Väth is working on the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, and how! Since September 2012, the open SL has been known as the SL 65 AMG Delivered with a rich 6,0-liter V12 gasoline engine including twin-turbo charging and an output of 463 kW (630 hp). The SL is already pushing a crazy 1000 Nm torque at 2300-4300 rpm. to the rear wheels which is an announcement. But whoever thinks of the V12 or the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic is already demanding the highest possible level, and then VÄTH Automobiltechnik GmbH shows what is really in the Stuttgart top model. VÄTH restricts itself to exactly what is important, the increase in performance and the performance of the SL, which weighs just under 2 tons. The tuner pushes the power of 65PS with the tuning kit V630 (463 kW) on whopping 700 PS ( 515 kW) and a maximum torque of 1.148 Nm which must be limited to 1.000 Nm in view of the durability of the automatic.
700PS & 1.148NM torque
In addition, there is a flap rear silencer system made of VA stainless steel which leaves nothing to be desired with three sound levels. Optical changes are based on a lowering of the ABC sports suspension and a set of three-part Väth forged wheels with a black star in the dimensions 10,0 x 20 inches with 265 tires at the front and 305 rollers at the rear. Equipped in this way, the SL can, depending on the tire approval, occupy the left lane of the motorway at a top speed of 325 km / h and shouldn't have anyone in the rearview mirror who wants to pass the Stuttgart one. The Väth team released the potent 65 yesterday and we are of course happy to show you the pictures. So if you have been secretly thinking of buying a thick V12 SL65 for a long time, or if you are already a happy owner, Väth is definitely an interesting starting point when it comes to differentiating the vehicle from the production model and injecting significantly more power.
As for the changes in optics and technology, we have listed all the important details in a small summary for you below. If you discover more changes that we have missed, please use our comment box and let us know, we will then add them to the article as soon as possible.
