At the heart of the new SL 63 AMG is exactly what you would expect: a potent powerplant, created by AMG masterminds in Affalterbach, Germany. The specifics are AMG 5.5-liter V8 twin turbo engine with a displacement of 5461 cc. This engineering marvel generates a maximum power output of 386 kW (525 hp) and 700 newton meters of torque as a standard, but in conjunction with the AMG Performance package, these values rise to a show stopping 410 kW (557 hp) and 760 newton meters.
Additionally, the SL 63 AMG is packed with true sports-car performance: acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes 4.3 seconds and 4.2 seconds respectively, while the top speed stands at 250 km/h (electronically limited). With or without AMG Performance package, the NEDC fuel consumption figure of 9.9 liters per 100 kilometers remains the same.
