The new Mercedes SL65 AMG hits dealerships today, starting from €236,334 for the normal model and €272,034 for the SL 65 AMG 45th ANNIVERSARY Edition. So it is about 140 grand more than a SL350, but an uninterested eye won’t be able to tell them apart. That’s a bit rough, but then an SL65 is the car for those who want to be discreetly fast.

The 2013 model continues to have the V12 twin-turbo power plant, but this time around it gets 630 horsepower and over a thousand newton meters of torque. As a result, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 4 seconds, with the 200 km/h mark being attained after just 11.8 seconds. The top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited).

Now you might be thinking it is very nearly as fast as a SL63 AMG, why should I spend an extra 70 grand for the SL65? Well, the SL63 can be a bit too loud and too brash at times, whereas the SL65 is always dignified, always classy.

The car is also dripping with technology. You will find a list of some of the most notable features below.

As for the 45th anniversary model, it is more expensive because it comes with extra garnish like designo this and that, tons of carbon fiber, and the fact that it’s limited to 45 units.
