The Mercedes SL line, standing for "Sport-Leicht" (Super Light), is a range of sports cars that has been in production since 1954. This Mercedes Benz SL 63 AMG is a two-door sports car from the R230 generation that was first introduced in 2001. By 2009 the model had undergone cosmetic changes and performance upgrades, with a significant facelift introduced in 2008. The SL 63's updated appearance serves as a testament to Mercedes' design philosophy for that era. This fine 2009 Silver Arrow edition — reported to be 1 of 100 in this configuration — is currently up for sale in California. It is said that the car has recently gone through its maintenance and service checks and has spent 98,910 miles on the road.
For the 2008 facelift, Mercedes-Benz aimed to set a new standard for what a German sports car was supposed to be, and their representation of that was the version you see here. The car received a much more aggressive front end that would not go unnoticed as a performance-oriented machine. This ethos is enhanced by the special edition 'Silver Arrow' paint job that envelopes this car. Styling for the rear end of this vehicle remained relatively close to its form, but the quad tailpipes and purposeful diffuser are sure to grab attention. The seller reports that all four brake pads have been changed, and the 5-spoke AMG wheels are wrapped around Michelin tires that are no more than a couple of years old. The inside of this 2009 Mercedes Benz SL 63 AMG Silver Arrow features a rather exuberant Black and 'Salsa Red' two-tone leather cabin to enhance the sporty nature like that on the exterior. Also present are silver accents spread throughout the interior to add a touch of luxuriousness — it’s still a Mercedes, after all.
Special Edition appearances aside, this car packs a serious amount of power. Sitting under the hood is a massive 32-valve 6.2L V8 producing 518 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque. Couple that with a 7-speed automatic gearbox, and you're looking at a car that can do 0-60 in just over 4.5 seconds.
