The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG is quite possibly the sports car that most enthusiasts have been clamoring for.
Right off the bat you are looking at 30 percent less fuel consumption than previous models without a loss of performance in this phenomenal roadster.
The SL 63 AMG delivers 536 HP while an optional performance package increases that figure to a spectacular 564 HP with 590 lb-ft of torque for fast acceleration and response. This plays out to a time of 4.3 seconds for 0 to 100 km per hour.
The transmission is the AMG SpeedShift MCT-7 with several options to adjust performance and fuel consumption through different modes. This is basically designed for any situation that requires different transmission performance and places control in the driver's hands.
Other components are specialized to improve performance and effectiveness such as floating calipers and an electronic parking brake. There are upgrades to increase the performance on the braking components, however the standard package is exceptionally effective.
The body of the new Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG is true to the Mercedes-Benz style yet has some distinct features that make it stand out from the brand. Incorporated in this model are large air dams that fit perfectly with the customary eloquent style while letting you know this is a speed machine and not a touring vehicle.
Chrome struts give off a sophisticated look while the daytime eyes are LED powered. The front end really draws your attention with the double louver chrome grill and similarly finished side vents. The spoiler is low and the rear facade is sleek for a nice overall appearance, front to back.
Many of the other components are what you would expect from the AMG while slightly updated for the benefit of the vehicle. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG is a must have for anyone that prefers performance, speed and sophistication in their roadster for the ultimate driving experience.
