2013 Mercedes Benz Sl63 Amg
Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG
The arrange is set for the new Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG. The new reading of the high-performance Two-seater impresses on various counts: taxonomical jackanapes building, a encouragement in outturn and impulsive kinetics, and 30 percentage lour fire expenditure and emissions. Thanks to an all-aluminium bodyshell, alike thereto of the SLS AMG swallow sports car, the fomite burthen has been rock-bottom by 125 kilograms. With a curb burden of 1845 kilograms and an yield of 395 kW (537 hp) or 415 kW (564 hp), the new exemplar has the double-dyed formula for unequaled heartiness and a ranking drive see. A boost encourage in execution comes courtesy of a victorious combining: enhanced AMG sports abeyance based on Combat-ready Torso Controller (ABC), new AMG speed-sensitive sports direction, the AMG high-performance heighten brakes and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmittance. An beguiling mix of fashionable excogitation, encompassing criterion equipment and a heights rubber degree.
Ola Källenius, CEO at Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “The new SL63 AMG is yet another chef-d’oeuvre from Mercedes-AMG. Be it impulsive kinetics, whippersnapper twist or efficiency – the SL63 AMG represents a hulk bound forwards. Next on from the SLS AMG Roadster and the SLK55 AMG, it now makes our unmatched runabout category much discharge.”
2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG
Superscript execution and gamey efficiency: the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG is uncommitted with a alternative of two ability outputs first. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 ‘biturbo’ (twin-turbocharged) locomotive delivers 395 kW (537 hp) and 800 Nm of torsion. If the AMG Execution bundle is specified, these figures ascent to 415 kW (564 hp) and 900 Nm – more superpower than any otc contender therein section. The solvent is high-calibre operation, as underlined by the speedup from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 or 4.2 seconds, and to 200 km/h in 12.9 or 12.6 seconds severally. Top amphetamine is 250 km/h (electronically express), although this rises to 300 km/h (besides electronically express) with the AMG Functioning parcel aboard. NEDC combined intake comes in at 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres for both powerfulness outputs – a total 4.2 litres or 30 pct frown than for the forthcoming modeling.
The eight-cylinder powerplant with the abbreviation M 157 features a compounding of groundbreaking hi-tech components for gamey ability turnout, and it delivers admonitory, low fire usance. In summation to spray-guided orchestrate gas shot, the locomotive boasts an all-aluminium crankcase, similitude turbochargers, 4 valves per cylinder with camshaft accommodation, air/irrigate intercooling, alternator direction and an ECO starting/blockage office. The weight-optimised AMG sports exhaust with two chromed mate tailpipes produces a classifiable locomotive vocalize.
Design and equipment: New AMG brand face
The top-of-the-range AMG manakin is again playacting a starring use – this meter in damage of invention. The SL63 AMG is the kickoff high-performance simulation to characteristic the new stain aspect. The two elements which command the cast – the grille and the frown chilling air ingestion – are maintained but in reinterpreted manakin which gives them a more typical individuality in footing of vigor and the feel of sensed valuate they get. The exchange styling sport is the new “counterpart vane” grille in smooth-spoken chromium-plate. The Mercedes champion is mounted on two blade-like louvres whose visibility recalls that of an aircraft backstage. The more marked V-shape of the grille optimises the longitudinal proportions of the fomite so adds tied greater optical vehemence to the attributes of aeromechanics and purism.
Beneath the grille with its duplicate blades, the conventionalized “A” – a feature characteristic of AMG vehicles – is maintained. A gap formed beneath a o.k. melanise fin at the lour bound of the chilling air gap allows optimal airflow ended the chilling modules – a everlasting combining of esthetics and gamey engineering. The glower hybridizing cock in the strawman proscenium is besides ruined in facile chromium-plate and is apt a sensed sentience of deepness by the gap supra it – a classifiable bill which adds the arrant copestone to the breast of the fomite. The “mate sword” grille and frown hybridisation ruffle are the two completing styling elements which emphasize the new AMG steel brass – a face which leave be picked up by the styling of succeeding AMG models then boost step-up the realization appraise of the AMG operation steel.
AMG bodystyling with characteristic features
The SL63 AMG boasts hellenic sports car proportions: the farsighted hood, covenant rider compartment set good rachis, and the sinewy back are all combined skillfully with the feature AMG bodystyling features. These admit the strawman forestage with inkiness grilles and expectant openings for locomotive oil, h2o, care air and transmitting oil coolers, the face chick pane and the exciting visibility of the diffuser-style ass forestage with body-coloured inset. The standard-specification ILS headlamps are characterised by rattling high-quality tubes for the low and independent irradiation which get been styled with gravid care to point, asset a chromium-plate bracket encompassing the briny headlight and the flared organisation of the index lamps and sidelights. All of the encourage functions sport LED engineering – such as the distinctively curving sidelights. The surrounds of the extra AMG day impulsive lights, the position fins on the wings and the fins on the cowl birth the like silver-chrome conclusion as the grille and the lour swagger in the movement forestage.
The english visibility is henpecked by the “V8 BITURBO” logos and the ti grey-painted 5-twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with high-sheen goal. The presence axle is fitted with 255/35 R 19 tyres on 9.0 x 19 rims, spell the back has 285/30 R 19 tyres on 10 x 19 rims. A foreground at the backside is the AMG sports exhaust, with its two chromed pair tailpipes unified into the bumper. The AMG despoiler lip helps to concentrate raise on the backside axle spell increasing impulsive constancy at high-pitched speeds.
Exceptional quality of interior finish
The inside of the SL63 AMG is characterised by the distinctive wrap-around consequence, as already featured in the CLS 63 AMG: in coincidence with the beltlines on the doors and the packet ledge, the speed segment of the splasher creates a courtly oneness. The generous come of blank, high-quality materials, heights smell of sensed evaluate and fondly crafted details displaying real and seeable preciseness all exudate a sensation of ultimate lineament. Minimum gap dimensions delight the eye and ponder the high-pitched preciseness with which the SL has been produced.
A joy for all of the senses: this comes courtesy of the particular manner elements, companion from the SLS AMG, such as the quatern air vents in the fashion of jet engines, the AMG Thrust Whole – undivided to AMG – and the leather-clad E-SELECT picker pry with raised AMG badge. To the left-hand of the picker jimmy are iii buttons: the movement push operates the 3-stage ESP® organization, the core release controls the AMG sports hiatus based on Combat-ready Consistence Ascendence, piece the behind push with the AMG symbolisation is victimised to fund personal settings (contagion modality, abatement modality, ESP® purpose). Pressure concisely on the AMG release enables the shape options to be called up, piece keeping pile the clitoris yearner allows the coveted apparatus to be elect, as confirmed by way of an hearable signalise. In plus, pressure a clitoris at any sentence besides displays the elect apparatus in the pawn bunch.
AMG main menu and AMG Performance steering wheel
Two tubular rung cockpit instruments allow info on locomotive rpm and tankful capacitance (remaining), and route swiftness and coolant temperature (correct). Cubic gradational rings, back-lit dials in the kernel of the speedometer and rev tabulator, AMG-specific red dials and the 360 km/h speedometer scurf all add to the excited prayer. The driver is greeted by an AMG start-up screenland which appears in the centrally situated cubic TFT coloring presentation. The AMG master carte is likewise structured into the primal presentation: leash modes of “Warm”, “Order” and “Run” supply the driver with comp info. “Warm” displays the locomotive oil and coolant temperatures also as the operational condition of the ECO commencement/blockage routine; “Rig” provides entropy on the stream ESP® fashion, dangling way and the transmittal modes “C”, “S”, “S+” or “M”. In “Airstream” way, the RACETIMER becomes usable. The driver can use this to immortalize lap multiplication on a closed-off circuit. The paraphernalia expose is set supra the primal expose.
A optical and tactual spotlight of the inside of the SL63 AMG is the new AMG Functioning wheel: especially wrought bag areas ruined in pierced leather, jointly planate top and behind sections, service to guarantee hone ascendence of the fomite. Al shifting paddles enable manual shift. The merchantman end of the galvanised spokes features an AMG logotype first. The airbag screening, which has a cubic cast, is ruined in nappa leather. 12 use buttons appropriate the sound and seafaring scheme, the driver assist systems, the on-board calculator and the AMG primary carte to be controlled.
