Mercedes-AMG recently revealed the first details and images of 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG. The car is slated for a public debut at 2012 New York Auto Show in April.
Under the hood of some really elegant bodywork is a giant Biturbo V12 6 liter motor with a massive power output of 630-hp-737.5 lb-ft. The engine is mated to a new AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G TRONIC.Mercedes says that the car will offer ‘exceptional performance, impressive power delivery and effortlessly superior dynamics.’ And we have no intentions of doubting this claim.It is the first time that this new transmission is being used and it offers four modes to select from: C (Controlled Efficiency), S (Sport), S+ (Sport plus) and M (Manual). The C mode employs the ECO start/stop function is active for full time and the gigantic motor is switched off when the car is stationary.
The SL65 has an all aluminium body shell that has resulted into a drop of 374 pounds in weight when compared to the prev model. Our favourite bit in the design will be the new front fascia that will gradually trickle down to all AMG branded cars. On the inside, the car comes with electrically adjustable AMG sports seats with single or two-tone upholstery in nappa leather, embossed AMG emblems on the backrests, AIRSCARF neck-level heating, multicontour functionality and heated seats as standard features.
