The Mercedes SL 63 AMG is all about that charismatic V8 engine. It sounds fantastic, growling at low speeds which turns into a whale as the revs go up. There is plenty of power and torque, of course, and thanks to the aluminium body structure it is even more effective than before. It isn’t just about power tough; this is a very flexible powerplant. Equally at home pottering around in traffic as it is on the track.
The styling of this generation SL lacks the harmony and elegance of previous cars, but it does look purposeful. The interior trim is beautifully put together and follows the same SLS inspired style as other Mercedes contemporaries. This one gets all the luxuries though and all the latest technology ensures that you are always in comfort.
The Mercedes SL AMG remains one of the finest luxury sports cars money can buy. The latest engine and chassis tuning make it a great drivers car, but it has lost none of grand touring refinement.
