Can Mercedes-Benz’ SL63 AMG Return Back To Its Former Glory?

The latest iteration of the Mercedes SL-Class has been one of the toughest models to sell for the company, despite its long and rich tradition. But why?

It’s certainly not because of the way it drives, especially in the 63 AMG form as reviewed here by the crew over at Motor Trend.

The twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 engine remains one of the most charismatic units you can get, but more importantly, one of the most satisfying soundtracks known to man. Its unmistakable V8 rumble has already given it a position among the all-time greats.

The problem lies within the Mercedes range; the SL used to be Mercedes’ flagship open-top model, the one you would buy if you were after the company’s absolute best in everything wrapped in a convertible.

However, now that Mercedes offers the S-Class Convertible and they are about to show us the drop top AMG GT model, things have become rather tough for one of the most iconic nameplates in the company’s history.

And we didn’t even mention anything about its looks. Find out more on the video below.
