Since its inception in 1954, the SL has remained the flagship grand tourer of Mercedes-Benz. The latest R232 generation represents the pinnacle of this legacy and has been elevated to the coveted status of a Mercedes-AMG product. Nevertheless, the lineage of this esteemed vehicle is also marked by a plethora of special editions, including the R230 which we present to you today. This 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG IWC Edition, of which only 63 have been reported to have made their way to the United States, is an exceptional example of this tradition. With a production run limited to a mere 200 units worldwide, the chance to acquire such a rare and extraordinary vehicle is an opportunity that will not endure indefinitely. Whether you are a devotee of IWC (International Watch Corporation) or a connoisseur of luxury grand tourers, this car represents a unique fusion of these two worlds.
With its sleek Magno Cashmere White exterior, this 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG IWC Edition exudes the suave and sophisticated style for which Mercedes-Benz and IWC are renowned for. The car's power-folding hardtop with a glass roof offers open air freedom at the touch of a button. The vehicle sits on ADV.1 two-piece forged wheels, finished in bronze, while the original 19” AMG twin-5-spoke forged light alloy wheels will also be included in the sale. Carbon fiber elements such as the rear diffuser, rear spoiler, and side air vents, add to the car's distinctive Star appearance. The AMG and IWC logos adorning the interior and exterior gives you the subtle reminder that this is no ordinary SL. The cabin is equally inviting, boasting a special Tobego Brown Leather interior providing luxury and comfort. With its spacious seating for two, occupants can traverse the country in supreme comfort, with not a hair out of place (unless the top is dropped). The carbon fiber interior trim is matched by an array of creature comforts, including powered and heated seats with a pulse massage function, dual-zone climate control, Parktronic, a Harman/Kardon sound system, a multifunction steering wheel, and cruise control. The white-faced dials on the AMG-badged instrument cluster draw the eye, with the speedometer showcasing a top speed of 200mph, hinting at the exceptional performance capabilities of this remarkable vehicle.
What makes this car so rapid? It's the 6.2L V8 engine, which lies peacefully under the hood until awakened. Once unleashed, it generates a formidable 518hp and 465lb-ft of torque, propelling the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG IWC Edition from a standstill to sixty in under 4.5 seconds. With an electronically limited top speed of 155mph, this exceptional vehicle is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 186mph, should the need arise. It is clear that this car is not for the faint of heart, as it offers a level of performance that will satisfy even the most demanding of drivers.
