The SL65 AMG is a truly amazing car with huge power and a massive engine — and today I’m reviewing it. First I’ll show you all the quirks and features of the SL65 AMG, and I’ll show you all around it — then I’ll drive the SL65 AMG and show you what it’s like behind the wheel of this V12 monster.

As with the SLS AMG super sports car, the use of an all-aluminium bodyshell results in a drastic reduction in weight.
The new SL 65 AMG is some 170 kilograms lighter than before. The expressive front section is dominated by the new “twin blade” radiator grille and the front apron’s lower cross strut in high-sheen chrome.The car is powered by a twin-turbocharged V12 engine with 621bhp and, wait for it, 737lb ft of torque.
Inside, too, the SL 65 AMG has exclusive design and equipment features which differentiate it from its eight-cylinder sister model. The electrically adjustable AMG sports seats with single or two-tone upholstery in Exclusive nappa leather with a special AMG diamond pattern are a particular highlight.
