The SL range of Mercedes-Benz has since its incarnation between the ultimate grand tourer. The SL has always managed to comprise extremely luxury and comfort with extreme levels of performance in a package that has been hard to beat.
The car on offer today is a highly desirable 2009 SL63 AMG. Upon the release of this particular iteration of AMG SL in 2008, Chris Harris wrote, “he seven-speed transmission is very clever too. Ostensibly, it’s a hybrid automatic/manual that locks up once under way. It’s Merc’s alternative to a double-clutch system, and I’m a big fan. It creeps in traffic far more predictably than those ’boxes and even though it doesn’t manage the same seamless shifts, it’s still crisper than any other conventional auto I’ve driven – with the added bonus of a full manual mode that uses two steering-wheel paddles. And, in manual mode, the SL63 is a surprising drive. It steers, handles and goes quite unlike the car it replaces. As an everyday drive, it’s a fabulous all-rounder. The cabin is completely intuitive and the moment the sun comes out you can drop the hood.”
This particular car comes in a fantastic specification with stunning Grey Alpaca leather. The cabin is a fantastic place to sit with its comfort seats and airy feel thanks to the lovely panoramic roof. Power comes from a 6.2 litre V8 that produces 518bhp. The combination of this power, in this fantastic and comfortable package makes this car real value for money.
The car is available for viewing at our London showroom.
