2018 Mercedes-AMG SL63
16 mpg city / 25 mpg hwy / 19 mpg combined
For more than 60 years, the Mercedes-Benz SL roadster has been one of the most admired and sought-after convertibles on the road, and today’s high-performance Mercedes-AMG versions push the SL straight into supercar territory. The Mercedes-AMG SL63 is powered by a hand-built 5.5-liter AMG biturbo V8 producing 577 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque combined with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission. The AMG SL63 will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds with top track speed limited to 186 mph. Remarkably, the AMG SL65 will cruise at 25 mpg on the highway. At the top of the line is the AMG SL65, powered by a hand-built 6.0-liter AMG biturbo V12 that produces 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, but it doesn’t quite make the cut at 22 mph highway.
