter V12 twin turbocharged engine with the power of 630 horses.

"The combination of exclusive V12 dynamic performance and a refined roadster driving experience was already the defining attribute of the predecessor model," said Ola Kallenius, Mercedes-AMG GmbH chief executive. "We are convinced that, with the new SL 65 AMG, we have developed an incomparably exciting high-performance vehicle for the small but loyal community of fans."

With its more powerful engine, the new SL 65 AMG can run from zero to 100kph in four seconds and reach 200kph in 11.8 seconds.

The SL 65 AMG is the first to be equipped with a combination of a 6.0-liter V12 and the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic. The system comes with four driving modes: controlled efficiency (C), sport (S), sport plus (S+) and manual (M).

For all its promise of power and luxury, the new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG also pledges driver and passenger safety with its crash-optimized aluminum structure and restraint systems.
