The AMG SL65 is one of the few cars out there with a truly retractable power hardtop. AMG is the performance racing division of Mercedes-Benz. Every car adorned with the AMG badge is a performer and the SL65 is no exception.

 

Although not visually very different from its other SL cousins, this car has it where it counts. Under the hood is a handcrafted AMG 6.0 litre V12 twin turbo engine with a variable pressure fuel pump. The twin turbochargers operate at up to 22 psi boost, giving the SL65 738 lb-ft of peak torque and 621 hp of peak power. The car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

 

The AMG performance suspension with 2-stage adjustment is track-tuned for maximum handling, although it can be set to comfort mode. Combined with this is the AMG 7-speed automatic transmission for the fastest gear shifts. This too can be set to manual and controlled with the steering-wheel mounted paddles.
