Merc SL65 AMG Dropped

Published by on Aug 1st, 2011, No Comments

Although Mercedes has silently withdrawn the SL65 AMG model, the car maker has plans to bring in a redesigned model at a later stage.

In case you need reminding, the twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 mill produces 612 PS (450 kW / 604 hp) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. Though earlier reports had hinted at the possibility, we are still not sure about the automaker’s plans to completely drop the V12 production.

Based on persisting rumours, chances are that this could be the end of V12, as Merc could go for the fuel-efficient V8l instead.
