There’s no denying the SL has gained significant horsepower and impressive technology through the years, but that evolution didn’t come without a price – literally and figuratively. A new AMG SL 63 has a starting cost of £116,260 and can tip the scales at over 1,800 kg. It’s not the lightweight sports car it once was, but that doesn’t mean it’s less capable.

The technology that adds weight also commands the active suspension to deliver a firm, planted ride when you want it and softer accommodations for touring. Suave accommodations are as luxurious as ever. And with the AMG SL 63 offering 577 horsepower, neck-snapping acceleration is available at the twitch of your foot. Honestly, we can’t wait to see what Mercedes has in store for the next-generation.