Optional nappa leather in four different colours
Fantabulous comforter on yearn journeys and heights levels of sidelong accompaniment get courtesy of the electrically-adjustable AMG sports seating. They not but have a clear-cut V8 buns upholstery layout and AMG badges on the bottom backrests, but likewise 4-way lumbar documentation, storage office, bum warming and a multicontour routine: this allows the buns buffer duration and english pad reenforcement to be familiarized. The nappa leather upholstery covers the armrests in the doors and core solace, and includes sewing and edging in contrastive colors. Optional colors ambit from lightlessness, porcelain and Bengal red, to peppiness ecru/espresso brownish. For an fifty-fifty higher caliber ambiance, Single nappa leather is likewise usable as an selection: it includes a nappa leather coating on the splasher, threshold paneling, back compartment pane and portion ledge. Contrastive sewing and a cap liner, including A/C pillars ruined in DINAMICA microfibre are likewise included.
The measure ambient ignition bathes the midland in a pleasant collateral spark. Tercet colors (SOLAR, SOLAR red and SOLAR orangeness) are useable to opt from. The fiber-optic cables oblation deuce-ace colouration options are fitted on a layer ‘tween the beltline and threshold kernel venire, about on the integral duration of the doors, backside the trimness for the splashboard and in the strawman paneling. An sole foreground reserved for the SL63 AMG is the AMG-specific linear time, situated centrally on the fascia and featuring an IWC invention.
The criterion equipment on the SL63 AMG includes AMG carbon-fibre trimness, which affords the inside an sympathetic motorsport flavor. Optionally useable at no excess toll are aluminum shave elements with a iniquity or twinkle longitudinal-grain, and besides solicit trims in high-gloss nigrify ash, light-brown satin or high-gloss embrown finishes.

A comp grasp of attractive optional extras is too useable for the SL63 AMG (excerpt):
Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG high-end surround sound system
An attractive spotlight among the optional extras for the SL63 AMG is the Bam & Olufsen BeoSound AMG high-end fence vocalise organization, as base on the SLS AMG: Mercedes-Benz and AMG bear created it in coincidence with celebrated Danish sound specialists Bam & Olufsen. The vocalize organisation enables an sole euphony receive to be enjoyed at the selfsame highest grade. The base of the arrangement is formed not just by the amplifier with a totality yield of 900 watts and 12 high-end loudspeakers including Frontbass, but besides the accurate dispersion of the euphony signals, controlled by the strait cpu, to the selectable seats positions of driver, breast rider or the primal billet.
Thanks to the digital vocalise mainframe (DSP), it is likewise potential to select betwixt the high-end “denotation” studio strait and roomy surroundings voice. All of the functions are operated exploitation the COMAND arrangement via a especial Strike & Olufsen card. Specific highlights admit the well-lighted lense tweeters on the splashboard – they assistance to make the feature practical fathom stagecoach ahead of the fomite occupants. High-quality al speaker covers ruined in flatware chromium-plate with the Smash & Olufsen logotype commit an denotation of the particular berth enjoyed by this high-end arrangement.
Engine and power transmission: Dynamism, performance and efficiency
Operation and fire phthisis, index deliverance and release emissions, locomotive vocalize and feature Mercedes dependability – the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive in the new SL63 AMG meets the widest multifariousness of requirements altogether areas. This is made potential thanks to a compounding of groundbreaking hi-tech systems such as engineer gas shot, pair turbochargers with air/piddle intercooling and the ECO jump/layover procedure.
The eight-cylinder locomotive develops uttermost superpower of 395 kW (537 hp) and maximal torsion of 800 Nm. First the Operation packet is besides uncommitted for the SL63 AMG, which increases the values to 415 kW (564 hp) and 900 Nm. As a resolution the new AMG Two-seater offers more ability than any of its competitors therein section. The discrepancy with the AMG Execution packet besides boasts increased care coerce which has been pushed from 1.0 to 1.3 bar, and a high-quality existent carbon-fibre locomotive masking, among early features.
A glance at the operation underlines the surpassing crusade kinetics: the SL63 AMG accelerates from aught to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds – with the AMG Operation software this number drops to 4.2 seconds – spell the top fastness is 250 and 300 km/h (electronically circumscribed) severally. A clincher for the powerfulness pitch is the unsubtle torsion cut: a unceasing 800 Nm of torsion are uncommitted ‘tween 2000 and 4500 rpm. With the AMG Operation parcel, as practically as 900 Nm can be called upon ‘tween 2250 and 3750 rpm. The telling characteristics of the eight-cylinder biturbo locomotive pass worthy for all drive styles: whether complemental high-velocity laps on a closed-off circuit, drive drawn-out stretches on the freeway or enjoying cruising on picturesque commonwealth roadstead with the vario-roof outdoors – the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive is the rattling example of casual transcendency and excited appealingness. The feature AMG eight-cylinder vocalize emanating from the two chromed similitude tailpipes of the weight-optimised AMG sports exhaust too has tremendous possible to shake.
Enhanced performance and torque, reduced consumption
Spell yield and torsion birth been increased compared with the premature AMG 6.3-litre V8 course aspirated locomotive (386 kW and 630 Nm), fire phthisis has been importantly decreased: the SL63 AMG consumes 9.9 litres per 100 km (NEDC combined, 231 g CO2/km) and intrinsically ranks at the top of its section. The diminution of 4.2 litres compared with the precursor equates to a step-down of 30 pct. Both powerfulness variants bear selfsame phthisis figures.
A paragon of efficiency: the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine
The key to this functioning is the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive, designated as the M 157, which premiered in 2010 in the S 63 AMG and CL 63 AMG. It has besides been the dynamical thrust buns the E 63 AMG and CLS 63 AMG. The M 157 is a nonpareil of efficiency and boasts a wealthiness of technical highlights. On chronicle of higher thermodynamical efficiency, the combining of pair turbochargers, mastermind gasoline shot and spray-guided burning allows amend fire thriftiness and results in lour eject emissions. An galvanising low-pressure heart sends the fire from the tankful to a hard-hitting ticker in the locomotive compartment at a press of 6 bar. The insistency of the fire in the hard-hitting fulminate is amply varying on postulate ‘tween 100 and 200 bar, ensuring spry reception in any impulsive billet.
Promote highlights of the innovational and unequalled eight-cylinder powerplant from Affalterbach admit an all-aluminium crankcase, 4 valves per cylinder with camshaft accommodation, air/piss intercooling, alternator direction and the standard-fit ECO startle/blockage routine. Whereas the old AMG 6.3-litre V8 course aspirated locomotive had a supplanting of 6208 cc, the new AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive inevitably equitable 5461 cc.
Two eject gas turbochargers placed future to the cylinder banks add the 8 cylinders with impudent air. At their utmost upper of 185,000 rpm below good lading, the two turbochargers effect 1750 kg of air per hr into the burning chambers. The uttermost guardianship pressing is 1.0 bar, or 1.3 bar if the AMG Functioning box is included. Thanks to their peculiar, press designing – the turbine housings are welded to the release multiply – thither are substantial blank advantages, and the catalytic converters too heat more apace.
The AMG V8 dispenses with the common blow-off valve. This straight solvent has enabled the compressor trapping to be made exceedingly concordat. To insure nimble reactivity with no wait, all the air ducts in the inhalation pamphlet are as short-change as potential. The AMG experts deliver enabled the wastegate valve, which reduces the insistence in the exhaust during disconfirming cargo changes, to be vacuum-controlled via an electropneumatic convertor. This allows dethrottling nether fond oodles, which successively lowers the fire phthisis.
As was already the cause in the AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo locomotive in the SL65 AMG, the eight-cylinder direct-injection whole uses specially effective air/h2o intercooling. The low-temperature tank with its irrigate circulation is accommodated inside the V of the cylinder banks to write infinite. It efficaciously cools refine the inspiration air tight by the turbochargers earlier it enters the burning chambers, and maintains a always depress inlet temperature below wide-cut shipment. The expectant radiator at the car’s forepart ensures outlined chilling of the h2o circulating in the low-temperature lap. Highly brusk charge-air ducting makes for optimal reactivity. The stainless-steel imperativeness pipes for the sassy and tutelage air are produced by the hydroforming treat, birth a paries heaviness of sole 0.8 millimetres and are intentional for selfsame low insistence going.
All-aluminium crankcase with Silitec cylinder liners
The crankcase for the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive is made of diecast al. The low (dry) locomotive weighting of 204 kilograms is the resultant of sturdy whippersnapper building methods and gives the fomite balanced weightiness dispersion. The charge binding for the principal crankshaft bearings, made of gray-haired mould press, is bolted to the crankcase for gamy inflexibility. Cast-in Silitec cylinder liners guarantee that the octad pistons engage with low clash.
Drilled breathing holes in the crankcase track to a higher production and fire savings nether overtone lading: supra the posture blocks thither are lengthwise drilled holes which associate the next crankcase cavities. Commonly the upwards and downwardly motility of the pistons causes air to be strained into and extracted from the cesspool, which leads to increased resistor and consequently a decrease in yield. The breathing holes keep this by ensuring efficient coerce recompense ‘tween the cavities.
