2009 Mercedes-Benz SL63

The new Mercedes -Benz SL63 replaces our favorite roadster the SL55, now without a supercharger we have a 6.2 liter V8, that produces 518 horsepower and 738 torque. The styling has gone in a good direction although the rear still looks the same. The exterior now has more deep vents, a wider grill and an AMG body kit. One of the best features is that you can have a convertible from a coupe in 16 seconds, meaning your hard top can come down with a touch of a button. At the heart of the new AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed sports transmission is a new start-up clutch, which runs in an oil bath and replaces a conventional torque converter. Fit with four modes " C" for comfort, "S" for sport, "S+" for Sport Plus and "M" for manual. Again Mercedes-Benz provides us with super car, with the features of an S class.
