The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG captures the imagination with its refined,
stylish performance. The AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine generates a peak
output of 621 hp and a maximum torque of 738 lb-ft. The distinctive front end is
dominated by the new "twin-blade" grille with two blade-shaped fins and the
lower horizontal bar in the front skirt in high-gloss chrome.
"The combination of exclusive V12 dynamics and cultivated roadster pleasure was already unique in the previous model. We are certain that, with the new SL65 AMG, we have developed a stunning high-performance automobile beyond compare for a small, but loyal fan base," says Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The intelligent lightweight design of the bodyshell also contributes to the reduction of fuel consumption. A key element in the improved fuel efficiency is the result of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7-Speed transmission, the ECO stop/start function, and improvements to the internal efficiency of the engine and alternator management. Despite a considerable improvement in fuel economy, the peak output of the AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine is up from 604 hp to 621 hp. The maximum torque stands at a mighty 738 lb-ft.
This unparalleled output provides amazing propulsion for the 2014 SL65 AMG - acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes 3.9 seconds. Top speed in the U.S. market stands at 186 mph. The key attributes of the AMG biturbo twelve-cylinder include its heart stopping acceleration, and seamless power delivery combined with a distinctive AMG V12 soundtrack.
