Geneva 2008: The new Mercedes Benz SL 63 AMG |

The Mercedes Benz stand at the Geneva Motor Show was pretty impressive, with four world premieres, the updated CLS and SLK, the new CLC and, maybe the most impressive, the new Mercedes SL 63 AMG facelift. The car will replace the current SL 55 AMG and will feature new bodykit, darkened headlamps and tail-lights and new 19-inch alloy wheels.

Under the hood, as its name suggest, there’ll be a 6.3 liter V8 engine which develops 525 hp and 630 Nm of torque, slightly more than the current 5.5 liter V8 on the SL 55 AMG which has 517 HP and 720 Nm. And you’re probably be amazed, but the SL 63 AMG will be slower than the current SL 55 AMG, going from 0 to 62 mph (100km/h) in 4.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds slower than the SL 55 AMG. The engine will be mated to a MCT 7-speed sports transmission and the car will also feature new sports suspension and a new speed sensitive steering wheel system, plus a new 3-stage ESP system (ON/SPORT/OFF).
