AMG Was Founded As A Racing Engine Forged In 1967 By The Former Mercedes Engineers, Hans Werner Aufrecht And Erhard Melcher, With The Letters "AMG" Standing For Aufrecht, Melcher and Großaspach (Aufrecht's Birth Town). Now Owned By Daimler Mercedes, This Special Brand Is A High Profile Purveyor Of Modified Mercedes Vehicles, Adored By Drivers And Feared By Other Manufacturers. In 2001 The Bremen Factory In German Gave Us The All New R230 Version With This Dramatic New Design To Be Fully Showcased At The Frankfurt Motor Show, Which Ran For Just Over Seven Years Until A Further Face Lift Was Offered To A Global Audience At The 2008 Geneva Motor Show, With This Fresh Looking Example Boasting A Revised More Aggressive Front Nose, A Pair Of Power Domes On The Bonnet, A Varied Selection Of Upgraded Engine Options And More Modern Up To Date Technology, All Of Which Was Greatly Received By Buyers Around The World. Like Many SL Models Of The Past, There Was Always Going To Be The Top Of The Range Mighty AMG Model Included As Part Of The Company`s Line Up, With The Focus And Design Still To Offer Exceptional Luxurious Refinements, Relevant First Class Options And A Monstrous AMG Engine, That Would Offer Drivers The Ultimate Level Of Performance. From Factory The SL63 AMG Was Fitted With The Massive Six Point Two Litre V8 Engine, Which Produced A More Than Healthy 525 BHP With 465 Of Torque, Capable Of Accelerating Both The Driver And Passenger From 0-62 MPH In Just 4.7 Seconds And Would Further Climb To An Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 155 MPH.
Mercedes' AMG tuning division is never shy about the amount of power its cars produce. So it should come as no surprise that out of the blue, the SL63 AMG now delivers 577bhp – an increase of 47bhp – and features a limited-slip differential as standard.