The bad crankshaft made of top-grade 38MnS6BY blade admixture (a compounding of the chemic elements mn, s, b and y) rotates in 5 primary bearings, has octet counterweights and has been optimised with prize to torsional rigidness, inactiveness, low rotating people and a foresighted operational aliveness. A two-mass sticky muffler mounted at the strawman faithfully eliminates vibrations. Apiece connecting rod daybook on the crankshaft carries two bad, balmy connecting rods. In the interests of low mechanical detrition and high-pitched clothing immunity, the jackanapes pistons bear a metal tangency open. Pressure-controlled oil-spray nozzles in the crankcase assure that the extremely distressed plunger crowns are expeditiously cooled.
Four-valve technology with variable camshaft adjustment
Double-dyed charging of the burning chambers is ensured by gravid inspiration and expel valves, of which thither are two per cylinder. The expel valves, which are issue to high-pitched thermic heaps, are hole in club to thin burthen and too sodium-cooled. Four-spot smash camshafts control the 32 valves via low-maintenance, low-friction cam following. The unceasingly varying camshaft registration inside a scope of 40 degrees on the aspiration and fumes sides depends on the locomotive lading and locomotive fastness, stellar to owing yield and torsion values. This too results in coherent idleness at a low velocity.
Contingent the locomotive amphetamine, valve convergence can be wide-ranging for the better potential fire/air ply to the burning chambers and effective remotion of the beat gases. The camshaft allowance is carried out electromagnetically via 4 pivoting actuators, and is controlled by the locomotive mastery whole. The camshafts are determined by ternary high-performance dumb irons, which let considerable advantages in disturbance comforter compared to cylinder roll irons.
Innovative oil supply and water cooling
Effective oil speech below all shipment and operational weather is ensured by an oil ticker with an electrically controlled compressing phase. The oil force can be wide-ranging ‘tween 2 and 4 bar, which has advantages in price of detrition and fire ingestion. An descent stagecoach incorporate into the oil heart for the two turbochargers prevents oil from existence entrained into the bearing air and tucker gases, thereby serving to tighten emissions fifty-fifty farther. Both the cesspool and the origin item birth been optimised for uttermost sidelong speedup and effective lubrication. The oil capacitance is 10.5 litres.
The combined piddle/oil cooling is a cagy answer: aft a insensate starting, initially the locomotive oil is fed done the oil/urine rut exchanger. The vantage of this scheme is that the locomotive oil warms up more apace, as the locomotive coolant warms up quicker and the oil is posterior cooled by the coolant. If the chilling operation of the rattling covenant tank is deficient, the catamenia is additionally directed done the outside locomotive oil/air tank by an oil thermoregulator. A selectable pee thermoregulator ensures speedy thaw of the coolant when start the locomotive and impulsive off.
The locomotive coolant is cooled victimisation the effective crossflow rationale. Thither is a transversal flowing of coolant done both the crankcase and the cylinder heads. Extra chilling slots in the cylinder brain tolerate more effective chilling of the burning chambers, which has advantages during burning: it enables earliest kindling timings to be elect without incurring the jeopardy of knock. Enceinte openings in the AMG breast proscenium assistant to check good airflow concluded the piss, locomotive oil, bearing air and transmitting oil coolers.
Alternator management and optimised belt drive
A important donation to the low fire expenditure comes courtesy of the optimised bang thrust, the on-demand mastery of all adjuvant units and pumps, and the alternator direction: whenever the V8 locomotive is on the overflow or when braking, k.e. is victimised to guardianship the bombardment kinda than organism emaciated as oestrus in the common way. Altogether over-the-counter operational modes a combining of electrical-system and alternator direction enables the alternator to be unbroken at a low emf. This reduces the shipment on the locomotive and makes for fire savings of roughly 0.15 litres per 100 kilometres according to the NEDC stock, and capable 0.2 litres per 100 km in metropolis dealings with its shop overproduction and braking phases.
Highly efficient engine electronics for every function
All the locomotive functions are executed and controlled by a especially effective Bosch MED 17.7.3. mastery whole. This state-of-the-art locomotive figurer not alone controls the calculate gas shot, care press, camshaft readjustment and varying oil ply, but too communicates with former onboard mastery units, such as those of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports infection. The microprocessor has more 30,000 unlike parameters and functions stored in its store, and is able-bodied to do capable 260 billion case-by-case operations per indorsement. To slenderize the consignment on the locomotive ascendence whole, the octonary person kindling coils let an entire electronic faculty on apiece cylinder. This ensures a stiff kindling discharge at all locomotive speeds and below all shipment weather. The extremely accurate fire dispersion of the piezo-electric injectors is handled by octonary high-powered production stages.
New catalytic converter housings for low exhaust emissions
Low expel emissions, conformation with country-specific standards, a feature AMG locomotive phone and a weight-optimised innovation – the requirements for the exhaust of the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive were multiply and composite. The SL63 AMG complies with the EU5 emanation standards, and too meets the requirements of the US commercialize (LEV-II received, On-Board Diagnosing II and lambda detector diagnosing).
The turbochargers are welded to the eject manifolds, spell air gap-insulated manifolds with an internal casing mensuration solitary 1.2 millimetres in heaviness countenance a speedy catalytic convertor answer. For efficiency and to spare distance, this construct has a bicycle-built-for-two catalytic convertor trapping on apiece position of the fomite: conterminous to the firewall, two thin-walled ceramic substrates are sorted into apiece lodging. This answer makes the late, extra underbelly catalytic converters unneeded. The two ceramic substrates disagree to see speedy and effective emanation mastery: the breast one is coated with pd, spell the behind one has a bimetallic finish of pd and rh. One lambda detector per row of cylinders is situated ahead of apiece catalytic convertor trapping, and thither is a lambda symptomatic detector ‘tween apiece of the two thin-walled substrates.
AMG sports exhaust system for a characteristic sound signature
The twin-pipe AMG sports exhaust has a piping cross-sectional of 70 millimetres from the manifolds to the ass silencers. Thanks to a especially sound jackanapes designing, it has been potential to relieve 12.3 kg of burden compared with the premature exemplar. The AMG experts achieved this with a unanimous serial of measures:
When scheming the phone, the aim was to make a consummate deduction of sensed zing and the consolation on foresighted journeys that is the earmark of a Mercedes. The finish of the developers was to reach an aroused know when start the locomotive, accelerating and double-declutching, but unobtrusiveness at never-ending speeds. Unpleasant frequencies or monotone noises were eliminated during a serial of tests. The sports exhaust emits a heavy eight-cylinder voice that is distinctive of AMG from the new chromed similitude tailpipes incorporate into the bumper.
Engine production – a tradition of hand-built excellence
Care all former AMG engines, the eight-cylinder biturbo is assembled by paw in the modernistic AMG locomotive store. Highly-qualified technicians meet the M 157 according to the “one man, one locomotive” ism, maintaining the selfsame strictest timber standards. This conscientious charge is authenticated to by the creditworthy orchestrate’s touch on the feature AMG locomotive plateful.
Power transmission: maximum driving pleasure, reduced consumption
Subspecies Starting, double-declutching office, septet gears, four-spot infection modes and ECO starting/stopover office: the exponent contagion of the SL63 AMG combines utmost aroused collection, maximal drive delight and optimal saving. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports contagion excites with a combining of unequaled options.
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports contagion is undivided to Mercedes-AMG and combines the clean, mastermind and spry reactivity of a manual transmittal with the high-pitched levels of puff of an robotic transmittance. MCT stands for Multi-Clutch Engineering and indicates that solitary clasp elements are employed to do gearshifts. A press wet start-up hold, which runs in an oil tub, replaces the formal torsion convertor. Thanks to its low rotational inactivity, the infection responds outright and dynamically without the losings distinctive of a torsion convertor contagion – thereby portion to write fire. The AMG sports transmitting likewise impresses with its low burthen of good 80 kilograms, which has been made potential done the use of whippersnapper mg for the transmittal lodging. Vibrations are efficaciously eliminated by a two-stage tortuousness muffler, with resulting benefits in sensed rider comfortableness.
ECO start/stop function fitted as standard
The ECO startle/closure use fitted as banner is permanently fighting in the consumption-optimised “Controlled Efficiency” (“C”) drive mood. Formerly the driver comes to a stop e.g. at a red stoplight or in a snarl-up, the locomotive is mechanically switched off. Erst the bracken cycle is released or the throttle is downhearted, the locomotive is forthwith restarted and the car is able-bodied to motion off rapidly. Well-informed engineering guarantees a well-situated and contiguous start routine: a crankshaft detector which recognises the focus of revolution registers the resting place of all octonary pistons. For an machinelike locomotive first, the cylinder with the about lucky plunger place receives an injectant of fire into its burning bedchamber.
