Intelligent lightweight construction with aluminum and carbon fiber, superior performance thanks to the AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine, and perfect tuning of all the components – these are the key technical criteria of the SL 65 AMG. They let a unique mix of exclusive V12 dynamism and sophisticated roadster pleasure arise. Despite its 463 kW (630 hp) and a maximum torque of 1000 Newton meters, the consumption values are comparatively low. A large part of this – in addition to the lightweight construction – is due to, among other things, the ECO start-stop function, the intelligent generator management and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G TRONIC. The seven-speed automatic transmission has four individually selectable driving modes; due to its large kingpin inclination, the engine speed is much lower.
