It's amazing to think that, in the past 25 years, the horsepower sum of the two most iconic German GT cars has risen by more than 500 equines. But then, together they've also added nearly 1,300 lbs. Yes, they're very different cars these days.
Pity the poor car — like the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG — that must do it all: Deliver elders of the upper class to exclusive clubs and posh eateries, and youngers to d-bag clubs and rich-guy rallies. All the while, it must perform like Walter Röhl might show up for a lap around Spa.
Mercedes teased us with a glimpse of the 2013 Mercedes SL63 AMG yesterday at the company's F1 car launch, and now they're giving the AMG convertible the full press treatment. Look at it cradling these studio drivers with back-pulsing seats and a twin-turbo V8.
Mercedes revealed their new AMG convertible in the launch video for their 2012 F1 car. With a 529 horsepower, 5.5 liter twin-turbo V8 and all the customary AMG accessories, the new SL63 is going to make lot of country club show-offs very happy.