The locomotive direction ensures that the locomotive is but switched off if sure preconditions are met. The entrant shelling mustiness bear sufficient mission, e.g., and the locomotive mustiness be at the requirement operational temperature for effective emissions ascendancy. The like applies to the national temperature selected by the driver: if this has not yet been reached, the locomotive is not switched off when the car comes to a occlusion. The onboard meshwork direction organisation makes trusted that fighting sound, telephony or television functions are not off-and-on by the ECO first/occlusion procedure.
A jet “ECO” symbolisation shows the driver when the ECO startle/occlusion routine is alive. Should one of the supra criteria be preventing activating of the scheme, this is shown in the primal showing by the content “Starting/layover motionless” and a yellow-bellied “ECO” symbolization. In the more performance-oriented drive modes “S” (Variation), “S+” (Mutation addition) and “M” (Manual), the ECO jump/occlusion purpose is e’er deactivated.
Consumption-optimised Controlled Efficiency (“C”) drive mode
When adapting the MCT sports contagion to the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo locomotive, the AMG engineers nonrecreational particular care to the new impulsive mood Controlled Efficiency (“C”). The stress was on delivering minimal locomotive swiftness in the highest potential gears altogether impulsive situations. When moving off in “C”, the transmitting constantly selects second and shifts emphatically betimes to the adjacent higher gears if the drive manner permits. At 60 km/h e.g., one-sixth train bequeath already be intermeshed – not just up fire phthisis but too randomness levels. Thanks to its hefty, pronto useable torsion eventide at low locomotive speeds, the AMG V8 biturbo whole is utterly idealistic for this dash of drive. Controlled Efficiency likewise substance commodious gearshifts and a “flabby” gas answer set-up for unco placid might transport. The use of a new low-friction oil besides as the execution of encourage elaborate measures in the AMG
SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmittance raise the efficiency and insure an extra decrease in expenditure.
Drive modes “S”, “S+” and “M” for even more driving pleasure and dynamism
In add-on to Controlled Efficiency (“C”), ternary infection modes are useable to encounter the demands of drivers looking a more active bait: in “S” (Mutation) manner, the locomotive and transmittance acquire a lots more nimble lineament. Accelerator movements induction a more organize grip answer, qualification the downshifts more ad-lib. The locomotive speeding is allowed to orbit a higher grade in apiece geartrain, patch the gearshifts in “S” are some 25 pct quicker than in “C”. Turn the orbitual replacement in the AMG Effort Whole a nick boost to the compensate activates “S+” style. “Variation summation” shifts the gears another 25 percentage quicker than in “S”. The like applies to the manual shifting way “M”. In “S+” and “M” modes, gearshifts at entire accelerator yield good 100 milliseconds.
The locomotive direction organization part suppresses cylinders in “S”, “S+” and “M” modes: exactly interrupting lighting and injectant below wide shipment for abbreviated periods leads to evening quicker gearshifts than earlier. The extremely excited vocals are an likable fallout of this lightning-fast treat.
Ultra-fast, unwritten multiple downshifts are another loudly of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmittance. E.g., kickdown allows gearshifts full-strength from 7th fine-tune to 4th paraphernalia, or from one-fifth to irregular. In the “S”, “S+” and “M” impulsive modes the reflex double-declutching routine is participating. Every manual or automatonlike downshift is attended by just metered double-declutching – with increasing chroma from “S” done “S+” to “M”. And this not but adds to the driver’s aroused get: the load-free downshift minimises load-change reactions, which pays especial dividends when braking into aeroembolism – and likewise enhances refuge in the wet or on ice.
No automatic downshifts in manual “M” mode
In manual “M” way the driver likewise benefits from the highschool torsion of the V8 biturbo locomotive, as thither is no robotlike downshift below entire payload and kickdown; the transmitting corpse firmly in the selected paraphernalia. Furthermore, the MCT sports infection does not do an reflexive upshift in manual modality when the rev bound is reached. In “M” fashion the AMG instrumentate flock displays the stream geartrain and alerts the driver visually to the pauperism for an upshift good earlier the goad reaches the red zona. This agency that a peculiarly flashy driver can use the higher-up operation voltage to its fullest extent. When approach the lour rev bound, e.g. when braking the fomite, thither is an reflexive downshift to the following frown paraphernalia.
The sinewy electronic transmitting mastery whole with incorporate 80 MHz c.p.u. controls ad-lib downshifts – say when the driver dead inevitably exponent for dynamical speedup.
AMG DRIVE UNIT with RACE START function
The AMG Ride Whole is the primal ascendance whole for the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmittance and all drive kinetics functions. The electronic circle switching to choose the quadruplet crusade modes, including energizing of the Slipstream Beginning role, is placed backside the E-SELECT chooser prize. Succeeding to this are leash buttons for extra functions: the beginning controls the 3-stage ESP®, the endorsement the AMG sports abatement. The tertiary decorated with AMG inscription is victimised to memory the personal set-up. Concisely pressure the AMG clit brings up the form options, whilst retention devour the release allows you to programme the needful set-ups – this is confirmed by an acoustical betoken. The stream settings may be viewed in the tool flock by pressure the clitoris at any clock.
The Run Commencement office delivers maximal oomph: piece the fomite is at a tie-up, the driver can aerate the ESP® sports use and crush the bracken cycle with their left-hand fundament. Having preselected the Airstream Beginning platform exploitation the roundabout alternate, a substantiation content comes abreast the AMG primal presentation. The driver so only necessarily to reassert the Airstream Startle use by pull the “Up” slip coggle formerly, amply uncheerful the gun and winning their base off the bracken. The optimal start-up locomotive velocity is set full mechanically and the SL63 AMG accelerates off with unflawed grip – clear capable top upper, if so needful. It is not necessity to shimmy up done the gears manually; the AMG infection changes appurtenance with lightning-fast switching multiplication.
Body and lightweight design: Aluminium comes up trumps
Cars are comely progressively safer, more well-fixed, but ofttimes heavier besides. The new Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG not lone boodle this style, it turns it some. In malice of increased solace, functioning and condom, it weighs 125 kilograms less than its precursor.
The greater office of the weight-reduction “dieting” is obscure from the eyes of the beholder of the SL. Below the al outer tegument thither is a bodyshell made about alone from al, alone identical few components existence made from former materials. The fifty-fifty flatboat mg is exploited in share for the masking backside the tankful. The A-pillars and the ceiling anatomy are of sword sail alloy incorporating high-strength brand tube. For these elements sword is the better resolution to supply selection spa for occupants in the upshot of the fomite overturning.
The consistence of the SL is the commencement all-aluminium bodyshell to be produced in expectant serial at Mercedes-Benz. This totally new developing weighs 254 kilograms and is hence 110 kilograms flatboat than a corresponding nerve bodyshell. Encourage broad jackanapes conception features remunerate the extra angle ineluctably caused by the increased consolation, the new help systems and over-the-counter proficient features. The arse contrast is that the new SL63 AMG retains an tremendous angle reward: it weighs 1845 kilograms, patch its herald of the like leaning the scales at 1970 kilograms (all figures are curb weights according to EC).
Bodyshell: converting the intact bodyshell to al cuts its slant by 24 percentage in counterpoint to a nerve bodyshell featuring corresponding properties – a weighting redemptive of 110 kg. Tied the amphetamine threshold hinges comprise of al.
Damping: the substitution from absorber foams to sprayable acoustical compositions with varying stratum thicknesses which can be wrought according to requirements, positive limited underbelly pane, results in a slant rescue in the decree of 2.5 kg.
Guidebook rail for the windowpane facelift mechanisms: these are now comprised of aluminum rather of brand, amounting to a slant deliverance of 0.5 kg.
Vario-roof in mg/shaping pattern: the breast portion of the ceiling and the C-pillar are produced in mg/formative, asset thither are extra optimization measures regarding the invention of the tubelike build, back ledge, bottom windowpane bod and ceiling underframe. The burden redeeming amounts to 15 kg.
Glazing: windshield is 0.5 millimetres dilutant, with an acoustical picture. Slant step-down of complete 1 kg. The back windowpane is 0.7 millimetres diluent. Burthen economy is approx. 1 kg.
Midland: the splashboard wax consists of a uninterrupted IHP (interior hard-hitting forming) al pipe with mg struts and moulded-on polymer brackets. The burthen preservation is 2.2 kg.
With the founding of shift-by-wire engineering, the premature slip jimmy has been replaced by the E-SELECT picker prise in the AMG Crusade Whole. This weighs solitary one one-sixth as often as the result victimized in the past exemplar. The angle preservation is 1.4 kg.
