Mercedes-Benz SL55 details:
The improved AMG 5. 5-litre V8 supercharged motor at the heart of the Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG is equipped with a new, higher-speed supercharger compressor and a larger throttle valve to optimise the fresh-air supply. additionally, the installation of an even more efficient motor management unit has boosted the output of the AMG V8 powerplant from 368 Kw/500 hp to 380 Kw/517 hp, while the peak torque has been increased from 700 to 720 Nm. The new Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4. 5 seconds (outgoing model: 4. 7 seconds) and goes on to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The driving force behind the SL 65 AMG is the extremely comprehensive AMG 6. 0-litre V12 biturbo motor developing 450 Kw/612 hp and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm, making this still the most comprehensive production Roadster in the world. Cool evidence of the phenomenal performance harnessed by the AMG twelve-cylinder unit is offered by the 0-100 km/h acceleration time of just 4. 2 seconds. Again the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.
Both AMG Roadsters option modified AMG sports suspension based on second-generation Active Body Control, specific measures having been implemented to reduce body movements in dynamic driving situations - to levels even lower than those achieved by the outgoing models - without impairing the impressive ride convenience. Greater agility comes courtesy of the improved front-axle elastokinematics and the speed-sensitive performance steering with a more direct ratio and new valve control logic.
