We travel to the south of France to test the lighter, faster, more powerful and more efficient new SL63 AMG
The Mercedes SL has always been a dream car, but it’s the range-topping AMG versions that have regularly appeared on the driveways of the rich and famous.
This new SL63 AMG is lighter, faster, more powerful and more efficient than the old flagship, so could it be the best yet? New editor Sam Hardy travelled to the South of France to find out.
The new SL63 AMG is powered by a 530bhp 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 and has a price tag of around £100,000. Mercedes also offers a Performance Package, which adds another £10,000 to the price, takes power to 557bhp and increases peak torque from 800Nm to 900Nm.
