AMG 6.0-Liter-V12-Biturbo Engine.
The AMG 6.0-Liter V12 biturbo engine boasts superior performance, generating 463 kW (630 hp) and 1000 Nm from 2300 - 4300 rpm. This accelerates the Mercedes-AMG SL 65 from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds and drives it to a top speed of electronically limited 250 km/h. Or to remarkable 300 km/h if the optional AMG Driver’s Package is chosen. Thanks to the design, vibrations generated by piston movements are almost completely avoided — in conjunction with the multi-spark ignition, this results in unparalleled smooth running.
- Aluminum crank case produced using diecast aluminum and aluminum crank case with low-friction Silitec cylinder barrels;
- Forged crankshaft featuring maximum strength;
- Port injection (mixture formation in the intake manifold) and three valves per cylinder;
- Biturbocharging with charge pressure of up to 1.5 bar;
- Both turbochargers are coolant cooled and feature particularly large spiral cross-sections — excellent response from low engine speeds;
- Multi-spark ignition with 12 dual-ignition coils — this achieves effective combustion in conjunction with more efficient engine management.
AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC.
With 7 gears, 4 transmission modes and automatic double-declutching function, this transmission based on 7G-TRONIC PLUS enables both an extremely sporty and fuel-efficient driving style. Depending on the preferred driving style, the driver has a choice between an efficient and comfortable style in transmission mode “C” (Comfort), a brisk and sporty style in “S” (Sport) and “S+” (Sport Plus) or manual style in “M.” A modified accelerator pedal curve and more direct throttle response result in even more agility and driving pleasure in the "S," "S+" and "M" modes. The automatic double-declutching function provides for a more emotionally appealing experience and minimizes load cycles, which has a particularly positive effect when braking into bends and improves handling safety on wet and slippery surfaces. Drive mode "C" allows comfortable driving at low engine speeds. At the same time the ECO Start/Stop function is available.
AMG SPORT SUSPENSION.
The AMG sport suspension combines superb agility and stability with the ride comfort that is the hallmark of Mercedes-Benz. The steering knuckles and spring links of the 4-link front axle are made out of aluminum, as are virtually all the suspension parts of the multi-link independent rear suspension. The reduction in the unsprung masses benefits not only the agility of the vehicle but also the response of the spring and damper elements. At the touch of a button it is possible to select either a more obviously sporty characteristic curve with reduced roll angles and firmer body damping ("Sport"), or a more comfort-oriented setting for exceptional comfort on long journeys ("Comfort"). Added agility and faster speeds when cornering are possible thanks to the AMG sports suspension's negative camber all around and completely revised elastokinematics.
AMG Rear-Axle Limited-Slip Differential.
The mechanically controlled AMG rear-axle limited-slip differential provides improved traction in every driving situation, especially when the driver adopts a sporty driving style. This is done by reducing the slip on the inside driven wheel.
In contrast to a conventional differential, the AMG rear-axle limited-slip differential uses multi-disc clutches and two thrust rings. If a difference in the rotational speed of the driven wheels arises, the clutch redistributes the drive torque to the wheel with the better traction and avoids spinning of the inside driven wheel.
The advantages are perfect traction when accelerating from a standstill, stabilization of the vehicle when braking and at high speed and earlier acceleration out of bends.
A comfortable, sporty, highly sporty or completely individual suspension setting can be called up by turning the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller in the center console. With the selected transmission mode, parameters such as the characteristics of engine, transmission and steering are also changed. High agility and dynamism are provided by the "Sport" transmission mode, which features more direct steering characteristics, sporty, firm suspension tuning and also modified shift points. The element of sportiness can be enhanced even further in the "Sport Plus" transmission mode. In this case, the suspension and drive system are even more dynamically tuned. The ECO Start/Stop function is deactivated. The "RACE" transmission mode is designed for race track performance. It impresses with optimum sportiness in terms of response, engine rpm and shift times. The "Individual" transmission mode enables the drivers to adjust the various parameters – from the steering and drive system to the suspension – to suit their own requirements.
