2005 Mercedes SL65 AMG
Black leather interior
The SL 65 AMG is now even more sporty and exclusive. Outstanding high-performance AMG Roadsters have made further substantial gains in terms of technology, design and appointments and now offer an even more unique driving experience. Enhanced AMG sports suspension based on second-generation Active Body Control, more direct steering and new AMG high-performance brakes the two-seater makes for spectacular handling dynamics. Meticulous attention to detail is also a feature of the new-look body and interior.
The driving force behind the Mercedes SL 65 AMG is the extremely powerful AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine developing 612 hp and a maximum torque of 737.7 lbs-ft, making this still the most powerful production Roadster in the world. Impressive evidence of the phenomenal power harnessed by the AMG twelve-cylinder unit is provided by the 0-62 mph acceleration time of just 4.2 seconds. Again, the top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
The SL underwent a facelift in 2006, and was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
Changes include new engines for SL 350 and SL 500 (called SL 550 in North America), with improved performance on SL 55 AMG and SL 600, as well as a new top-of-the-line SL 65 AMG. ABC (Active Body Control) was improved to reduce body movements in dynamic driving by up to 60%, standard on all models except the SL 350. The new engines were mated to a new 7-speed 7G-Tronic automatic, with a Sport option to allow shifting to be performed up to 30% faster in manual “M” mode, and with added steering-wheel shift paddles.
Exterior styling changes include a new bumper with three large cooling air intakes and a more pronounced V-shape as well as fog lamps with chrome surrounds, new light-alloy wheels, new rear light. Interior changes include softer leather upholstery, new interior colours, high-quality metal door sills with Mercedes-Benz lettering and embossed aluminium trim elements, removable luggage cover, optional remote boot-lid release. The roof opening mechanism was also revised, reducing the opening time from 20 seconds to 16 seconds.
This is a genuine example offered at a very reasonable price, compared to others on the market considering the low milage.
