Mercedes-Benz launched a new and improved SL 65 V12 roadster last year, achieving a 17 per cent rise in fuel efficiency and all of the enhancements you’d expect from a car costing just under £170,000.
Providing an exceptional driving experience, trademark style and improved fuel efficiency – thanks to its intelligent lightweight all-aluminium bodyshell, AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission and the ECO start/stop-function – the SL 65 AMG has set a benchmark for 12-cylinder petrol engines.
Stunning acceleration – the six-litre biturbo engine takes you to 62 mph in just four seconds, while in just under 12 seconds you hit the 125 mph mark – coupled with the AMG V12 sound, makes the SL 65 AMG ooze with style and superiority.
