With the SL 63 'Black Series', AMG have created an all-out top-of-the
range model which is not about revenues but high-
lighting their skills in making
extraordinary sporting vehicles.
The outcome is, without any doubt, a super car!
Not only it performs 670hp, the tuners of the Mercedes works have also reduced
the former luxury roadster's weight by turning it into a coupe - meaning they have
detached the roof mechanism - and replacing many parts by ones made from carbon,
magnesium or aluminium.
Despite of the diet (-250kg), the racer still weighs in at almost 1,900kg! The
tweaked 6.0 litre turbo-charged 12-cylinder motor might push
it in outstanding 3.9 seconds to 100kph from a standstill however, there are some
flat, purebred super cars that are faster than the AMG flagship, especially on the
race track! But there is one record the things has achieved: It's definitely the
king of the evo cars! No other evolution of a production model is that fast.
And, as typical of an AMG Mercedes, it is agile yet very comfortable, precise and
easy to drive. 350 units at around 300,000 Euros will be produced to please wealthy
collectors and petrol heads. Not only to seduce them to invest on the thing, AMG
have created a micro page including downloads and technical specifications. You can
