AMG SL ROADSTER
Rooted in history. Rebooted for tomorrow
AMG SL 63 4MATIC+ Roadster
Its racing legacy includes records for endurance that have themselves endured for decades. As a sports car for the open road, it's won hearts and fulfilled dreams. It's pioneered innovations in performance, safety and luxury. Like no other car, it's a true icon. And it is reborn.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
The power of a single pair of hands.
A high-tech, high-torque powerhouse, each SL biturbo V8 is crafted by its own master in the AMG tradition. Paired with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed, specific SL refinements to both engine and gearbox help rush the 577-hp SL 63 4MATIC+ to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. Disclaimer
Driving modes, fingertip-close.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune the throttle, shifting, damping, steering and more. Colour display buttons on the steering wheel engage preset modes from Comfort to Sport+, or an Individual mode you can customize. There's even a RACE mode for track use. Disclaimer
A legend turns a new corner
Developed from the curving road up by Mercedes-AMG, the new SL shares its architecture with no other car. And it rushes its rich legacy ahead with handling innovations never before seen on an SL, from agile performance all-wheel drive to dynamic all-wheel steering.
Gets down, or up, to business
Standard AMG Performance 4MATIC+ intelligently apportions torque to all four wheels, an SL first. Multimode AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL is standard, and it can near-instantly adapt at each wheel to resist body roll. Available front-axle lift can help make steep driveways less fearsome. Disclaimer
Goes all-in on steering
Standard rear-axle steering can turn the rear wheels up to 2.5 degrees, in phase with or opposite the fronts. Intelligent control factors speed, turning angle and other parameters for quicker, more stable handling at speed, or tighter, more nimble parking maneuvers.
An even sweeter performance suite
Driving responses, and the driver's, are heightened with the standard AMG Dynamic Plus Package. It includes the enhanced handling precision of an electronic limited-slip rear differential. Yellow calipers and a RACE mode each add their own verve. Disclaimer
Advancement is the SL tradition
There may be no sports car with such a rich history. Of making history. From superlative performance to advanced lightness, it's a purer sports car, a grander tourer, and a more openly ebullient roadster.
A body to drive for
An intelligent composition of aluminum, high-strength steel, magnesium and carbon fibre composites creates a body that's more rigid, more safety-focused, and more precisely crafted. It's also more aerodynamic, with a lower center of gravity. All with undeniably seductive looks.
Go for the flow
Extreme attention to every aerodynamic detail draws numerous benefits from thin air. From an advanced grille shutter system to a multistage rear spoiler, the SL's active aero responds to a range of conditions to optimize cooling, minimize drag, emphasize downforce, and heighten enjoyment.
Clear as the sun
Modern art and technology unite for visual, tactile and tactical rewards in the SL cockpit. Controls react to your touch or your natural voice. Large displays are crisp in design and clear in function. The 11.9-inch central touchscreen tilt-adjusts to fight top-down glare. Disclaimer
All the looks. Looks the part
Its aesthetics instantly convey its athletics. Its style speaks to its substance, with fluid lines and a solid stance. Can a car be so completely new while advancing the role of an icon? Like no other car, an SL can.
The soft top raised, and lowered
The SL's triple-layer power soft top is more than an exquisitely tailored triumph of style. It eliminates nearly 23 kg where it can have the greatest effect on lowering the car's centre of gravity. In 15 seconds, it Z-folds to form its own rear deck. All while taking up less trunk space than a folding hardtop.
2+2 seating, unequaled comfort
A new 2+2 seating configuration adds up to versatility and luxury unmatched by previous SL cabins. The multicontour front seats feature power adjustment, heating, ventilation, and active massage programs. AIRSCARF neck warming helps lengthen the top-down driving season. All standard.
Digital sensibility, analogue sensuality
The SL's "hyper-analogue" cockpit elevates a tradition of rich materials and sculptural design within a highly digital environment. A reconfigurable instrument panel is set into a classic gauge visor. The dash flows into the doors and console. Every sense finds a connection.
Style all its own, and totally yours
Richly appointed and outfitted, an enticing option menu lets you make your SL truly your own: A dozen paint colours. Four 21-inch wheel designs. And styling accents in sparkling chrome, sultry black or serious carbon fibre.
