Mercedes SL63 AMG 2009 – The F1 2009 Safety Car


I was practically drooling at the LCD TV screen when i was watching the F1 Melbourne yesterday. But i was not drooling at the F1 cars, rather at the Safety Car ; The Mercedes SL63 AMG !!

Most of the time people regard Mercedes as “old man’s car”, i would have to say otherwise for this one !

This baby is powered by a 6.3-litre V8 engine that churns out 525 hp and is capable of 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds.

I’d say that the new breed of Mercedes is really looking much much more sporty compared to last time.

Its riding on 19 Inch AMG Forged Light alloy wheels and total kerb weight for this car is at 1,750 KG.


At the transmission department is the AMGSPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.

Those that have paddock access this weekend @ Sepang Circuit will be able to see this car in close up, so jealous of them !!!
