The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG which debuted at the 2012 New York Auto Show is a combination of power with class. The lightweight aluminum body leads to drastic weight reductions, so as to procure the desired aerodynamics for the stunning high performance and effective fuel consumption.
The intelligent lightweight design and the AMG speed shift plus 7-Speed transmission provides internal efficiency to the engine, leading to a top speed of 186mph and an acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The new fuel economy torque converter and the transmission oil thermal management further increases the fuel efficiency and provides a maximum torque of 738 lb-ft. The car travels 100km for just 11.6 liters of petrol.
The new electromechanical AMG speed-sensitive steering provides optimum handling and performance. The performance is further harnessed by rear-axle locking differential, which provides excellent dynamics and stability over the car.
The exteriors of the car are being blossomed by the titanium grey painted and polished 5-spoke AMG alloy wheels with 255/35 R 19 tires on the front and 285/30 R 19 on the rear. The Mercedes star mounted on the edge with the strong arrow form of the grill which optimizes the vehicles vertical geometry adds more visual emphasis and aerodynamics to the cars profile.
The AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine (M 279) is based on the previous M 275 unit and has been extensively developed for its application in the new SL65 AMG. New turbochargers with an enlarged spiral cross-section, new manifolds and wastegate channels optimized for airflow deliver an additional 17 hp. The multi-spark ignition with twelve twin ignition coils not only makes for smoother running, but also works together with a new, more powerful engine management and optimized cylinder heads to provide even more effective combustion. The outcome is fewer exhaust emissions, which is also in large part due to the optimized catalytic converter system.
