2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG hits the dealerships

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 9, 2012

Global deliveries of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG will start within the next few days. The range-topping exclusive V12 Roadster, which can deliver up to 463 kW (630 hp) and a torque of 1000 Nm, can also now be test-driven. Customers can choose not to sign up for the traditional vehicle delivery method at dealerships and authorised agents of Mercedes-Benz.

They may receive their SL 65 AMG direct from the AMG Customer Center in Affalterbach. The benefit of this method is that customers get an exclusive insight into the world of AMG. They also get to experience AMG’s outstanding customer care. At the center, a personal customer service attendant will greet them and they will be accommodated in the AMG Private Lounge which was opened in 2011.

The customers will then receive a tour of the plant. They will visit the AMG Performance Studio, where individual and one-off AMG vehicles are created and built by hand in few numbers. At the AMG engine production facility, customers get the chance to talk to engineers who built the V12 engine in their SL 65 AMG by hand, in keeping with the traditional philosophy of "one man, one engine.” Customers will get the new SL 65 AMG in the new 360 m2 delivery hall.

They will be treated to a comprehensive briefing on the new V12 Roadster’s technology and operation. Collecting the vehicle from the AMG Customer Center in Affalterbach is an option offered on all AMG high-performance vehicles in Germany.

The vehicles would already have a full tank of petrol upon receipt. The mighty AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine can push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.8 seconds, while the top speed is limited at 250 km/h. Pricing for the SL65 AMG starts at 236,334 euros, while the SL65 AMG 45th Anniversary is priced at 272,034 euros!
