This afternoon, Mercedes-Benz launched the all-new SL. The 2+2 roadster will be available for the first time with all-wheel drive and rear-axle steering. At launch there will be a choice of two engine outputs using a AMG 4.0 litre V8 biturbo unit. The SL63 4MATIC+ produces 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque. 0 to 62 mph takes 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 195 mph.
