When AMG joined the DaimlerChrysler team in 1990, Mercedes-Benz began regularly rolling out performance cars with luxury features that were typically reserved for less-powerful vehicles. The 2013 S65 AMG is just another astounding offering by the Mercedes-Benz and AMG team.
For the 2013 model year, the S65 AMG is little more than a carryover from 2012, as the only change is the addition of the 2012 model year’s Premium 2 option – multi-contour seats, parking sensors, rearview camera, and keyless entry and ignition – as standard equipment.
The 2013 Mercedes Benz SL65 AMG only comes in one trim, but there are enough standard features and options to keep most buyers happy.
Although the styling of the SL65 AMG is already distinctive, options such as an exterior carbon-fiber package adds carbon-fiber accents to the front bumper cross-strut, side mirror caps and the trunklid spoiler for the price of $3,570. Should you choose to upgrade the already-stellar brakes to a carbon-ceramic system, be prepared to add $12,625 to the bottom line. The interior is offered in a number of trims, including: carbon-fiber, burl walnut and black ash. Also, the stock silver 19-inch front/20-inch rear forged wheel can be replaced by black ones for an additional $500.
