The 2018 AMG SL65 is the latest hard top convertible Mercedes-Benz to be released. The high-performance roadster comes equipped with a handcrafted AMG 6.0L V12 engine and twin turbos that can operate at up to 22 pounds of boost. Combined with a seven-speed automatic transmission the new SL65 is nothing less than amazing. The combination of engine and transmission give this new Mercedes convertible a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds. The AMG SL65 Roadster can also reach a maximum speed of 186 mph.
The new AMG SL is nothing short of legendary with an all-new design and the most powerful engine in a Mercedes SL Roadster. Of course, you still have the signature AMG crossing on the front grill and a retractable hardtop. You can transform your SL from a coupe to a convertible with the touch of a button. The top can be folded open or closed in just 20 seconds even while driving at 25 mph. The roof also has an optional tint that can be turned on and off with the push of a button.
The new lithium-ion battery pack takes the i8 further than before by increasing the Ah from 20 Ah to 34 Ah while also boosting the capacity to 9.4 KWh of useable energy. The updated electric motor combined with the upgraded battery increase the total horsepower to 141hp an increase of 12 hp from the previous model. Both the three-cylinder, turbocharged 1.5-liter engine and the 6-speed automatic transmission, remains the same. With all of these performance increases the new i8 roadster can go from 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds.
