Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG & CL65 AMG make Canadian debut this Fall
Toronto, Ontario – The new Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG and CL65 AMG will arrive at Canadian dealerships this fall, says Mercedes-Benz Canada. The cars feature a new 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine. The engine produces 604 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque resulting in a 0-100 km/h time of approximately 4.2 seconds.
The CL65 AMG and SL65 AMG are equipped as standard with Active Body Control (ABC) and special AMG spring struts with firmer damping. Fully reworked dynamic handling control systems such as ABS, Brake Assist, ASR and ESP (Electronic Stability Program) complement the enhanced chassis setup. In order to cope with the high power output of the AMG twin-turbo engine, the front wheels of both the AMG V12 models are equipped with a newly developed, high-performance eight-piston compound brake system. Contact with the road is achieved by AMG 19-inch twin-spoke wheels equipped with 245/40 ZR 19 inch tires at the front and 275/35 ZR 19 inch tires at the rear.
