2009 Mercedes-benz Sl-class Sl63 Amg on 2040-cars
Ionia, Iowa, United States
2009 SL63 AMG. Excellent condition, no faults that I am aware of. Recent service done, but since it doesnt get driven much, the B service alert is on, which is basically an oil change . Ive owned this vehicle for 3 1/2 years, 10,000 miles since. It is now just over 47,000 miles so the pic is not accurate. 2nd owner; first owner was CEO of a candy company in Chicago; ie. Lemonheads, Red Hots, etc. This car, however is not a lemon! If you are looking at this, then you know what it is capable of and the options. It does not have the extra high performance option, Distronic, or lighted sill plates. Carbon fiber interior, AMG mats. I also added Piecha (German) fog lamps with LED driving lights which dim when lights are on. Car had a 3M clear bra when I got it and I added door edge protection too. It also has a built in ESCORT radar detector and laser jammer. All books present and as an extra, the rear luggage bag is included. Not driven in the winter and stored in my heated garage. WeatherTech fog lamp protectors and I recently added smoke headlight protectors since the pics were taken. They can be removed if so desired. I do have the WeatherTech headlight protectors too. Ive driven Mercedes for over 30 years and this is my 5th SL and first AMG. Its also the first Mercedes Ive ever owned where Ive been stopped, yelled at and thumbs-uped so many times. It is just flat out a good looking car. Dont need to sell it, but I need to eliminate a few things in my life. Car is sold as is, no warranty.

Another month, another car pack for Forza Horizon. This time it's the Recaro Car Pack featuring a motley gang of cars and trucks: the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500, 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R, 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV, 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR, 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition and 2012 Lotus Exige S.
It'll be up for download on Xbox Live on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013 for 400 MS Points. As usual, if you have the Forza Horizon Season Pass you can get them all free, and Season Pass holders will also get a bonus car that's not pictured: the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster.
The Pagani is everything opposite to that Vandura, but while you might not ever win anything with the van, you can always use the back of it as a place to give out free hugs. Check out the video and press release below for more details.
Carlsson's race-tuned versions of the Mercedes-Benz SLK have been taking checkered flags for years, and we won't be surprised if its SLK 340 hill climber fares any different. Developed by multiple German and Swiss hill climb champion Reto Meisel, the carbon-bodied SLK 340 with lightweight brakes and a closed underbody weighs 1,716 pounds. Propelling that tiny bit of weight is a 3.4-liter V8 from Judd with 610 horsepower, and it rolls on 18-inch wheels shod in Avon tires.
It will debut at the Geneva Motor Show before beginning its racing campaigns in the summer. This one won't just tear up roads in Europe, though - Meisel says he plans on bringing it to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The press release below has more details.
At no point during our recent drive of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG did we ever think, "You know, this thing sure is slow." After all, Merc's range-topping SL comes fitted with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 capable of sending 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. But just in case you're still all "meh" about what the SL65 throws down, Brabus will gladly come to your rescue with this, the 800 Roadster.
As its name suggests, the 800 Roadster ups the V12's power figures to 800 horsepower and - wait for it - 1,047 pound-feet of torque. Don't get too excited, though - that torque number has been electronically limited to a measly 811 lb-ft since, you know, the transmission would probably explode if you tried to put the full force through it. Nevertheless, these represent increases of 79 hp and 73 lb-ft over the standard SL65, and that means the 800 Roadster can shoot to 62 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds - two-tenths of a second quicker than the Merc its based on. More impressively, hitting 124 mph takes just under 10 seconds, and the droptop will finally top out at an electronically limited - limited! - 217 mph. Holy smokes.
To manage all of that speed, Brabus has engineered a special carbon fiber aero kit that reduces lift, and a unique control module for the SL65's active body control suspension lowers the ride height by one full inch. The 800 Roadster rides on new 20-inch wheels, and a unique limited-slip rear differential was added, featuring a 40 percent locking rate that further enhances performance when you're attempting to control the beast at its limits. Interior upgrades include new leather and alcantara surfaces throughout the cabin, including a leather-clad trunk.
