Mercedes Benz Officially Launches the SL65 AMG
|   Saturday, April 20, 2013
There are certain areas of the car market that can still be worked upon even though they are fairly equipped with modern technology. The best proof regarding this fact is the new Mercedes Benz SL 65 AMG. The vehicle has been tuned to offer better performance along with additional fuel efficiency measures as well as better CO2 emission which helps it meet the European safety standards in a better manner.

The vehicle is powered by 12 turbo charged cylinders and this is the most powerful / fastest R231 generation SL in production at the moment.
The SL 65 AMG – like all AMGs – is a semi sports semi cruising vehicle and considering the AMG tag, there should not be any complaints regarding this vehicle. The 6.0 liter petrol V12 engine powering this vehicle displaces 621 BHP and 737 ft lbs of torque, which is more than the 530 BHP displaced by the SL 63.

The SL 65 AMG does not feature many external modifications and this is an overall smooth looking car meeting the basic visual aesthetic level of most people. The ride quality is abrupt while the vehicle is very rev friendly. Torque is the key aspect of this vehicle and Mercedes Benz has designed this vehicle to perform. The turbo is very responsive and kicks in at the right moment, enhancing the experience for performance lovers.

This is a cruiser and does not need any better reason to take out for long drives. Mercedes Benz has mated the engine to a seven speed automatic dual clutch transmission system and this does its part to enhance overall performance of the vehicle. Mercedes Benz has also introduced Active Body Roll Control in the SL 65 AMG and this maintains stability at high speed.

The vehicle actually sinks a few millimeters closer to the ground while moving at speed and this increases traction while reducing the risk of toppling over. Most of the functions of the car are controlled by the central electronics device and this brings about a certain level of efficiency of the vehicle. The suspension and damper settings on the vehicle have been tuned to the optimum level and this increases the overall comfort level of the vehicle.

The driver feels lively within the cabin of this machine and this vehicle has the potential to become a complete British cruiser. The steering is surprisingly lightweight and controlling the car is quite simple. However, straight line performance has not been enhanced by a great margin although cornering can be done more confidently than ever before. Priced at £168,250, this is a potential vehicle. The company claims that the vehicle reaches 0 – 60 MPH in less than 4.0 seconds while featuring a top speed of 155 MPH. The vehicle is fairly economical and is perfect for owning and maintain as it is quite cheap considering other vehicles in the segment. Weighing a total of 1950 kg, this vehicle is light weight considering the power displacement and this enhances overall performance of the machine.
