After it introduced the 2013 Mercedes SL63 AMG less than a month ago, Daimler is now officially presenting the even more powerful SL65 AMG variant.

Inthis case we are talking about 630 HP and 1000 Nm of torque generated by a 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine, which despite being more potent, (+18 HP), it is also 17 percent more efficient that before as it requires 24.4 mpg in a combined cycle.

Some of the measures that were taken in order to make the 6.0-litre V12 engine more powerful include revised turbochargers with an increased spiral cross-section, new manifolds and wastegate ducts and a new engine management system with higher performance and optimised cylinder heads.  

The improved efficiency figures result from the fact that the new SL65 AMG weights 170 Kg less than before (1950 Kg in total), while in terms of performance, Daimler claims that their range topping roadster can sprintfrom 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 Km/h) in just 4.0 seconds (0 to 125 mph in 11.8 seconds), and attain a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 Km/h).

Forthe first time AMG has combined the 6-litre V12 biturbo engine with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G‑TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission, which apart from playing its role in the achievement of the above mentioned performance and efficiency figures, also enables the person behind the steering wheel to switch between four driving modes which areControlled Efficiency (C), Sport (S), Sport plus (S+) and Manual (M).  

The new SL65 AMG also comes with an AMG sports suspension based on the Active Body Control fitted on the SL63 AGM, newly developed electro-mechanical AMG speed-sensitive sports steering and the optional MAGIC SKY CONTROL vario-roof.

The 2013 Mercedes SL65 AMG will go sale in September, with prices starting at 236,334 Euro in German.
