Mercedes-Benz SL70, SL72, SL73 AMG (R129) 1995/1998-2001

This thread is designated for the rare V12 AMG 7* models.


SL 72 AMG
Extremely rare was the SL 72 AMG, with a 7.1 litres (7,055 cc) engine, sold through Mercedes-AMG in 1995, and offering the most powerful V12 engine ever put into an SL up to that time with 510 PS (380 kW; 500 hp).

SL 73 AMG
After a brief hiatus, the SL 73 AMG was offered with the new M297 engine 7.3 litres (7,291 cc) from 1997 to 2001, with a bore x stroke of 91.5 mm × 92.4 mm (3.60 in × 3.64 in) DOHC 4 valves per cylinder, fuel fed by naturally aspirated Bosch HFM fuel injection and a compression ratio of 10.5:1, producing 386 kW (525 PS; 518 bhp) at 5,500 rpm and 750 N⋅m (553 lbf⋅ft) at 4,000 rpm of torque, which was later used also by Pagani in the Zonda, enabling the SL 73 to set off from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in no longer than 4.5 seconds, while achieving a top speed of above-320 km/h (199 mph). Only 85 cars were made.

SL 70 AMG
Also very rare is the SL 70 AMG which was powered by a 7.1 litres (7,055 cc) V12 engine developing 496 PS (365 kW; 489 bhp) at 5,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 720 N⋅m (531 lbf⋅ft) at 3,,900 rpm. It was a bored out version of M120 6.0 V12 and with a longer stroke. Produced between 1996 and 1997 in 150 units.

Ah the SL730. I remember this. IIRC there weren't many of these around and I guy even taught his 15year-old daughter to drive in one.
It also used to the same engine that went on to be used in the Zonda.

Whoaa?! That's an interesting fact. Imagine the torque of that thing. You could probably tow an elephant vertically up a cliff face.

the SL65 is more torky as we all know, its naturally aspirated wide spread torque which makes this more attractive, plus the Zonda one sounds fantastic!

You have to love Mercedes' understatement with this one. Only they could shove a single twin exhaust on a 7.3 SL. Reminds me of their CLK500 with one exhaust pipe- and there are Alfa Romeo, shoving quad pipes on all models of the Brera...

I think there the option of a glass roof in the current SL.

Quad exhausts are for kids with Ferraris. Understatement ftw.

The W140 S600 also has same engine as the Zonda.

The CLK's had 2 pipes but concealed within the chrome tipped one, if you look closely you can see that there are 2 pipes in there.
