AMG 6.3 litre V8 front-mounted mid-engine vehicle

You won't find another engine with this performance data: the enhanced AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine makes the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster FINAL EDITION one of the most powerful sports cars in its segment.
The V8 high-speed engine with a 6208 cc capacity is a completely modified version of the AMG 6.3 litre V8 basic engine. The 8-cylinder engine responds to the slightest touch of the accelerator with superb agility across the entire engine speed range and displays the typical features of a high-performance racing engine.

Key information at a glance:

  • Impressive performance: 435 kilowatts[1] at 6800 rpm
  • Outstanding power delivery: maximum torque rating 650 newton metres at 4750 rpm
  • Unmatched: the most powerful series-production 8-cylinder naturally aspirated engine in the world
  • More power from more air: performance has been boosted by completely redeveloping the intake system and reworking the valve assembly and camshafts
  • Reduced to a minimum: despite the increased demands on it, the engine's weight has been reduced to 206 kilograms through a series of targeted weight optimisation measures.
  • Unrivalled performance: when it comes to the power/weight ratio, the AMG 6.3 Litre V8 engine leads the way compared with series-production sports cars built by competitor manufacturers
  • Racing car performance: the Roadster accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and achieves a top speed of 320 km/h
  • Lower centre of gravity: lowering the vehicle's centre of gravity allows outstanding lateral acceleration when cornering and generates excitingly dynamic handling
