2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary
Press Release) The new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG "45th
ANNIVERSARY": 45 years of AMG - Marking the anniversary with
high-performance and style
"To mark AMG's 45th birthday we are presenting the SL 65 AMG "45th ANNIVERSARY" – a very special anniversary model in a limited edition of 45 vehicles. The superior V12 roadster with exclusive appointments embodies our brand claim "Driving Performance" to perfection", says Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The designers have created a new paint finish exclusively for the SL 65 AMG "45th ANNIVERSARY": designo magno graphite. This grey colour with its satin look further highlights the V12 roadster's supremely powerful character. The matt finish brings out the contours of the aluminium body in particularly striking guise. Highlights in the form of high-gloss chrome applications add interesting contrasts.
Such highlights include the new "twin-blade" radiator grille with blade-like slats, the surround for the AMG-specific LED daytime driving lights and the fins on the wings and the hood, for example.
Exterior Carbon-Fibre package in matt finish
The Exterior Carbon-Fibre package in matt finish is exclusive to the SL 65 AMG "45th ANNIVERSARY". The cross strut in the front apron, the exterior mirrors and the spoiler lip are produced in genuine carbon fibre with a satin finish. The AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine features the same look: the high-quality engine cover consists of matt carbon fibre and aluminium.
The AMG sports exhaust system provides for a characteristic engine sound. The outer surround of the twin tailpipe comes in black with chrome plating, while the inner insert is finished in high-gloss chrome. The AMG multi-spoke forged wheels painted in titanium grey with high-sheen rim flange and matt finish round off the appearance to perfection. The light-alloy wheels from the AMG Performance Studio are fitted with tyres in size 255/35 R 19 at the front and 285/30 R 20 at the rear.
Exquisitely designed interior with full range of appointments
The interior design of the SL 65 AMG "45th ANNIVERSARY" has been carefully coordinated with the special designo magno graphite paint finish: sitting in the highly exclusive AMG V12 roadster, one is surrounded by a composition of exquisite materials and exceptional workmanship combined with a comprehensive scope of standard-fit appointments.
A defining stylistic
element is the upholstery in designo Exclusive STYLE leather in
titanium grey pearl/ginger beige. The distinctive upholstery
featuring the AMG-specific V12 layout with a diamond pattern adorns
both the electrically adjustable AMG sports seats and the door
centre panels. Embossed AMG emblems on the seat backrests exude the
same class as the designo nappa leather roof lining in ginger beige
featuring special stitching details in AMG V12 diamond pattern.
AMG Performance Media
with telemetry function is additionally available from the AMG
Performance Studio as an optional extra
