The new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG

The SL 65 AMG is the first model to feature the new AMG brand face. The two elements which dominate the form – the radiator grille and the lower cooling air intake – are retained but in reinterpreted form which gives them a more distinctive identity. The central styling feature is the new “twin blade” radiator grille in high-sheen chrome. Also the lower cross strut in the front apron is finished in high-sheen chrome and is given a perceived sense of depth by the gap above it. The “twin blade” radiator grille and lower cross strut are the two complementary styling elements which underline the new AMG brand face – a look which will be picked up by the styling of future AMG models and so further increase the recognition value of the AMG performance brand.
