2025 Mercedes-AMG SL Gets 1,047 lb-ft of Torque

805 hp AMG SL

  • PHEV power makes SL most powerful yet

  • Big Merc roadster gets host of AMG upgrades

The big Mercedes roadster is more powerful than it ever has been before. The 2025 Mercedes-AMG SL 63 S E Performance keeps its V8 and now makes 805 hp and more than 1,000 lb-ft of torque thanks to its F1-inspired hybrid system.

Mercedes-AMG starts with its 4.0L twin-turbo V8. The engine makes 603 hp and 627 lb-ft, output levels we’ve seen before from the car.

Then AMG fits its E Performance drive unit on the rear axle. A permanently excited electric motor with a two-speed transmission that runs through a limited-slip differential. It adds 94 hp continuous and a peak of 201 horses. The 6.1 kWh battery gives the car a short electric-only range, but when you ask for full power it delivers. The battery can be charged by the engine, or by plugging into the wall.

Other AMG-specific treatments include Active Ride Control with active roll stabilization, rear axle steering, and AMG ceramic brakes. The performance upgrades are designed to make the AMG SL a high-performance machine and not just a luxury grand tourer.

The cabin has AMG upgrades as well, including AMG-specific gauges on the display and AMG Performance seats (with three massage programs). Mercedes-AMG will also offer a large number of choices for upholstery including leather and microfiber in an array of colours.

Mercedes-AMG says that the 2025 SL 63 S E Performance will go on sale late next year.
