These are the first spy pictures of the new Mercedes SL63 AMG in testing.
The new SL63 AMG, caught near the Nürburgring, is sporting a heavy disguise but Mercedes has made it clear that the front-end styling of the new CLS will carry over to all its models, including the next SL due in 2012.
Mercedes SL test mules have been spied before, but this model’s identity as the SL63 AMG is given away by its extra front camouflage hiding larger air intakes.
The front spoiler is also different to previous mules, while AMG alloy wheels cover larger disc brakes, as well as new, larger callipers, at the front and rear. Quad exhausts are hidden by heavy disguise at the rear.
The SL63 AMG will be powered by Mercedes’ new twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 that’s already been confirmed for its S63 AMG and CL63 AMG models.