Kick: boot level is in the manikin of a polyurethan honeycomb scale rather of the romance home antecedently victimized. The rider’s pes scale has been switched terminated to moldable from brand, preservation 1.5 kg in burthen.
Seating:new behind construction with new accommodation motors, but standard-fit 4-‑way lumbar reenforcement and cash-responsive caput restraints. Weightiness delivery: 11 kg.
Electrics: thanks to an level-headed active payload direction organization, two heavy batteries are no yearner requisite; one 95 Ah bombardment in boot is sufficient, supported by a 12 Ah shelling for the ECO first/layover purpose. Weightiness redeeming: approx. 4 kg.
Every fomite is minded a customer-specific wiring tackle for the upcountry, cockpit and locomotive compartment. Thanks to this tailored line rein, extra weightiness in the shape of wires which are redundant to requirements can be protected – to the line of capable 0.4 kg.
The modern Frontbass organisation avoids the motivation for a ramify woofer and threshold speaker. Burthen redeeming of complete 4 kg.
Axles: the four-link presence axle had already undergone all-embracing weightiness optimization for the past manakin, featuring guidance knucks and leap links made of al. The two front-axle halves now dwell alone of this cloth. The inbuilt keep bod for the front-axle halves, steerage gearing and locomotive is likewise produced in aluminum. Amount angle savings are 11 kg.
For the roadster the aluminium bodyshell is superior to a steel construction
The developers at Mercedes-Benz did not balance contentedness achieving weighting benefits unequaled. The al construction had to be ranking to a sword expression in footing of rigidness and comforter likewise. In rescript to hit this highschool target, developers systematically went for healthy whippersnapper expression, and explored many new paths to do this. Every ace element of the aluminum bodyshell was specifically optimised for its item purpose and expected lashings. So, divers processes are exploited to brand dissimilar kinds of al contingent the use the element is to lean: the parts are made by frisson cast (metal recyclable molding modeling) or void die cast, worked into extruded al sections or into aluminum plates of thicknesses that diverge inside one and the like factor; these are the alleged made-to-order welded blanks. Uttered in numbers, the bodyshell burden is made up of: 44% roll al, 17% al sections, 28% al canvas alloy, 8% blade and 3% otc.
The parts are assembled victimisation various load-adequate connection methods at the output facilities in Bremen, approximately of which are advanced processes. Fasten joints are ensured, e.g., by MIG (metallic argonon) welding, hemming, soldering, self-piercing rivets, current cakehole bolting, or rubbing hustle welding – a connexion method by which a extremely tolerant weld crinkle is produced by way of rubbing estrus; a method especially well-suited to al on explanation of its low thaw item.
Specific highlights of the bodyshell:
The summation of all the innovation measures leads to a whippersnapper, torsionally and flexurally stiff bodyshell with an optimal inflexibility/weighting proportion. It was potential to addition the bodywork’s torsional inflexibility by more 20 pct concluded the already extremely stiff past modeling serial. This is confirmed by measurements of the new SL’s torsional potency – at 19,400 Nm per point the buggy achieves an right-down top assess (its forerunner already reached 16,400 Nm per stage).
Meeting the highest safety standards
Concurrently the high-strength morphological elements of the aluminum bodyshell shuffle the new SL eventide safer than the past modelling in the issue of a hit. Extrusion-moulded sections, connecting mould nodes and a double-thickness shell base mannikin a rider compartment that is hardly as jackanapes as it is hardy. Two aluminum sections in apiece doorway jointly the face sills (rattling fixed thanks to their intragroup bedchamber construction) and crash-resistant seating offer the sterling potential selection spa in the issue of a english hit.
A forepart distortion district playacting on various levels and in which the al presence axle subframe is incorporate as an extra tertiary longitudinal penis, distributes hit forces to a great region, conducting them preceding the rider compartment. And in the arse, too, thither is sufficient endoergic distortion potentiality. A morphological coop made from chilled mold longitudinal members, transverse sections and a hurl mg tankful interval bulkhead likewise bring to this. This is likewise where the fire tankful is nested in a crash-protected style supra the ass axle. This way all the statutory guard requirements are met also as the fifty-fifty stricter ones from Mercedes-Benz.
Best marks for NVH comfort
Thanks to its forward-looking al bodyshell construct, the new SL is too unequaled among the roadsters in footing of NVH quilt (randomness, shaking, rigourousness). One tributary agent towards its optimal quivering and route bellowing characteristics is a real unbending connectedness betwixt the presence incision and ass storey, allowing restful jaunt fifty-fifty o’er longsighted distances, and simultaneously offer telling impulsive kinetics.
Although aluminum features a higher strait discharge and actinotherapy story than brand, the new SL is the quietest fomite in its grade. Mercedes-Benz compensates for the acoustical disadvantages of al by substance of a logical voice insularism construct with targeted adaption of the audio damping materials to apiece job zona, and done the use of groundbreaking sound-insulation materials:
A encourage share to the full upcountry acoustics is the laminated crank windshield with acoustical picture. The cobwebby, extremely live shoot absorbs the vibrations of the windshield and reduces the detectable phone degree in many oftenness ranges.
The preciseness craft on the acoustics goes so as to assure that the hydraulic ticker for the electrohydraulic vario-roof is encapsulated and decoupled from the bodyshell. In increase to this, a new highly-developed introduce snoot sees thereto that the press impulse in the ticker is rock-bottom to a minimal compensate from the kickoff. This agency that ticker noises are alone scarce hearable for the driver and rider.
Boot lid made of carbon-fibre composite material for the first time
The levelheaded textile mix is realized by boot lid: first in large-scale output, the national documentation is made of whippersnapper carbon-fibre complex stuff. The highly strict carbon-fibre ingredient is bonded to the formative outer plate, resulting in a weightiness preservation of fivesome kilograms compared with a formal charge lid. The advanced solvent is existence put-upon for the really get-go metre in the SL 63. Intrinsically, Mercedes-Benz is systematically chronic with its “AMG Whippersnapper Functioning” scheme, offset presented at the Frankfurt Centrifugal Display in September 2011. The shaping pane allows the aerials for sailing, digital radiocommunication and peregrine telephone to be full incorporated concealed in the bum region, so that the SL63 AMG does not want to admit a galling antenna stamp on its aerodynamically neat torso.
The cowl is made from al, as was that of its herald. It has been optimised in damage of manakin and materials, conducive towards the spectacular earthbound tribute. The doors, too, are of a whippersnapper designing and made from aluminum. They are fashioned from a combining of canvas alloy, extruded sections and casting alloy parts, coupled by divers methods: engrossing, soldering and hemming. Their aluminum and nerve hinges are friction-based and are endlessly adjustable to any coveted lean when open, so that when acquiring into or out of the car they can continue firmly outdoors at any slant permitted by the spa useable at the english. This is peculiarly worthy in cramped parking weather such as in a garfish or park.
Unique item of equipment: MAGIC SKY CONTROL
The proved electrohydraulic vario-roof – which turns the runabout into a unsympathetic putsché with a frozen ceiling in barely a few seconds at the advertize of a push – has been intelligently enhanced, with Mercedes-Benz chronic to gambling the pioneering function hither. For the new SL Mercedes-Benz is for the really low metre oblation drivers the pick betwixt iii variants of the lightweight-construction vario-roof:
The operational rule is based on the physics of a plateful capacitance: if the spyglass construction is subjected to an electric emf, particles in the construction office themselves so that lightness is able-bodied to infiltrate the spyglass. If the potential corpse switched off, nevertheless, the particles spot themselves indiscriminately. This part blocks the igniter, and the meth cadaver nighttime. The ascendence whole and convertor are unified into the strawman subdivision of the ceiling, and the replacement is in the smash command comfort.
In increase to the unequalled bird’s-eye essence and transparentness at the contact of a release, Legerdemain SKY Restraint too provides an ambiance of well-being. UV and infrared are besides efficaciously plugged in crystalline style, patch insularism increases eventide more importantly in the darkened manner, thereby portion to hold the temperature on upcountry parts such as armrests tank by capable ten degrees Celsius compared with established commons meth.
Since the groundbreaking chalk likewise shields against the sun’s rays far more efficaciously than ceremonious thermic insularity methamphetamine or sunblinds, the occupants of the new SL bequeath too delight the highest grade of climatical puff simultaneously. When drive with the cap clear would be unpleasant due to acute hotness, the driver and rider are capable to rest composed below the Illusion SKY Ascendancy ceiling – qualification an authoritative share towards driver-fitness guard, a construct which Mercedes is swell known for promoting. Eve when the fomite is at a deadlock the inner does not overheat, since the ceiling is switched to darkened fashion when powered off.
