The SL500 was the top-selling version of the SL-Class early in the R230 series. It used a 5.0 L V8 engine, which produced 306 hp (228 kW) and 339 ft•lbf (460 N•m).
A 5.5 L 32-valve V8 engine replaced the 5.0 L found in the SL500 for 2007. The engine is essentially the old SL55 engine without the addition of Supercharger. The 5.5 litre natrually aspirated V8 can also be found in the new SLK 55 AMG. This model will retain the SL500 name in most markets, but will be sold as the SL550 in North America. It now produces 382 hp (285 kW) and 391 ft•lbf (530 N•m). It now accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a limited top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h).
In 2007, Mercedes will create 75 limited-edition 50th Anniversary SL550s. According to another article, Mercedes created 550 of these cars, all pewter in color with burgundy leather, black ash wood trim, 18-inch double five-spoked wheels, and matching 50th Anniversary Edition luggage.
The SL600 is the highest-output version of the non-AMG SL-Class models. It uses a V12 engine which produced 493 hp (368 kW) and 590 ft•lbf (800 N•m) from 2003 through 2006 and was uprated to 510 hp (380 kW) and 612 ft•lbf (830 N•m) for 2007. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz. However Car and Driver achieved extremely impressive acceleration test figures with 60 mph (97 km/h) achieved in just 3.6 seconds, 100 mph (160 km/h) in 8.6 seconds and a Quarter Mile run in 11.9 seconds at 120 mph (190 km/h).
The SL55 AMG version was released in 2002 with a supercharged 5.4 Liter, 5439 cc Mercedes-AMG V8 engine. This produced 493 hp (368 kW) at 6,100 rpm and can propel the car to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.7 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz. Car and Driver got 60 and 100 mph (160 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and 10.9 seconds, respectively. The car completed the Quarter Mile in 13 seconds flat at 110 mph (180 km/h).
The SL55 AMG was updated for 2007 with a 510 hp (380 kW), 531 ft•lbf (720 N•m) version of the same engine. With increased power and torque, the car can now, according to the official website, accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.4 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than before. The new model has only slight visual differentiators, the most noticeable is the three-slat grille rather than the four-slat version used previously. The top speed is limited to 155 mph (249 km/h), but can be extended to 186 mph (299 km/h) for an additional cost. The 6.3 liter V8 is expected to replace the current engine for the 2009 model year. Upon release in 2002 this was for it's time the fastest automatic car in the world. Of course this was before the SLR Mclaren hit the market in 2003-present.
The SL65 AMG version offers 604 hp (450 kW) from its twin-turbocharged 6.0 liter, 5,980 cc V12 engine at 5500 rpm. It retailed for $179,720 as of 2005. Mercedes-Benz listed a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds on their official website, though several road tests show that it actually takes under 4 seconds to reach 60 mph (97 km/h). Car and Driver achieved 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 3.8 seconds, 100 mph (160 km/h) in 8.2 seconds and recorded a Quarter Mile-time of 11.9 seconds at 123 mph (198 km/h).
The SL receives a face lift in 2008 featuring a new front end that evokes the classic 300SL with a large grille featuring a prominent 3-pointed star and twin "power domes" on the hood, the car also features new headlights with an optional "Intelligent Light System" and a new speed sensitive steering system. A more signifcant option will be the addition of a new entry-level model, the SL280 with a 228 hp (170 kW) V6. Another breakthrough for the facelift SL is a new 3.5 litre high-revving V6 with an 316 hp and 360Nm torque in the SL350, a improvement of 44 hp and 10Nm over the outgoing model. Also the outgoing SL55 AMG will be replaced by the newer M156 6.2 litre SL63 AMG. This has the new AMG developed 7-speed MCT "Multi Clutch Technology" semi-automatic transmission. This uses a twin clutch design, a first for Mercedes and AMG. It features a compact, wet start-up clutch and double declutching. it's fitted with four drive modes: "C" (Comfort), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual) and boasts 100 millisecond shifts in "M" mode. The face lifted SL will be debuted at the Geneva Auto Show.
SL 65 AMG vs. C6 Z06
How a 2007 Z06 with Headers, ported intake/throttle body, and Dyno tune slaughters a SL 65 AMG
472/452 to the wheels (Z06)...Bad run for the 65, it had an 11.9x time
earlier in the day. Both cars did not run to their potential in this vid.
2006 Mercedes Benz SL65 V12 BiTurbo Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour

showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues

Mercedes Benz A-class W169 Development
The 2009 A-Class features redesigned front and rear bumpers, new tail lamps
and headlights, new grille, new exterior mirrors, a restyled interior
design and new upholsteries and colors. The 2009 A-Class was released
alongside the refreshed 2009 M-Class and B-Class.
A four-day, seven-country tour which officially introduced the car
culminated in an event in Milan, in the Castello Sforzesco, where all the
touring units were received by a myriad of European personalities from
music, fashion, sport and movies. Armani presented a fashion show and
Christina Aguilera did a live performance of her song "Hello", composed
exclusively for the occasion.
The W169 advertising campaign included television spots with Christina
Aguilera, Giorgio Armani and Boris Becker.
Sales of the W169 were targeted at 50,000 units in 2004. Dr. Joachim
Schmidt, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing, Mercedes Car Group,
said that target had been reached even before vehicles arrived in dealer
DaimlerChrysler invested EUR 900 million in developing the Rastatt plant
where the A-Class is produced, and created 1600 new jobs (for a total of
4700). A further 600 people work on the industrial estate at the plant
In 1999, Mercedes Benz opened, in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais (Brazil), its
first factory in South America dedicated to passenger cars, with an
investment of USD 840 million and 10,000 employees. The factory initially
produced A-Class and C-Class models, assembling them from pieces
manufactured in Germany. The target for the cars was regional markets (from
Argentina to Mexico) with modifications made to the cars to suit local
conditions, like a protection for the motor base for the mostly poor roads
in South America. In 2005 the factory stopped production of A-Class cars.
Mercedes-Benz has made a number of confusing announcements - first that a
"weak Euro" could have produce costs problems and later that the "fall of
the Dollar" will cause the enterprise to not be profitable.
According to some analyses, Mercedes-Benz considers the creation of the
A-Class to have reduced its prestige in Europe, and the company has
concentrated its efforts on its larger and more profitable vehicle lines.

Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG V12 Biturbo Sound!
In this video you see a black Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG with the V12 Biturbo in Monaco. The sound is not that loud as
the 6.2 V8 engines from AMG but I think the V12 Biturbo sounds pretty good as well!
What do you prefer; an S63 AMG or S65 AMG?

2014 Mercedes Benz SL 65 AMG - Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive and In-Depth Review (English)
Deutsche Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chRCLjtl9lg
We had the chance to get our hands on a 2014 Mercedes Benz SL 65 AMG.
Included this video review you will find some strange German humor a host
with a strong German accent and the beast from Mercedes-AMG itself.
If you are brave enought you get a taste of the Start Up and Exhaust sound. We share our experience from the
Test Drive and try to give you a daily-driver oriented In-Depth Review of
the 2014 Mercedes Benz SL 65 AMG.
Some numbers? There is a fine 6 Liter V12 that has 630 hp. Those are good
for a maximum torque of 1.000 Nm. Topspeed? 300 km/h .. 0 to 100 km/h / 62
mph in 4.0 seconds. Not included in those numbers - a bunch of driving fun.
Hope you enjoy the clip!
