With the epicenter of New York City business as the backdrop, Mercedes-Benz showcases the all-new 2013 SL63 AMG, featuring show stopping power to business professionals eager to add some excitement to their daily driving time.

The 6th generation of the iconic Mercedes-Benz Roadster stays true to its namesake with an all-new aluminum bodyshell, weighing nearly 300 pounds less than its predecessor. Packed with innovative technology, this vehicle includes a unique FrontBass system, which turns the SL into a concert hall, and the debut of mbrace2, the next generation of telematics, gives drivers top-of-the-line features related to safety, infotainment, personal assistance, and vehicle care.
For the whole family, Mercedes-Benz is showcasing the all-new seven passenger GL-Class, the leading luxury full-size SUV.
