One of Mercedes-Benz’s most opulent and long-standing series, the SL-Cass is 65 years old in 2019. With its distinctive sleek, drawn-out looks, it’s one car that has always had an immediate presence on the road, but even today that remains an understatement. Now, in the AMG SL 63, add in a slathering of chrome and black details around the wheels, front splitter, air intakes, rear apron and sports exhaust to name but a few of the visual tweaks. Prestige is conveyed in every facet within the cabin, from the layout to choice of materials like supple Nappa leather, and everything else in between. A 5.5L twin turbocharged V8 engine is responsible for hurling the SL-Class around with colossal power. The AMG tuned variant goes one step further, building on an already impressive sports dynamic you find in the standard version, while also ensuring performance brakes are built to go the distance. Sitting close to the ground you will have an extraordinary grasp on the dynamics of the car. With a deft seven-speed AMG sports transmission there to lend support, the AMG SL 63 feels as though it’s measured in everything it does. But even then, that won’t prepare you for 430kW and 900Nm of sharp acceleration and responsive steering. Thankfully, motorists have every bit of control through a variety of configurable driving modes, ensuring your comfort can be addressed at all times. From an amenity perspective, that glorious retractable roof is a godsend on a perfect summer’s day, although you still also have at your disposal plenty in the way of technology that upholds leading safety and entertainment standards. The SL-Class continues to attest itself as a convertible with a history of success.
