The restyled version of the Mercedes-AMG SL 65 was presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2015, where together with it the updated SL 63 and the usual roadster SL-class in the body of R231 have shown.

Expressive Appearance

Unlike the previous SL 65 AMG, the current features a fully re-shaped front end, which has a more smooth outline. The top roadster received a new headlights and a grille, as well as a different bumper with large air intakes on the sides.

Behind the car, lights and a bumper with exhaust system pipes were exposed, and in the Mercedes-AMG SL 65 interior there appeared a watch, a slightly modified steering wheel and a screen of a multimedia system grown in size.

If you compare this version with the SL 63, then there are other wheels installed, the calipers are painted yellow, and the lining on the thresholds and the front bumper are made of aluminum instead of carbon.

Hi-tech interior

Luxuriously equipped interior will satisfy any wishes. The basic equipment includes, among other things, AMG sport seats with improved lateral support and nappa leather trim, which differ – depending on the specific model – with a distinctive design, multi-circuit functionality and heating function.

Thanks to the trimmed-down Performance Steering wheel in a three-spoke design with black nappa leather trim and silver shift paddles made of aluminum, the AMG SL will always be under its own control with its driver.

Decorative carbon finish and analog watches with a design from the IWC underscore the special position of this highly dynamic roadster. A custom-made decorative aluminum trim with a carbon-fiber grinding pattern will give this open two-seater a note of even greater individuality.

Huge Load of Power

Under the hood of the updated Mercedes-AMG SL 65 remained 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, giving out 630 horsepower and 737 ft lb, which is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

From a place to a sixty the car accelerates in 3.9 seconds, which is only 0.1 sec faster than SL63, and the maximum is limited to a mark of 155 mph. When ordering AMG Driver’s package, the limiter can be weakened to 186 miles per hour.
