Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this rare, low mileage SL63 AMG which has had just one keeper from new. The Mercedes-Benz is more than just a badge. It’s a promise of quality and technological excellence. This SL63 AMG is the epitome of that excellence.
Chris Harris wrote in EVO Magazine, “The 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 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…”
John Barker went on to say, “The SL63 looks different, wearing the new, range-wide wide-mouth facelift. More importantly, right away it feels different, more sporty. Its town ride is more resilient, its transmission crisper and, out of town, its performance is of a quite different character. At 518bhp, the SL63’s naturally aspirated V8 offers a fraction more power than the old, supercharged unit… by the time I handed the keys back I had been won over by its ability and consistency. The further you drive the SL63, the better it feels. The directness of its steering, the firmness of its chassis and the need to work its engine and gearbox hard ultimately fuse into a very satisfying experience. As ever, the active suspension helps disguise the SL’s weight, giving the car a neat, agile feel through a sequence of bends.”
Our car was supplied new by Mercedes-Benz Bromley in September 2008. It is complete with original leather book pack, original new vehicle invoice, history file and MOT history. Serviced in October 2022, and with a new tyre set fitted, this SL63 is all ready to be enjoyed. A 12-month written warranty will also be included.
