New SL 63 AMG roadster: reduced weight and consumption.

25 February 2012, Elie Aoun: German premium auto maker Mercedes-Benz will launch this May the high-performance version of its new SL roadster, the SL 63 AMG, from 157,675 (German prices, incl. 19% VAT), and 189,269 for the "Edition 1" version.

For comparison purposes, the SL 500 price starts from 117,096.

Thanks to its lightweight construction with an all-aluminium body shell (similar to that of the SLS AMG super sports car) and other measures, the weight of the new SL 63 AMG has been reduced by 125 kilograms (276 lb), contributing to a 30 percent reduction in fuel consumption and emissions for the vehicle which is 4612mm long, 1877mm wide (2099mm with the mirrors), 1316mm high, with a wheelbase of 2585mm.

The German brand says that for the SL model alone, over 26,500 SL AMG units with eight-cylinder engines were sold in the past ten years, including almost 5000 SL 63 AMG models with eight-cylinder naturally aspirated engines (2008 to 2011), and over 21,500 supercharged V8 SL 55 AMG between 2001 and 2007.
