Following the disastrous facelift they gave the R231 generation of the SL, Mercedes-Benz quickly got their act together and fixed the facelift with another facelift. The result was good, but they decided not to make a big fuss about it and let the car find its own place. This Mercedes SL65 AMG, which was sighted in France, is the embodiment of that dignified reserve.

The corrective surgery given to the latest SL fixed the issue the car had around its nose and especially its weird eyes. Changes were subtle, but they did their job and the car now looks pretty sweet. The back-end revisions were even less substantial and just refined an already beautiful look over there. Mercedes SL65 AMG adds to the beauty of the new styling details with a set of discreet aero parts and the exclusive matt gunmetal AMG paint job.
