2009 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG

Mercedes-Benz Debuts SL63 AMG

MONTVALE, NJ — Mercedes-Benz is a fourth member of its iconic SL car family — the SL63 Perhaps the sportiest SL roadster the new SL63 AMG is powered by a 6.2-liter, all-AMG V8 engine that’s to a newly developed MCT transmission.

an innovative start-up clutch replaces a conventional torque the seven-speed MCT (for multi-clutch transmission combines the direct of a manual gearbox with the automatic gear shifts of a 1 race car. Topping off the SL is an even more agile AMG suspension based on the Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension.

MCT Transmission — The of Both Worlds

Providing the feedback of a manual transmission the total convenience of an automatic, the new MCT with AMG Speedshift is an all-new available only in the new SL63 Featuring seven speeds, shift modes and a double-clutching the MCT transmission offers impressive and even faster shift

At the heart of the new AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed transmission is a new start-up clutch, runs in an oil bath and replaces a torque converter. Thanks to its low mass, the start-up clutch the transmission respond instantaneously and with no slip.

Fitted four drive modes: C S (Sport), S+ (Sport plus) and M the transmission provides customized control for maximum driving and does so with no interruption of In Comfort mode, smooth coupled with a soft response are set up for silky smooth transfer. In Sport mode, the and transmission interact quicker upshifts and downshifts take at higher engine speed. are around 20 percent faster in Comfort mode. Switching to the Plus mode cuts 20 percent off shift times, the sportiest mode, Manual, shifting times by another 10 — a total reduction of 50 compared with Comfort In Manual mode, the gearshifts just 100 milliseconds.

Ultra-fast, spontaneous multiple are another forte of the new MCT sports For instance, kickdown will directly from seventh to fourth gear or from to second. In the S (Sport), S+ (Sport and M (Manual) modes, an automatic function is active. Every or automatic downshift is accompanied by metered double-clutching — S through S+ to M incrementally. Not only double-clutching make driving fun, but virtually load-free minimizes any jerking, a special when braking into a

The First Engine Developed the Ground Up by AMG

The SL63 AMG is powered by an AMG V8 engine that features valves per cylinder, variable timing, bucket tappets than rocker arms) and a intake manifold. Sharing no with Mercedes-Benz V8 engines, the engine was a completely autonomous at AMG.

Built almost from a high-strength silicon-aluminum the cylinder bores make use of a (TWAS) coating, a process results in impressively low friction and surfaces that are twice as as conventional cast-iron cylinders.

The engine block boasts an rigid bedplate acting as the support of the main bearings to a one-piece set of main bearing cast-in steel reinforcements and a closed-deck layout in the cylinder area. The high-flow intake and ports form a vertical line, helping the 6.3 AMG engine rev to more than 7,000 yet the highly flexible AMG engine produces nearly 90 percent of its torque at only 2,000

A finely balanced crankshaft six counterweights spins in five crankshaft bearings. The crankshaft feature heavy metal — a detail usually only in racing engines which means they can be smaller, increasing power by rotational inertia and oil drag.

Each forged connecting rod is cracked with the help of a beam, so the irregular fracture to its strength when the two halves are around the crankshaft. The connecting and lightweight pistons are matched for close weight tolerances contribute to smooth running at speeds. Small nozzles in the block spray cooling oil the underside of each piston

Bucket Followers Instead of Arms

Twin overhead in each cylinder bank the 32 valves via bucket-type followers. In words, instead of rocker the cam lobes sweep across the top of the followers, which sit directly on top of the stems. This space-saving provides a very stiff train that allows for valve openings and dependable operation for maximum horsepower and However, in contrast to racing each bucket incorporates a lifter that automatically valve clearance, which for long service intervals and low

The AMG V8 makes use of variable intake and valve timing to maximize and torque over a wide RPM Valve timing can be automatically within a range of 40 degrees electro-hydraulic vane-type adjusters on camshaft. At part throttle, the timing adjuster keeps the valves open as the intake are opening, using this overlap for internal exhaust gas reducing exhaust emissions and fuel economy. However, full throttle, the camshaft optimizes valve timing for power. The intake cams are by a double chain from the and small gears on the intake in turn drive the exhaust

The SL63 Gets Unique Touches

The SL63 comes a distinctive AMG front hood noticeably different from SL models, as well as a new front with a more pronounced shape, larger cooling air and a black grille. Bi-xenon with black surrounds and round fog lights ringed in and set well to the side emphasize the width.

