    Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    The SL 63 AMG is going to be

    Quote:
    The SL 63, replacing the SL 55, will get a 525 hp V8 with 630 Nm of torque. Coupled with AMG's seven-speed "SPEEDSHIFT MCT" gearbox, these latest AMG beasts should offer true 'Fahrspaß.'



    But of course there are no pics of the front just yet.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Thanks once again for the heads up. IMO, the design modifcation of the rear, is definitely not an improvement. But maybe I'll need to see it in real life.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    I'm more interested in the mechanical upgrades

    Thanks again Temm for posting

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    SPEEDSHIFT MCT = Deual clutch transmission*hopefully*

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    New SL63 is equiped with 7Speed AMG Automatic gearbox with new programms. 030 Performance Package with LSD is optional as is 300km/h limiter.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Look again at that picture.

    aerodynamic enhancements! Some subtle some not!

    I bet it will be a nice car.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    I didn't know AMG sourced its wheels from PAG .

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    The 997tt rims are also what strucked me first.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    It looks very now, with straighter lines, but will date more quickly than the current shape.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    i like the current one more and looking at the specs i still consider mercs far too heavy...2tons...ehhhh

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    It just seems to me a SLK scaled up a bit.
    I'm the only one thinking this way?

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser


    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    that is one ugly *********** !!

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    If you cover-up the turn signal light on the headlamp you get VW Phaeton headlights.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Those new headlamps look like they came from the new Cayenne I loved the original SL headlamps. They got it right the first time. Now it's been spoilt

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser



    In this pic the car looks just awful.

    The whole front seems out of proportion because of the new grill and headlights.

    Look at the bright side. Anyone with a pre-facelift SL will face a much lower drop in car value than otherwise .

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Yes of course.
    The old model will retain it's value a hell of a lot

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Looks like Merc is taking design ideas from Cadillac now, this looks quite a bit like the XLR.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    It looks also they are copying BMW with 5-series like concept headlamps

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser











    Interior-Barbara Bush style...


    I fully agree with Rossi-awfull, simply awfull...

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Oh, the horror...

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Hm, I thought Merc was on a good way again with S/CL/C class... then the GLK came, and now, erm, this...?

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Please guys remember something: the old chief of style, a guy i know because of friends, left the company last year to start his own business.
    He was the father of the old SL/S class and CL was his last creation.

    I think that letting him go they made the wrong move....

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    I can really say, looking through these pictures, that i really don't like the car.
    It looks a mess IMHO
