What in Lin’s name are you gonna do with 738 pound-feet of torque? Figure that out later. For now focus on how you’re gonna score a 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG. Packed with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 that generates 621 horsepower and yes, that insane torque, the SL65 AMG’s all-aluminum body means it’s a couple of hundred pounds lighter than last year’s model. Look for the debut of this rocket roadster at next month’s New York Auto Show, and in the meantime, start thinking about what you’re gonna do with all that torque.

Feast your greedy peepers on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL, debuting in virtual form right here before it’s unveiled in the flesh (OK, steel) at the Detroit Auto Show in January. A glance at the hood reveals the new style, along with the bi-xenon headlamps with fiber optic accents and daytime running LEDs set low in the bumper. Inside you’ll find supreme luxury, with leather, wood and carbon fiber forming a formidable trio. Choose your roof from either standard glass or the Magic Sky Control available on the SLK. The SL550 will come with a twin-turbocharged and direct-injected 4.6-liter V8, capable of 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. I’m assuming 0-60 in 4.5 seconds is fast enough for you?
