The new generation of the popular roadster Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG has been officially revealed, almost two months after the 2013 SL-Class made its official debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
After a lot of spy photos with the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG hit the web, along with some renders of the model, the company has decided that time has come for the new roadster to be officially revealed, and this came in conjunction with launching the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W03 race car in Spain. As you can see from the video posted below this news, the 2013 SL63 AMG looks more aggressive than the new generation of the SL-Class, with larger air intake pockets into the front bumper, LED daytime running lights, new design on the grille and four trapezoidal exhaust tips.
Under the hood, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG is powered by the familiar M157 twin-turbocharged 5.5 liter V8 engine which is developing a total output of 529 horsepower. The new roadster is 110 kg (242 pounds) lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the all-aluminum bodyshell and magnesium components, which are helping the 0 to 62 mph acceleration time (4.2 seconds with the AMG Performance Pack). Fuel consumption is 30 percent lower at 28.5 mpg and CO2 emissions stop at 231 g/km compared to the previous 328 g/km. More details on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG will be announced on the 22nd of February.