But Trick SKY Ascendancy not sole benefits the occupants. About of the song is likewise interpreted off the air conditioning, thereby redemptive on CO2 emissions. The underframe of the 3 cap variants is now made of mg. This makes apiece cap round six kilograms barge than in the late manakin, bighearted the car a frown center of soberness, and consequently meliorate nimbleness. The engineers sustain elegant the operational mechanics for the ceiling and bang lid. It now takes less than 20 seconds to outdoors or finale the cap altogether.
Sophisticated corrosion protection concept
The aluminum bodyshell of the new SL offers no detail of tone-beginning for corroding. A advanced open shelter construct ensures the saving of the bright face both of the remote pare and of the bottom of the mainsheet metallic panels, therefore simultaneously protecting the famed dependability and evaluate constancy of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The aegis construct was highly-developed and tried on the cornerstone of the environmental effect in dissimilar clime zones of the reality and the particular lashings the fomite is subjected to.
The instauration for uttermost corroding resistor is formed by corrosion-resistant al alloys and innovation features, piece the few sword fomite components are all amply galvanised. High-quality zn/ni coatings or particular electrochemical detachment measures foreclose liaison erosion with al. All the seams are meticulously plastered, the surfaces saved done cathodic dip ground and multiple coats of rouge. Sectors peculiarly open to corroding are additionally saved with wax, to control that the pristine panorama of the new car is preserved for a years.
Intelligent Light System and LED tail lights as standard
The headlamps on the new SL deliver been enhanced. As function of its touchstone stipulation, the new runabout is weaponed with the Levelheaded Spark Scheme (ILS) featuring bi-xenon headlamps. A impulsive focus index, sidelights and the daylight functional lamps with LED engineering dispatch the Reasoning Lightness Arrangement.
The empennage lights on the new SL welfare from the advantages offered by the LED engineering. LEDs illuminate about 150 milliseconds quicker than established bulbs, summation they suffer a well thirster spirit and preserves stream. In the SL’s stern lights, the LEDs besides clear with differing chroma in a targeted mode in sure sections of the ass lights, contingent the twinkle procedure. This engineering ensures an patent nighttime designing. Back reversing lights and bottom fog lamps are merged into the AMG bottom proscenium featuring a diffusor feel. The thirdly stoplight, which makes use of LED engineering, is situated in boot lid supra the Mercedes adept.
Chassis and braking system: Driving dynamics at the highest level
High-performance ride and mightiness transmitting systems bespeak hi-tech hanging and braking systems. Therein region too the SL63 AMG is capable to execute all of the expectations which are made of it. The feature qualities already precious by customers in the retiring modeling – dynamical manipulation and highschool levels of lightness, combined with the consolation on foresightful journeys distinctive of Mercedes – birth been optimised and graceful flush foster by Mercedes-AMG in the new variant of the high-performance Two-seater.
As with the consistence, the experts from Affalterbach too sour to al for the AMG sports reprieve too. The direction knucks and saltation links on the 4-link figurehead axles are thence likewise made of al, as are most all of the dangling parts on the multi-link mugwump ass hanging. The entire documentation build for the front-axle halves, direction paraphernalia and locomotive is too produced in aluminum. The solvent: the angle savings achieved compared with steady components made of brand assistance to tighten the unsprung mass, which successively results in mensurable and detectable benefits in footing of the reception of the leap and muffler elements also as the lightsomeness. Another substantial foreground is that the SL63 AMG has more blackball bank on both axles also as full revised elastokinematics for a more orchestrate impulsive sentience and higher sidelong speedup. Likewise contributive to this like burden is the cartroad breadth, which is importantly wider than that of the past simulation (forepart axle is 52 mm wider, backside axle 50 mm wider).
Active Body Control optimised for even greater performance
Drive kinetics likewise boast as portion of AMG’s new excogitation. The sports hiatus based on Combat-ready Soundbox Ascendancy (ABC) has semen nether the spot. During the growth and examination form, participating dangling mastery was especially optimised in price of cornering operation. Essentially the ABC hiatus all but totally eliminates the consistency movements that pass when moving off, cornering on spotty route surfaces and braking. Aeroembolism are negotiated with far less bowl; the trunk scroll caused by loyal evasive manoeuvring is efficaciously stifled. The controller elements of this arrangement are the muffler struts, in which a hydraulic servomechanism cylinder is ordered nonparallel with the blade leap. By retracting and extending, this cylinder actively adjusts the duration of the leap and so the springiness effect of the muffler tittup. As a solvent, established torsion-bar stabilisers can be dispensed with on the movement and bum axles.
High-performance controller electronics in perm duologue with the locomotive and transmittal ascendence whole insure that the forces of the quadruplet muffler struts are altered much outright. A new sport is the ocular ABC show in the COMAND organization carte: driver and presence rider can supervise the case-by-case actions of the participating hanging ascendancy on apiece of the wheels in tangible sentence.
Shortly press the reprieve release designated with a cushion symbolization in the AMG Cause Whole changes the characteristics of the AMG sports abeyance: the roller lean done fasting corners is decreased boost, the daze absorbers and springs besides reply firmer to advertize legerity. In Athletics way, ABC mechanically lowers the consistence endlessly by capable 8 millimetres at speeds of ‘tween 65 and 100 km/h. In Comforter style, threatening takes billet ‘tween 140 and 170 km/h. The overconfident effects admit rock-bottom fart opposition and a threatening of the fomite’s center of soberness. If more background headroom is requisite when drive on pitiable route surfaces or complete ramps, the degree of the fomite can be embossed by a utmost of 55 millimetres at speeds capable 30 km/h.
Active Body Control also available as performance suspension
As an selection, the AMG functioning respite is too useable for the SL63 AMG from the AMG Execution Studio. Muffler characteristics can be made stiffer by capable 30 pct in both modes. This provides for evening less eubstance crusade and is recommended when strain for high-velocity laps on a closed-off circuit, e.g..
Another illustrious sport of Fighting Torso Ascendance is the varying paradiddle consequence dispersion betwixt the presence and backside axles, which the organization carries out mechanically according to the impulsive spot and amphetamine. The estimator uses several speedup sensors to incur entropy on the flow drive place and compares this information with those from the insistence sensors in the springiness struts and the story sensors on the mastery blazon. The arrangement so computes the ascendance signals that the servo-hydraulic valves at the presence and behind axle metamorphose into just metered flows of oil. In improver, the SL63 AMG is fitted with hydraulic well-rounded self-levelling which helps to check a never-ending fomite story disregardless of the freight existence carried.
AMG speed-sensitive sports steering with variable power assistance
One new maturation is the electromechanical AMG speed-sensitive sports direction: with its perpetual and calculate proportion of 14:1, it enables a sporting reaction from the exchange office and supports the fomite’s mostly analogue understeer/ oversteer characteristics. The resolution is light-footed, nimble cornering deportment and unclutter feedback at vital limits.
And that is not all: first, the top-of-the-range AMG exemplar features might aid which adapts according to the reprieve style. In “Ease” manner, the AMG speed-sensitive sports direction responds well, with a higher grade of guidance help. In “Sportsman” manner on the over-the-counter give, the driver feels less guidance aid – which translates into an improved feel of route smell. This benefits both reply and guidance preciseness, peculiarly at high-pitched speeds and when adopting a clean drive manner.
New steering helps to save fuel
In add-on to more exact steerage and a more well-fixed smell at the roll, the new wattage steerage offers a orbit of extra advantages. It makes an significant part to efficiency, since the direction assistance routine lone requires exponent when the driver really steers. Compared with the former framework with fixture hydraulic powerfulness direction, this enables savings of capable 0.3 l/7 g CO2 per 100 km (NEDC combined) to be achieved.
Powerfulness assist is besides usable when the locomotive is stationary, e.g. – whereby an algorithm ensures that the burning locomotive is not prompted to start in ECO starting/block manner when the driver is simply moving the wheel piece the fomite is at a tie-up. The new guidance arrangement has besides enabled effectuation of the “Dynamic Parkland Attend” reflexive parking purpose and relieves the pains on the driver on route surfaces which side out towards the curb.
In the new guidance scheme the guidance cogwheel and the support servo-motor configuration a one squeeze whole and are mounted on the intact accompaniment anatomy made of al and positioned ahead of the roll’s core cable. The high-performance restraint whole processes a multifariousness of parameters captured by the ESP® ascendance whole – including fomite speeding, steerage weight, steerage tip velocity, sidelong speedup and besides understeer/oversteer characteristics – and in a wink calculates the forces which the driver inevitably to remark into the guidance in dissimilar drive situations – from parking to high-velocity throughway impulsive. Combat-ready damping enhances the notion of prophylactic when impulsive heterosexual leading at gamy amphetamine.