Hot air from the engine exits side air outlets in the front and from the gills behind the wheels. Trim panels in matte silver with 6.3 AMG catch the eye, as do new outside with arrow-shaped LED turn

SL63 AMG body styling includes deeper AMG side panels and a beefy-looking rear that incorporates a large air diffuser and two pairs of chrome An AMG rear lip spoiler on the trunk lid lift, especially at high

Finished in nappa leather and carbon fiber, the interior standard AMG sport seats, an AMG steering wheel and a sport cluster with red tach and needles that swing to the max and back whenever the ignition is on.

Optional Performance Package for the AMG

An optional Performance Package is available for the SL63 AMG, includes even higher-performance that are well suited for drivers:

· Top speed to 186 mph · Vented ceramic brake discs that are inches in diameter · limited-slip rear differential a 40 percent locking factor of for traction · 19-inch AMG forged light-alloy wheels Staggered-width tires: 255 / 35 R 19 in front and 285 / 30 R 19 at the · AMG high-performance suspension on ABC active suspension · AMG sport steering wheel a flattened underside and silver-aluminum paddlesv

AIRSCARF Around the and Neck

All 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL are now available with AIRSCARF, an feature that can extend the driving season into the months. Another technological from Mercedes, AIRSCARF is an heating system built the driver and passenger seats. At the of a button, warm air flows vents in the head restraints, as an invisible scarf around the and neck.

Testing revealed that just a relatively small around the neck dramatically comfort in cooler weather. The neck-level heating system warm air from the head of the driver and passenger seats, occupants to cruise comfortably the retractable hardtop open in weather. AIRSCARF uses a element made primarily of titanate, which heats up in a of seconds when electrical is applied.

Optional on the V8-powered SL AMG and standard on the SL65 AMG, the neck-level heating system compensates automatically for changes in air and vehicle speed. AIRSCARF with a three-speed switch and an control module that data from the speedometer as as from inside and outside sensors. AIRSCARF automatically the fan speed based on this and at the same time, the switch can the automatic settings.

New Audio

From Coupe to in 16 Seconds

At the push of a button, the retractable hardtop can be fully or closed in just 16 seconds, the car from a quiet, weather-tight to a top-down open-air convertible. A pump and 11 computer-controlled hydraulic power the system, and roof is controlled by a switch on the center A clever folding design for a surprisingly large cargo of 7.2 cubic feet when the top is With the top up, the trunk holds cubic feet.

The World’s Safest Convertible

acclaimed as one of the world’s safest the SL provides sports car performance all the built-in safety that’s from Mercedes-Benz. Since an car can leave its occupants vulnerable in a Mercedes engineers met the challenge in the SL the world’s first automatic bar.

Normally part of the rear-compartment surround structure, the leather-covered bar pops up, locking in in a third of a second if sensors an impending rollover. The driver can raise and lower the bar by a switch on the

Shoulder belts are integrated into the seats for greater protection, especially in roll­overs. The SL was also the first car with airbags, which are part of a system that includes front airbags and emergency retractors that tighten the belts in a collision.

V8 and V12 Power

The two AMG SL models for 2009 feature a of V8 and V12 power. The SL63 AMG is powered by a four-valve-per-cylinder V8 with 518 horsepower and 465 of torque, while V12-powered AMG, makes 604 hp and a monstrous 738 of torque.

AMG High-Performance Braking

stopping power for the SL is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with four-channel ABS anti-lock Matched to its power and speed the SL63 AMG comes with 14.2-inch vented rotors up and 13.0-inch vented rotors at the while the SL65 AMG boasts discs that are another 1.2 in diameter.

Also new are 19-inch AMG staggered-width wheels — 8.5 and 9.5 inches — fitted with 255 / 35 R 19 and 285 / 30 R 19 (rear) tires. With styling and a titanium grey the AMG alloy wheels complement the new AMG styling.

ABC Active Suspension Cat-Like Agility

The SL chassis a fully independent, double-control-arm suspension and the patented Mercedes-Benz rear suspension. All SL models with second-generation Active Control (ABC), the Mercedes-Benz technology that virtually body roll in cornering, under acceleration and dive braking.

Each SL uses programming specific to the model, to tuning the spring rates, damping and roll stiffness of a suspension. Special AMG struts firmer damping and fully systems such as ABS anti-lock Brake Assist, ASR traction and ESP stability control complement the AMG chassis.

Mercedes-Benz engineers use interplay of hydraulic, electronic and parts to reduce body by 68 percent (compared to the same with a conventional suspension), the driver with needed through the vehicle chassis. A switch on the center console can it 95 percent reduced roll, with tighter shock Active suspension solves the tradeoff between ride and handling precision, so SL roadsters excellent comfort and league-leading [Source: Mercedes-Benz Press
