2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG Snarls: 2012 Geneva Auto Show
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG roadster debuted today at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, though it failed to steal attention from most of the crowd.
The group favorite was the 2013 A Class lineup, but that didn't stop us from having a little fan-time next to the brand's new-and-improved SL 63 AMG, which is a lot cooler than any A Class could dream of being.
Those new improvements include 30 percent greater fuel efficiency over its predecessor, boosted output and an almost 309-lb lighter curb weight thanks to generously distributed aluminum throughout the body.
For the first time, the SL63 AMG is available with both a 537- and 564-hp rating from the 5.5-liter biturbo V8 making 590- and 664 ft-lbs of torque respectively.
Customers may pick from 19-inch stock aluminum wheels or optional 20-inch upgrades. Inside those wheels, the car gets a newly-developed AMG high-performance compound brake system with six-piston calipers in the front and single-piston floating calipers in the rear.
