The new generation Mercedes SL63 AMG is a weird-looking car. It certainly isn’t pretty – not with those gigantic headlights – and yet, it can become very very cool with a few slight touches here and there. AMG themselves offer a sport pack for it which, in black, looks achingly good. And here’s another try to improve the looks of the SL63 using a set of ADV1 Wheels.
The ADV08DC wheels in Bronze finish and red brake calipers behind them should not work on a white car. But somehow they do here. With a touch of lowering, the wheels completely fill up the fenders, giving the SL a bolder, more aggressive presence. It does the trick. This SL63 does look pretty damn good.
Maybe the SL’s design is starting to grow on us. But we still hope Mercedes soon release a facelifted version and address the issues. The SL63 has the potential of becoming the best sports roadster the world has ever seen. Technically, the car’s brilliant; a stroke of genius. The amazing roof mechanism aside, it is so rigid and agile – thanks to the new aluminum construction – you’d think it’s a sport coupe. And with the weapons-grade AMG V8 under the bonnet, it is fast as hell. All it’s asking for is a better design.
