AMG is celebrating its 45th anniversary with a 45-unit run of Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG special-edition cars. The 45 SL65 AMGs will have distinctive paint and interior appointments found on no other SLs. The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG 45th Anniversary model is powered by a 630-hp twin-turbo V-12 producing an electronically limited 737 lb-ft of torque from 2300-4300 rpm. AMG claims the car is capable of reaching 62 mph in 4.0 seconds and is governed at 155 mph.
Mercedes will launch the 45th anniversary model in September. Considering a 2011 SL65 AMG cost about $200,000, if you can find this new special-edition model, expect to pay far more.
See the launch video below and if you ever see one remember that the new Hyundai Veloster also can be purchased with a matte finish so how special is it really?
