The new 2013 Mercedes SL65 AMG is being scheduled to be released to the market this September 2012. The new 2013 Mercedes SL65 AMG is a more powerful version that has been shown at the last 2012 New York Auto Show. With the 2013 Mercedes SL65 AMG will have AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine that delivers a total of 621 HP and a maximum torque of 738 lb-ft shows that even fast car can be that luxury. Looking at the design, Mercedes has done it again with showing the luxury site on their performance car.
Just like all of the other models launched recently, the new SL65 AMG has received the new AMG brand face. This is immediately recognizable in the car’s new “twin blade” radiator grille in high-sheen chrome and the lower cooling air intake, as well as in the gap formed below the fine black fin at the lower edge of the cooling air opening that allows an optimum airflow over the cooling modules.
High-sheen chrome was also used for the lower cross strut in the front apron, the surrounds of the special AMG daytime running lamps, the fins on the bonnet, and the side of the wings. The new SL65 AMG will be further distinguished thanks to its front apron with large openings for the engine oil, water, charge air and transmission oil coolers, the specially shaped side sill panels, the AMG spoiler lip, and the diffuser-look rear apron with a vehicle-color insert.
Finding a real competitor for the new SL65 AMG isn’t that difficult, but the car was developed as a direct response to the Porsche 911 Turbo – a model that is about to enter its new generation. The new 911 Turbo is powered by the same 3.8L turbocharged flat six engine as the current 911 Turbo, but massaged to deliver more than the current 500 HP for the standard Turbo and 530 HP for the Turbo S. Models like the Jaguar XKR-S may also serve up some decent competition. The Jag is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged AJ-V8 engine that delivers a total of 543 HP and a peak torque of 502 lbs-ft. Top speed also sits at 186 mph.