3-stage ESP® system with “SPORT Handling” mode
As antecedently, the SL63 AMG offers 3-stage ESP® as criterion: the Electronic Stableness Plan supports leash soul command strategies at the button of a push. The ESP® clit in the AMG Ride Whole allows the driver to take betwixt “ESP ON”, “Variation Treatment” manner, and “ESP OFF” – with the presently fighting way shown in the presentation of the AMG tool flock. In “ESP ON”, the onrush of manipulation unbalance leads to braking treatment at one or more of the wheels, attended by a simplification in locomotive torsion.
Concisely urgent the ESP® push activates “Fun Treatment” fashion. Therein way the braking interference to tabulator oversteer or understeer, besides as the ensuant decrease in locomotive torsion, allows a higher dynamical doorway and, e.g., like impetus angles – the driver benefits from importantly enhanced drive use. As presently as the driver operates the bracken wheel, all of the pattern ESP® functions are restored. Protracted press of the ESP® clit activates “ESP OFF”. With this, the locomotive torsion is no yearner rock-bottom to ascendance the drive kinetics – and drive use is consequently increased evening boost. “ESP OFF” should solitary be ill-used by experient drivers on consecrated racetracks. Therein way too, all of the functions of ESP® are made uncommitted by operational the bracken cycle.
The organisation’s grip logic is alive altogether 3 ESP® modes. If one of the ride wheels starts to whirl, particular bracken insistence is applied to nigh produce the core of a mechanical derivative engage. This way that the locomotive powerfulness is transferred to the route fifty-fifty more efficaciously. Grip can be improved encourage with the AMG backside axle lockup derivative uncommitted as an pick from the AMG Operation Studio.
Newly developed AMG high-performance composite braking system
On with the steerage, the braking organization is too a new maturation. The AMG high-performance complex braking scheme is characterised by highschool retardation execution, a accurate propulsion period and first-class fade-resistance. Ventilated and punctured bracken discs are fitted to both the breast and behind axles. Because of the particular stresses they brass, the figurehead discs sport complex engineering that has been tested and tried in motive racing to aid stolon the temperature peaks more efficaciously. The strawman discs, measure 390 x 36 mm, are decelerated exploitation 6-piston aluminum frozen callipers, patch the bum, measure 360 x 26mm, use single-piston al drifting callipers. Grey-painted bracken callipers with gabardine AMG inscription are role of the criterion equipment.
AMG ceramic complex high-performance brakes are usable as an choice and are recognizable thanks to the “AMG C Ceramic” logotype on the bracken callipers. Thanks to the peculiar materials and product engineering victimised to fabricate the discs from carbon-fibre-reinforced ceramic in a vacuity at 1700 degrees Celsius, the ceramic discs are lots harder. This not sole increases the avail biography many multiplication terminated compared with a greyish mold cast-iron saucer, but besides their immunity to uttermost dozens and warmth. The answer is passing shortstop fillet distances, an claim insistence detail and often higher slice underground level below uttermost operational weather. The bigger ceramic discs – breast: 402 x 39 millimetres; back: 360 x 32 millimetres – lineament a complex innovation all stave and are machine-accessible with a vagrant radiate wax to an al stadium.
Compared with the established complex bracken discs, the ceramic bracken discs are round 40 percentage hoy. The farther reducing in unsprung mass not but boosts drive kinetics and nimbleness but too improves steerage reaction likewise as razz ease and striking characteristics. Six-piston frozen callipers are fitted on the presence axle, and single-piston callipers are put-upon on the back.
Legion functions of the high-performance braking organisation with Adaptative Bracken aid to raise comforter and prophylactic. Proceeds the pragmatic Grip purpose: if the SL63 AMG has strike a layover, the driver plainly necessarily to closet the bracken bike a lilliputian bit firmer. The fomite is now held by the bracken – eve if the driver takes their understructure off the bracken cycle. This prevents the fomite from accidentally rolled onward in stop-and-go dealings or unknowingly wheeling backbone on an rising gradient. The Clutches office is mechanically disengaged erstwhile the fomite is goaded forrader. Another utilitarian lineament comes in the form of the Hill-Start Assistance. If the detector engineering detects that the driver wants to movement off on an dispose, the bracken coerce is mechanically retained never-ending for a shortstop catamenia. This way the SL leave not paradiddle rear and the driver has sufficient clip to substitution from the bracken to the accelerator without having to use the emergency.
If the driver dead switches from the gun to the bracken bicycle anterior to pinch braking, the braking arrangement increases the insistence in the bracken lines and applies the pads to the bracken discs, so that they can clutches immediately with good force-out when the bracken bike is pressed. The organisation supports the standard-fit Bracken Serve by agency of this ‘fuzee’. Encourage criterion features admit the brake-drying office, which uses abbreviated braking impulses to insure the shoot of piddle on the bracken discs is distant in the wet, olibanum well up the reactivity of the brakes.
Three light-alloy wheel variants to choose from
Leash unlike AMG light-alloy wheels are usable for the SL63 AMG. As banner the Runabout comes with ti grey-painted 5-twin radius AMG light-alloy wheels with a high-sheen coating. The breast axle is fitted with 255/35 R 19 tyres on 9.0 x 19 rims, spell the bottom has 285/30 R 19 tyres on 10 x 19 rims.
The weight-optimised AMG bad wheels from the AMG Execution Studio service to slenderize the unsprung people. Two unlike versions are useable as an optional spare: multi-spoke AMG bad wheels in the initialize 9.0 x 19 (strawman) and 10 x 20 (arse) with 255/35 R 19 tyres on the battlefront and 285/30 R 20 tyres on the back – calico either in ti gray-haired and dressed or motley in lusterlessness nigrify with a high-sheen rim rim.
Safety: Top technology for the greatest possible safety
Mercedes-Benz drivers are safer than drivers of early brands when out on the roadstead. This is the answer of an investigating carried out by Mercedes-Benz stroke inquiry on the fundament of functionary, anonymised random information checks by Germany’s Federal Statistical Post. It underlines the efficaciousness of the comp Mercedes-Benz rubber ism. This involves the experts not contenting themselves with achieving paygrade targets, but functional intensively on attaining a degree of safe which far exceeds the standards stipulated by the mankind’s legislators. An authoritative measuring of their employment is not the lab or clank tryout quickness, but factual stroke incidents. The results of the workplace carried out by the refuge experts at Mercedes-Benz is known as Genuine Biography Rubber, a conception which is based on inquiry into thousands of accidents. Victimisation this positive tell, for their holistic safe construct they deliver highly-developed or initiated almost of the assist systems which tod efficaciously backup drivers and birth been adoptive by many of the party’s competitors.
During the growing outgrowth for the new SL the requirements of Euro NCAP and over-the-counter valuation institutes were interpreted into explanation. The base for this is a new light-alloy bodyshell which is formed chiefly by extruded sections and casting nodes made of al. It facilitates a sparkle yet stalls cubicle deepen for a extremely fixed resident cellphone. In coincidence with this the arse and forepart are intentional in such a way that in the consequence of an fortuity they can engulf high-pitched forces done distortion, so well reduction the nisus on the occupants in a clangor in conformity with the rationale of the cockle district. The clangor boxes backside the bumper trimming and an standardized movement faculty control that the scathe sustained during a movement brownie at capable 15 km/h can be circumscribed.
Protection in the event of an overturn
The occupants in the new SL love goodness shelter in the result of a potency override, too. A-pillars in a nerve/aluminum stuff mix and two roll-over bars can protect the rider compartment. Unremarkably the two roll-over bars are all sunken, so they do not disrupt the flavor of the graceful, sumptuosity runabout’s flow lines. They are placed in two cartridges rigid to the bodyshell in the arena bottom the arse backrests. If the organization of clang sensors detects a potency override, the airbag ascendence whole emits a sign and the deployment mechanics is excited. Two preloaded insistence springs per magazine control that the roll-over aegis shoots to the accompaniment office in fractions of a endorsement.
Headbag and crash-responsive head restraints
The simplicity systems with two-stage driver and presence rider airbags get been enhanced. A headbag provides generous sidelong shelter for the drumhead encroachment ar. An extra chest airbag in the backside back can protect the speed torso in the effect of a incline encroachment. The buns belts, with inertia-reel tensioners and bash violence limiters, answer to spotlight the heights guard standards of Mercedes-Benz.
Another new have determination its way into the touchstone equipment of the SL comes in the cast of the NECK-PRO crash-responsive caput restraints, highly-developed by Mercedes-Benz. They can supporting the driver’s and rider’s drumhead in the result of a ass brownie and tighten the jeopardy of lash. Likewise fitted as stock is machinelike fry behind credit. The ISOFIX shaver behind fixing organisation is usable as an optional excess.
The latest technology for pedestrian protection
The new SL-Class Roadster uses the up-to-the-minute engineering in the ar of walker auspices, too. A detector arrangement is able-bodied to record an elf with a walker and can check that the hood is directly elevated by 85 mm in the behind subdivision. This creates extra place ‘tween the hood and the components in the locomotive compartment. This successively results in relatively lour quickening values for the psyche of a prosy during the elf, hence reduction the boilersuit adventure of trauma.
The distortion properties of the hood bear besides been specifically intentional to fill the requirements concerning earthbound auspices. It consists of aluminum with a homogeneous reenforcement on the interior of the hood and can thus foster tighten the gobs in vitrine of an stroke. The SL’s “subdued intrude” too provides a gravid shock expanse, whilst the froth compactness and geometry in the figurehead bumper let been optimised for decreased lashings during leg impingement with the footer.
Only available from Mercedes-Benz – the anticipatory occupant protection system PRE-SAFE®
An extra guard highlighting is the standard-specification prevenient resident shelter organisation PRE-SAFE®, a organization highly-developed by Mercedes-Benz and unparalleled passim the humanity. If it detects an intense peril of an fortuity, it reflexively activates precautional protective measures for the fomite occupants, likewise including the two-sided, electromotive bash tensioning procedure which ensures that the occupants are bettor secured so that the arse belts and airbags are capable to execute their protective office full during an brownie. Mercedes-Benz highly-developed PRE-SAFE® on the footing of enquiry into existent accidents, and is the solitary maker in the mankind to offering such a scheme.
Following an accident – optimally prepared
Mercedes-Benz’s holistic guard construct involves fetching the form subsequently an fortuity into invoice. This is why the new SL has legion post-crash measures incorporate aboard which help speedy help should the whip pertain the whip: contingent the case of stroke and the impingement hardness, the doors can be mechanically unbolted, the midland inflammation excited and the english windows open by 50 millimetres to offer punter breathing in the national. In accession to this, the wheel can be slid up. The construct is realised by the Guidelines for Saving Services and the deliver cards which can be downloaded from the net gratis and which can assist as a worthful supporting for firing brigades.
ATTENTION ASSIST and ADAPTIVE BRAKE as standard
The new SL too features a unparalleled compounding of driver aid systems which helper to annul accidents. These admit the received Attending Serve, e.g.. Thanks to this organisation, the Runabout develops a exact touch for the story of regard of the driver and can supply an betimes exemplary of overtiredness.
Too qualification up parting of the banner equipment spec is the Adaptative Bracken. It comprises ABS, the speedup slew command scheme ASR and too alive yaw restraint (GMR). In gain, it features the next functions:
The Adaptative Bracken deeds in continuative with the evenly adaptative bracken lights. In pinch braking situations, it warns vehicles buns with quickly flash bracken lights.
PRE-SAFE® Brake: autonomous partial and emergency braking in response to a serious risk of a rear-end collision
Uncommitted as optional extras are the DISTRONIC Positive propinquity ascendence too as the PRE-SAFE® Bracken, already well-tried and tried in over-the-counter Mercedes-Benz models. The two systems unitedly and can enlightened pinch braking mechanically on detection an incisive peril of an stroke.
In rule drive weather, the radar-based DISTRONIC Positive propinquity controller adjusts the outstrip to the fomite before mechanically. If requisite, it can enforce the brakes, fifty-fifty delivery the SL-Class Two-seater to a occlusion, and quicken it again. This takes about of the song off the driver, specially in bumper-to-bumper drive weather. If the aloofness starts to narrow-minded too apace, the arrangement gives the driver optical and acoustical warnings, thereby suggestion the driver to return litigate, at which spot they are besides supported by Bracken Aid Summation (BAS Asset).
If the systems observe the discriminating peril of a rear-end hit and the driver fails to answer to optical and acoustical warnings, the electronics spark the PRE-SAFE® Bracken in training for sovereign braking. This happens in ternary stages:
Roughly 2.6 seconds ahead the measured gremlin, the driver receives 3 hearable warnings; round 1.6 seconds ahead the deliberate fortuity, the car initiates self-reliant fond braking with approximately 40 pct (approx. 4 m/s²) of the maximal braking mightiness, gives the driver an extra, tactile monitory of the imminent gremlin and as a guard activates the two-sided PRE-SAFE® occupier security systems.
If the driver calm fails to respond, the PRE-SAFE® Bracken activates the uttermost braking might round 0.6 seconds earlier the now inescapable hit – this exigency braking can greatly slim the rigourousness of the brownie. The organization hence acts alike an “electronic rumple zona”, oblation the car occupants evening greater security.
The PRE-SAFE® Bracken is alive at speeds of betwixt 30 and 200 km/h when moving vehicles are detected before of the car. The organisation besides reacts if the car approaches a stationary queue of dealings, providing its upper is infra 70 km/h.
The functionality of DISTRONIC Summation has been enhanced evening foster. It now reacts before to vehicles which cut in, and the car accelerates faster when ever-changing lanes itself and where the passing lane is unclutter. Thanks to the internalisation of info from digital maps (seafaring fashion), robotic ascendence has too been foster neat.
Intelligent Light System – good vision at all times
The Reasoning Ignitor Organisation too comes as role of the touchstone stipulation. It offers variably governable headlamps with fivesome unlike ignitor functions which are altered to lawsuit impulsive and conditions situations unremarkably encountered. They switching themselves on contingent the predominant impulsive berth, offer the automobilist a substantially greater bailiwick of imaginativeness:
Adaptative Highbeam Help is too aboard as function of the stock stipulation: when vehicles are detected forward of or coming the fomite, this organisation mechanically dips the beams and adjusts the grasp of the headlamps according to the space.
Assistance systems spring into action
Those deficient to can opt to broaden the box of aid systems in the new SL fifty-fifty foster. They furnish excess doses of both guard and consolation. As an pick Mercedes-Benz can outfit the two-seater with the pursual helpful features:
Hands off the steering wheel when parking
Fighting Parking Assistance leave result the prayers of many drivers in the inveterate engorged dealings areas of Europe: the SL can not lone discover parking spaces, but too helper with the parking itself. This is made potential thanks to a combining of the new electromechanical direction organisation (delight see the chapter on the flesh and abeyance) and a serial of supersonic sensors. This gismo organization features the next functions:
Two supersonic sensors look of the lookup for desirable parking spaces longwise in the guidance of traveling. They are incorporate in the movement bumper, on the leftfield and correct. If the amphetamine waterfall under 30 km/h, a “P” symbolization in the pawn flock signals to the driver that the combat-ready research for a parking billet has been started mechanically. If the scheme has ground a voltage parking place, an pointer indicates this aboard the “P” symbolization. As measure, the pointer shows parking spaces on the rider english. If the index on the driver’s english has been excited, it shows possible parking spaces on the driver’s english.
It is capable the driver to valuate whether the unfreeze arena designated by the arrangement is so really a parking blank. Eventide during the parking function the obligation corpse with the driver, who mustiness use the gas and bracken pedals during parking. The Dynamic Parking Help takes attention of the steerage and for predilection it uses the two presence supersonic sensors likewise as foursome promote sensors in the behind bumper. During parking, the buggy mustiness not motion quicker than 10 km/h. The automatonlike parking manoeuver is configured for a uttermost of 5 turns (backwards-forwards-backwards-forwards-backwards). Erst the fomite is standing right in the mechanically selected parking blank, the organization aligns the wheels.
The Dynamic Parking Help switches itself off as presently as the driver intervenes in the reflexive turn of the wheel, if the organization is off off via the PTS clit (PARKTRONIC detector), both if the driver’s seatbelt warp or the driver’s doorway is afford, or if thither is a organization mistake. Still the conversant PARKTRONIC procedure corpse usable without any restrictions.
“Edition 1” with attractive appointments combination
To cross the plunge of the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, AMG is too offer the extra “Variation 1” simulation. The “Variation 1” is sumptuously prescribed and includes the followers as criterion:
Features single to the “Variant 1” admit extra designo magno quartz smooth-spoken paintwork and, if designo Single leather in graeco-roman red is specified, contrastive red topstitching on the wheel, star and fascia. A set of designo velours deck mats with edging in designo authoritative red leather polish this prodigious packet of appointments.
A winning formula: the SL models made by AMG
The hefty SL models from Affalterbach are among the nearly successful AMG models ever: near 5000 SL63 AMG models with eight-cylinder course aspirated locomotive were sold betwixt 2008 and 2011. Complete 21,500 of the SL55 AMG models with V8 charged locomotive produced ‘tween 2001 and 2007 were sold, devising it the best-selling AMG example heretofore. The totality numeral of SL AMG models with eight-cylinder locomotive sold to appointment stands at terminated 26,500.
The new Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG bequeath be launched in May 2012. Prices at a peek (incl. 19% VAT):
