Till now, what we discovered about the car is that it has a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six or 4.0-litre V8, a high-powered plug-in-hybrid model that shares the GT63 E Performance’s power train.
The design of the car is sure to make you weak on your knees. The all-new 2022 Mercedes AMG SL63 features a narrower, more aggressive headlight and taillight design, a folding fabric roof, and an integrated rear spoiler.

The AMG SL63 will feature a Modular Sports Architecture, which means a stiffer chassis and a sportier suspension setup.
The AMG SL6 comes with a 4.0-litre V8 that produces up to 577 horsepower at 6,500 RPM and 2,500 – 4,500 RPM for 627 pound-feet (850 Nm). So, you can expect a 0-60mph speed of 3.2 seconds.
However, not much has been affirmed about the 2022 Mercedes AMG SL63 Performance yet; it is expected that Mercedes will feature two powertrains for the updated 2022 SL model.
What we know from Mercedes is that the SL63 will only come with a 9-speed automatic transmission, but an all-wheel-drive system shall be offered.
The 2022 AMG SL63 has adopted the new latest Mercedes design that features a narrow aggressive headlight and taillights that stretch to the middle of the rear.
It has quad-exhaust tips complemented by the air extractors, which are located right about the exhaust tips.
As with all Mercedes, the SL63 is believed to feature wood, leather, and metal trimmings.
Mercedes has decided to keep it a usual 2-doors convertible, but rather than using a complicated folding hardtop; the SL63 will feature a fabric roof to save weight and build more cargo space.
Let’s start with the display. The 2022 Mercedes AMG SL63 has a massive portrait-oriented 11.9-inch adjustable touchscreen infotainment system.
There’s a dashboard integrated 12.3-inches digital instrument cluster in front of the driver.
Coming to interior lights, it features a head-up display and ambient interior lighting that has up to 64 selectable colours, along with a Burmester sound system.
Though it looks like a 2-seater, the SL63 comes with two small-yet-usable rear seats, which technically makes it a 2+2 seater.
Though there is no official statement from Mercedes regarding the driver-assistance features, as per the experts at the Mercedes service center, the SL63 will feature:
- Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
- Adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode
