A stunning new addition to the Mercedes-Benz AMG range, the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 is a driver’s dream, combining exceptional agility with breath-taking acceleration. Powered by an AMG 5.5 litre V8 biturbo engine delivering 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque, it takes just 4.2 seconds to sprint from 0 - 62 mph.
Yet it also offers 30 per cent lower fuel consumption and emissions than its predecessor, thanks in part to its all-aluminium body shell and ultra-lightweight construction. This innovative design has helped significantly improve handling and efficiency without compromising safety or comfort.
Being an AMG, it also boasts high-octane styling inside and out – from the dramatic twin-blade radiator grille to the distinctive E-Select lever AMG DRIVE UNIT. And then there’s the noise, that signature AMG roar as you shift gears and dab the accelerator… You’ll never tire of hearing it.
Bold design and high-grade materials and finishes are the hallmarks of the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 interior. From the IWC analogue clock to the AMG door sill panels in brushed stainless steel and illuminated in white, this is a roadster with a unique sense of style.
Heated, multi-contour AMG sports seats are finished in AMG-specific nappa leather upholstery with the AMG emblem embossed in the backrest. The tactile 3-spoke AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather has distinctive flattened upper and lower sections for a motorsport feel.
As you put the roadster through its paces, key information is displayed in the AMG instrument cluster with AMG main menu.
Along with its innovative aluminium construction, the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 showcases an array of clever technologies, including the all-new Frontbass audio system.
A pioneering feature for Mercedes-Benz, the Frontbass system sees the bass speakers mounted into the vehicle bulkhead rather than the doors, with the footwell spaces acting as acoustic resonance chambers. The result is rich, distortion-free sound even when the roof is down and the AMG V8 is in full voice.
MAGIC VISION CONTROL, as first seen on the SL, is an ingenious wiper/washer system that applies washer fluid directly to the windscreen just in front of the wiper blade – in both directions of wipe. Not only is it efficient and effective, it means there’s no splash of water onto the windscreen to disrupt the driver’s visibility.
Other smart features are also included as part of the optional KEYLESS GO Comfort package, which lets you unlock the SL 63 AMG and start the engine without having to remove the key from your pocket or bag.
With its long hood and a passenger compartment repositioned far to the rear, long wheelbase – the silhouette of the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 speaks the AMG design language. The sleek AMG body, along with the rear apron with the large diffuser, compliment each other well. The AMG front A-wing in gloss black, the sporty side skirts and those titanium grey Alloy wheels, along with an AMG high-performance composite brake system with perforated and ventilated brake discs, complete this powerful model.
Once you hit the accelerator, feel the force as it combines with the AMG sports exhaust with chrome-plates twin tailpipe trim elements that reverberates with its impressive AMG 8-cylinder sound.
The Mercedes-AMG SL 63, Mercedes-Benz continues to exceed industry safety standards. From the award-winning PRE-SAFE® (optional) anticipatory safety system to ATTENTION ASSIST, it’s loaded with technology to help avoid accidents and protect its occupants and other road users.
Standout features include the newly developed optional AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system, which enables incredibly short stopping distances – no mean feat with a car this powerful.
What’s more, despite its lightweight construction, the chassis of the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 boasts exceptional torsional stiffness, helping to enhance occupant protection and reduce vibration for a more comfortable drive.
An enhanced version of the AMG sports suspension, based on the Active Body Control system, offers a choice of Sport and Comfort modes, adjusting the ride characteristics accordingly. Coupled with AMG speed-sensitive sports steering and the AMG high-performance composite braking system, it makes for a supremely agile driving experience with excellent feedback and control..
With its fully retractable vario-roof, the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 transforms from sports coupé to roadster in less than 20 seconds. All it takes is the touch of a button.
To enhance the open-top experience – as if that were necessary – innovative features include the Frontbass audio system, which delivers rich, clear sound quality even with the roof down. You will also find leather upholstery with anti-reflective coating to keep the seats cool when the sun is beating down.
In cooler conditions, optional AIRSCARF wraps warm air around the neck area of both driver and passenger – so there’s no need to raise the roof. But if you do, the optional panoramic glass vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL switches from dark to clear at the touch of a button – so you can still let the sunlight flood in.
