A Mercedes-AMG® engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG® technology is fueled by its racing success.
A high-tech, high-torque powerhouse, each SL biturbo V8 is crafted by its own master in the AMG® tradition. Paired with an AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9-speed, specific SL refinements to both engine and gearbox help rush the 469-hp SL 55 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, or the 577-hp SL 63 in just 3.5.
AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune the throttle, shifting, damping, steering and more. Color display buttons on the steering wheel engage preset modes from Comfort to Sport+, or an Individual mode you can customize. The SL 55 Performance and SL 63 add a RACE mode.
