Click the image above for more hi-res shots of the SL63

Two doors, no top, red leather interior, ceramic brakes, and 538 horses is a combination you once expected to be named for an Italian city or racing personage. No more. And while the alpha-numeric SL63 might not be all that Germanic in itself, it gets no more Teutonic than the hyphenated moniker "Mercedes-Benz" that precedes it. Now that Merc is making cars as fast as those of its Latin neighbor, perhaps the SL63 -- being a tad more comfortable -- is the car you drive to go check on the progress of your bespoke Italian supercar. Check out the hi-res gallery of the Bahn-burningest droptop.

      LOL! AMG appears to be moving away from the monobloc style. It's still five spokes, albeit split. But dang, it looks just like the Porsche rims, at a quick glance.

      What the...? Is Daimler's stand lit by candles? I can hardly see the car.

      Is it me, or are those wheels VERY similar to what's on the 997 Turbos??
        • 7 Years Ago
        Its in fashion today to have 5-spoke wheels on cars, there are many similar wheels, but yeah this ones are extremely similar...
