2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG

ridiculous, really. This Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG grand roadster, stocked with warmers and heated seats, more torque than the C6 ZR1, Shelby Mustang or Viper TA.

Aside from being amazed at this stat, I couldn’t help but to ask Who really needs 664 lb-ft of

One needs only to remember the base of AMG. Among the of Beverly Hills, Gangnam, Bishops Avenue, etc. an ego-driven impetus for increasingly amounts of vehicular grunt year after model It’s silly, especially in an age high MPGs and tiny CO2 are all the rage.

Yet, following brief stint inside the rumbling beast donning a at its nose and an apple tree on its key I again understand and appreciate innate human affection “moar powah” and high

In the past, I dubbed Mercedes’ G63 AMG epitome of badass.” Well, its two-passenger rear-wheel drive, sibling offers well-heeled an identical level of bad-assery, in a refined, sexualized, curvaceous

A few colleagues wholeheartedly disagree my admiration of this sixth-generation design, saying, “It looks three people put it together,” and headlights. Ugh. It looks they have some of horrible birth defect.” sure, the bi-xenon lights be a bit overbearing, and yes, maybe its front clip, and rear necessarily flow as fluidly as of the Pininfarina-penned Maserati GranCabrio MC. around L.A. a town polluted with six-figure countless faces (many of belonging to attractive females) to the SL63′s exotic sheetmetal. The car I’ve driven in the last six that’s drawn more is Lexus’ $400,000 LFA.

I these uncommon stares to our equally uncommon combination of a Black exterior and matte 19-inch front/20-inch rear forged aluminum wheels AMG’s Exterior Carbon Package ($3570) with front splitter, trunk and mirror housings magnify the allure. Darth Vader undoubtedly have this SL at one of his evil lairs with the plate “TRQV8DR” bolted on its As a man fond of cutting-edge tech and he’d order his with the Carbon Fiber option and P01 1 Package ($4300). The latter things such as a rearview ventilated seats, electronic opener, and Airscarf, while the includes tasteful carbon-fiber pieces that replace the aluminum or wood on dash, and center console. Then the stylish red and black premium on just about all other of the comfortable space. Aside the often-frustrating COMAND multimedia with its many levels of and a rearview camera that functions when the system is on, this is sporty luxury at its finest.

Although it bears a laughable Mercedes’ Magic Sky Control — an dimming system that or darkens the glass ceiling at the press of a button — justified its premium on the many days my beautiful co-pilot didn’t the hardtop stowed beneath its lid, but still wanted to in the sun. The lightweight lid is part of the P30 AMG Performance Package ($9000), also adds red calipers, a steering wheel, limited-slip top speed bump to 186 mph, most significantly, a power of 27 horses and 74 lb-ft of torque.

Compared to the 429-horsepower SL550 we almost a year ago, the TRQV8DR is a half-second quicker to 60 mph a standstill (3.5 seconds) and 3 feet shorter from the speed (102 versus 105 With the massive 285/30R-20 Continentals warmed to their operating levels, our hot-shoe Mortara saw a quarter-mile in 11.8 at 123 mph, some 0.7 second and 9 mph than the 550. Grip as you can imagine, improved as well. lateral acceleration is now 0.97 g the base car’s 0.94 g

Just four years such athleticism would meant the V-12-powered Black treatment. The 63′s sprints to 60 mph and the quarter-mile are nearly dead with those of the 2010 AMG Black Series Coupe, a monster packing 661 horsepower a twin-turbo V-12. Its braking, and lateral acceleration numbers are than the $300,000 limited as well.

One key observation: Gathering data in the SL63 wasn’t easy. Like that expensive Black Series, SL is a lot to handle when driven with its many electronic disabled. In fact, we wouldn’t turning them off at all unless a professional driver, an extremely average Joe, and/or a stakeholder in a premium tire

“It’s like driving on noted one staffer when the SL’s adoration of power Although it takes some to master on a track, the 63 is a quick when jockeyed correctly. a time of 23.9 seconds and an stick of 0.88 g, it’s and gummier on our figure-eight course a C6 Corvette 427 (24.1 seconds at g).

Turbo torque is ubiquitously The full cache of thrust can be at an unbelievably low 2000 rpm. seven nicely spaced ratios, there is no uncomfortable for the proper cog when a stroll a sprint. Want to pass slower SUV, you say? TORQV8R a smidge more to glide by. He doesn’t mind one

Nor does he mind hard on backcountry roads. A run up and down San Palomar Mountain not only the AMG-assembled powertrain’s smoothness and but also the adeptness and civility of the six-piston 15.4-inch front/14.2-inch brakes and AMG-tuned Active Control (ABC) adjustable

The binders annihilated momentum as and confidently as the 5.5-liter twin-turbo created it. ABC shored up damping to reduce the SL’s pitch and on Palomar’s sharp and sweeping to nearly nil degrees. I tip my hat to AMG’s team: Their SL withstood the brunt of my two-hour mountain and descent on a blistering 85-degree day fault, not to mention an additional two worth of hard miles at the of other MT staffers.

Nobody needs 664 lb-ft of torque. Not the fund manager, not the young not the Hollywood actress with of expendable cash, not even the fanatical automotive maven who the basics of high-performance driving. But not the torque that creates the call – it’s that character badge, that build quality, that exclusivity, that easy that sexy style, cushy cabin, that Affalterbach rumble. They’re all traits that feed the egos who crave the feeling of and who will likely make the 63 their next plausible

So go ahead and thank your moneyed neighbor, for if they and the they’ve created didn’t we wouldn’t have such a uber-refined, stratospherically powered, well-endowed, tech-jammed, 25-mpg-on-the-highway touring athlete to appreciate.
