Mercedes SL63 AMG vs SL65 AMG Video

Mercedes SL63 AMG vs SL65 AMG, these are the two most powerful SL models offered by Mercedes. SL63 is a V8 engine with 537 PS of power and 800 Nm of torque and needs only 4.3 seconds to reach 100 kph (62 mph) with 9.9 lt/km fuel consumption and 231 g/km CO2 emissions. On the other hand, SL65 AMG is a V12 engine with 630 PS of power and 1000 Nm of torque and needs only 4.0 seconds to 100 kph (62 mph) with 11.6 lt/km consumption and 270 g/km CO2 emissions.
However, SL65 AMG is a not very good choice, because the V12 engine is very powerful and the amount of power cannot be used efficiently. 630 PS of power and rear-wheel drive is not very good option! Also, the V12 engine is heavier than V8 and leads to manipulate weight distribution of the SL and may cause understeer. Lastly,V12 engine produces 1000 Nm of torque and this causes to increase the weight to transmission to cope with the excess amount of power.
Basically; SL63 AMG is cheaper, more economic and better packed :)

Goodwood Speed of Festival: Mercedes SL 63 AMG

Mercedes SL 63 AMG, what to say more ? 5,5-lt V8 engine produces 537 PS (564 PS with performance package)! And SL 63 AMG needs only 4,3 seconds to reach 100 kph (62 mph). Mercedes SL 63 AMG was presented during the Goodwood Festival of Speed last week and I had the unique opporutnity to look closer.
Production quality of the Mercedes SL 63 AMG is improved, especially you feel the improved quality in interior. I was not happy with some of the plastic interior parts in previous Mercedes SL. They were destroying the harmony of the interior and hopefully, Mercedes reduced the amount of plastic and improved the quality of existing plastic for interior. For exterior, SL 63 AMG does not look that aggressive. And I liked it, when the car is more aggressive customers purchase them to show-off, when the car does not look aggressive, it turns into an exclusive one. And Mercedes SL 63 AMG looks more exclusive rather than aggressive. So, it is cooler now!
Overall, Mercedes SL 63 AMG offer better quality, better design, more exclusive and obviously more competitive with exclusive brands. Now I can say that SL brand is more independent than the Mercedes brand. And Mercedes had to do this, in order to improve the competitiveness of the SL to Aston Martin, Maserati and Ferrari. 



Mercedes-Benz AMG Gold Car Fleet for Cannes Film Festival

Mercedes-Benz cars are covered by gold and published their photos in Mercedes-Benz official media site. So, there is a problem! Usually Mercedes-Benz media website never uploads photos like this but, this time it is an exception!

Mercedes-Benz and AMG cars will be providing golden fleet service for the Cannes Film Festival, 65th Palme d’Or. This means all of the Mercedes-Benz and AMG fleets car will be covered with gold colour! Just imagine the impact of the shining Mercedes-Benz and AMG cars in Cannes Film Festival. I guess, they may hinder the movie stars in some ways!

Also, there is going to be a Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary Edition at the Cinema Against AIDS Gala on 24th May. Moreover, Mercedes-Benz and AMG offer test drive for the guests and the visitors. If they will be testing the gold covered Mercedes-Benz and AMG cars, it will create very interesting scenery at Cannes!

I know one thing for sure; gold covered Mercedes-Benz and AMG cars will catch more attention than anything else in Cannes Film Festival.

New Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG

Today Mercedes released the photos and information about the new SL 63 AMG! I hope there won’t be SL 65 AMG, because with these performance figure, it will be really meaningless to offer it. Anyway, this new SL 63 AMG offers more power than ever, there is no point to have more!
So, I need to mention about the engine. Unfortunately, the engine is the same as the outgoing model 5,5-lt twin turbo V8, which produces 537PS or 564PS and 800nm or 900nm of torque. Why I did use the “or”. Because, Mercedes offers additional AMG Performance Package that will give you extra horse power, torque, handling, accuracy and 300 kph (186 mph) top speed. I can assume that with the Performance Package, you would have relatively slow, relative less handling and relatively under powered car.
Anyway, let’s go back to figures. Finally, Mercedes managed to reduce the weight by using aluminium and carbon fibre overall the car. I don’t mean the carbon fibre used in interior design. They used them in proper way. By doing this, this new SL 63 AMG is 1845 kg, less than 2-tonnes is a very good job for a car that offers ventilated seats and radar guided cruise control.
Unfortunately, the AMG engine is not capable of revving very high rpm. I really don’t know why but it is limited with 5500 rpm. Again unfortunately, new BMW 3,0-lt triple turbo powered diesel does the same rpm level. And Ferrari 458 can go up to 9000 rpm! Sometimes Mercedes thinks too much about comfort. Just rev the engine as much as possible :)
When it comes to acceleration, the relative slow model needs 4,3 seconds for 100 kph (62mph) and faster model needs 4,2 seconds! But, the main point is the acceleration while on move, because this new engine has lots of torques. And lots of torques mean one thing, you can accelerate like nothing on this earth! And all these power is sent by 7-speed double clutch gearbox.
I am pretty sure that Mercedes again achieved to make a very powerful sport car that can be driven at lower speed and inside the city. The main problem of very fast cars, they are terrible as low speeds. The gearbox is annoying, there is rear view, suspension is pain and it goes like that. However, Mercedes is perfect combining the both and making a car driveable while, you are going slow.
