The SL roadster was a huge success for Mercedes-Benz. It was a mix of beautiful styling, a wide range of engines, and a flagship that shook the supercar world. It also had the glorious name of the legendary SL model that helped its sales. The fast, sleek, roadster received the big, twin-turbo V12 engine from AMG in 2004. From the outside, there were few clues to let others know that it was the top version of the SL. A front apron with a wide centre grille and angled spokes resembled the form of an F1 car. On the bumper's sides, a pair of air-exhausts were placed to help to cool the radiators. Behind the front wheels, another pair of air-scoops were installed to extract the air from the wheel-well. In the back, the rear bumper featured a diffuser in its lower side, with the four oval exhausts.
The SL 65 AMG version of the R230 offers 604 hp from its twin-turbocharged 5,980 cc V12 engine at 5500 rpm Mercedes-Benz listed a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds on their official website, though several road tests show that it took under 4 seconds to reach 60 mph. Car and Driver magazine achieved 60 mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds, 100 mph in 7.5 seconds and recorded a quarter mile time of 11.6 seconds.
