Mercedes-AMG 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine

AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine in the AMG engineering area

The further-developed 4.0-litre V8 engine from Mercedes-AMG impresses in both output levels with its explosive power delivery combined with finely-adjustable output. Numerous high-tech components and materials from motor racing are used. The twin-scroll turbochargers are placed between the cylinder heads ("hot inner V") for spontaneous response and low exhaust emissions. Cylinder shutoff when power demand is low reduces fuel consumption.

Mercedes-AMG 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine

AMG engine in the AMG engineering area

The world's most powerful 4-cylinder passenger car engine in series production delivers a top-class technology package. Depending on the power required, the combined fuel system works with direct or port injection. The single-flow 48 V exhaust gas turbocharger and the boost of the belt-driven starter generator also contribute to the feisty response of the power unit.

  • Technische Darstellung Allradantrieb AMG Performance 4MATIC+

    AMG Performance 4MATIC+ fully variable all-wheel drive

    For the first time, the SL delivers its power to the road with the state-of-the-art AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. The all-wheel drive variably links the rear axle to the front axle and thus guarantees ideal torque distribution.

  • Technische Darstellung AMG Keramik Hochleistungs-Verbundbremsanlage

    AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system(Optional for SL 63)

    The AMG ceramic high-performance compound brake system offers excellent deceleration values and maximum fade resistance in extreme situations, for example when used on the racetrack. The brake system impresses with short braking distances, sensitive response and, last but not least, high stability and durability.

  • Technische Darstellung AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL Fahrwerk

    AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension

    The innovative AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension with active roll stabilisation using intelligent hydraulics enables improved turn-in and load change behaviour with typical AMG dynamics, precision and feedback for the driver. At the same time, it increases ride comfort when driving straight ahead and driving over bumps.

  • Technische Darstellung der Hinterachslenkung

    Rear axle steering

    Rear-axle steering with a steering angle of up to 2.5° increases agility and driving pleasure, especially when cornering quickly. Up to 100 km/h, the rear axle steers in the opposite direction and virtually shortens the wheelbase. From 100 km/h, it then steers in the same direction and thus virtually extends the wheelbase, which supports driving safety.

  • Technische Darstellung des AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9 Getriebe

    AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission

    The spontaneous responsiveness is in part thanks to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission. Relaxed cruising with smooth gearshifts optimised for efficiency and comfort. In the "Sport" and "Sport+" driving modes, correspondingly uncompromising and with extremely short gear changes in line with the driving situation.
