The SL Benzmobile is now 6 decades old and the recipe for tradition is as always obscenely luxurious, obscenely quick and obscenely loud.
Whether you're just coaxing it around, the SL63's acceleration is simply brutal, and the engine's mammoth torque means it pulls hard from just about anywhere in the rev range.
With greater emphasis on the way it stops, steers and handles it is a sharper driving tool than the range topping V12-engined SL65 AMG. Thanks to the SL platform’s weight savings through an all aluminium bodyshell and a carbonfibre bootlid it also rivals the performance of the considerably more expensive SLS AMG supercar.
Deep with-in is the 5.5 litre V8 biturbo engine producing a mega 564bhp and a strong 664lb ft of torque through its Speedshift’ MCT 7-speed transmission strikes a good balance between refinement and response.
AMG speed-sensitive sports electro-mechanical power steering with variable assistance and revised Active Body Control (ABC) with AMG sports suspension, with increased negative camber all-round for more responsive handling AMG high-performance compound brake system.
Contemporary Silver Chrome trims mixed with double-stitched leather throughout, the SL feels every inch premium. It creates a breathtaking effect even when the soft top is open, because the workmanship in the material is visual and displays the evidence in the level of Mercedes’ famous and exclusive quality.
Handsomely presented is this one owner example finished in Metallic Obsidian Black wrapping AMG’s rich Nappa leather/semi-aniline-red interior. Assembled with all the tech Mercedes have to offer up top, this particular SL will turn heads including yours.
Housing all the luxuries in options like AMG specific IWC-Design analogue clock, AMG Performance steering wheel and 11-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound/infotainment systems and the all-safety Driver Assist Package, this machine is the perfect way to command through life.
