In order to mark its 45th birthday which will take place in June 2012, AMG created a special Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG "45th ANNIVERSARY". The bad news is that this model will be produced in a limited edition of just 45 vehicles, but the good news is that the V12 roadster boasts an exclusive array of unusual appointments and design features.

For those who don’t know, AMG also marked its 40th Anniversary with a special edition of the CL 65 AMG. The well-known AMG brand was founded back in 1967 by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher and over the past 45 years the former two-man company has evolved into a world-renowned producer of unique high-performance automobiles.

Now, let’s focus on the latest model! The new SL 65 AMG "45th ANNIVERSARY" features an Exterior Carbon-Fiber package in matt finish which is exclusive for this model. As a result, the SL 65 AMG features cross strut in the front apron, exterior mirrors and spoiler lip in carbon fiber with a satin finish. The V12 engine was also refreshed and received a high-quality engine cover consisting of matt carbon fiber and aluminum.

The rear end features twin tailpipes finished in high-gloss chrome. The design is completed by the multi-spoke forged wheels painted in titanium grey with high-sheen rim flange and matt finish.

The interior features designo Exclusive STYLE leather in titanium grey pearl/ginger beige.
