    Mercedes to launch 2013 R231 SL65 AMG at New York Auto Show - M275 twin turbo V12 motor to be used in another SL generation?

    There was little word from Mercedes on whether they would produce another SL65 AMG or not. The current SL63 with the performance package easily exceeds the previous generation SL600 and is likely more than a match for the previous generation SL65 AMG (Black Series excluded). So it appears the V12 twin turbo M275 will be making another appearance but will it get any significant upgrades? If not, it almost seems redundant with the existence of the new twin turbo V8 with the performance package especially considering it will be more expensive.

    Car and Driver states that Mercedes feels V12 buyers are different from V8 buyers. It seems the main difference is that they are willing to spend more for a badge. We will know more when the car is revealed in New York in April.

    I dont think the V12 engine will be released for the new generation. AMG are pretty much happy with the new 5.5TT M157 engine

    So you are saying this report is incorrect?

    the 65amg will still be a V12. The 600's are gone. It wouldnt be a 65 unless there was a big V12 in it.

    I really dont know. Just posted what I thought. If I were a CEO in AMG, I wouldnt put the V12 in production. the new M157 cars are faster than the previous SL65's and they produce less emmision and have better fuel efficiency.

    The M157 already has a software package so the M275 makes sense especially considering a G65 is coming.

    They are all used by the crown prince's security team. They do need powerful four wheelers at hand, especially in the UAEClick here to enlarge
