2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary edition will be unveiled in June 2012. The SL65 AMG Anniversary model will be produced in limited quantity, with only 45 being made to mark the 45th anniversary for AMG.

These limited edition vehicles may become valuable collector's items, just as the CL 65 AMG has become, after its release for AMG's 40th birthday in 2007.

Performance

AMG's Exterior Carbon-Fiber package is exclusive to the SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary. It features a cross strut in the front apron, as well as exterior mirrors, and spoiler lip, which are all produced in carbon fiber, with a beautiful satin finish.

The 6.0 liter, V-12, 630 horsepower engine has the capability of accelerating from 0-62 miles per hour, in just 4 seconds, with a top speed of 155 miles per hour. The AMG exhaust system provides a very distinct engine sound, and the outer enclosure of the twin tailpipe is a sporty black, with chrome plating to accent.

Exterior

The limited edition has a forged, multi-spoke, light alloy wheels in titanium gray, with high-sheen flange, and a classy matte finish. The designers created "designo magno graphite", a grey and satin look, which highlights the V12 roadster's look of power.

Matte finishing brings out the contours of the car's aluminum body, and highlighting in high-gloss chrome, adds interesting contrasts. The car has a new twin-blade grille, and newly designed enclosures for its daytime, LED driving lights, as well as new design tweaks featuring fins, wings, and a new hood design.

Interior

The Anniversary offering is sporty, classy, speedy, and safe. With every possible luxury, to provide comfort and convenience, safety is a top priority. A few of the extra features of the interior are: Multi-contour seat package, NECK-PRO head restraints, neck-level heating (AIRSCARF), KEYLESS-GO, Media Interface, Intelligent Light System (ILS), COMMAND on line with 6-disc DVD changer, and Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System.

Safety

On the side of safety, the following is provided: AMG's exclusive ceramic compound brake system, Driving Assistance Package, SAFE brake with lane assist, and blind-spot assist, PARKTRONIC, and automatic roll-over bars for driver and front-seat passenger.

Luxurious

With unique driving dynamics, along with maximum agility, a racing engine sound, sporty design, luxurious and safe interior, this 45th anniversary car is one to see, drive, and marvel. The launch of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary will begin in September 2012, highlighting the history of AMG, and their high-performance records.
