Willow Springs, CA – Think the SLS AMG GT Roadster is the priciest of Mercedes-Benz’s convertibles, now at an eye-watering 2014 price of $224,200? Good but nope. That title to the vehicle you see here, the SL 65 AMG.

this range-topping two-seat may not look much different your garden-variety 124 grand SL 550 convertible – especially with strategically chosen options. But the SL $242,500 base price not sits atop the widest of convertibles of any brand in North but it’s also a crushing more than the SL 63 AMG, a performance-fortified hardtop convertible. And SL 63 AMG can be spec’d out to look exactly the SL 65, outside of the subtle V12 badging.

Yes, those badges are the sign that the SL 65 AMG features a 6.0L twin-turbocharged V12 engine under the SL’s dashing which is long for a convertible, but a lot smaller than the CL 65 AMG coupe, is the only other Mercedes-Benz to now share this huge All that displacement and those 12 add up to a supercar-worthy 621 hp, but the truly eye-popping here is the inertia-ripping 737 lb-ft of available as low as 2,300 rpm.

So flooring the accelerator with massive thrust behind it be like launching the space no? Well, it can be, and when you’re in a low with the transmission set to Sport, almost a surreal experience. The SL 65 take a split second to itself from a dead then jumps forward but silently, as if it’s an on-duty trying to pull off a sneaky down the street to tap the shoulder of a lost friend. It soon at full warp speed, but like it’s still hard to look and sound with only the most and refined

of engine pulses making it to the cabin.

Frankly, taking a brief back-to-back in this SL 65 and the much less 2014 SL 63 AMG, the ‘little’ 63 felt faster most of the because it was louder, firmer and raucous – refined still, but to a tone. Top speeds are the same at an limited 300 km/h, if one orders the AMG package on the SL 63, with Mercedes-Benz’s acceleration numbers barely an advantage for the V12-launched 65: 0-100 comes up in 4.1 seconds versus 4.3 for the SL 63, and 4.2 if that 63 has the aforementioned APP.

Both AMG SLs offer the distinctive looped shifter from the mated to seven-speed automatic with shift paddles, the SL 63’s seems tuned for and more aggressive shifts, in default mode. Compared to a loaded SL 63, the SL 65 boasts a couple of quilted patterns on the sports and headliner, but the main other inside is a unique AMG logo on the
