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.

With each new Mercedes-Benz make and model, we’ve come to expect increased power, improved efficiency, and a luxury vehicle that is as close to perfect as it gets. And the new ML63 is no exception. Set to debut at this week’s Los Angeles Auto Show, the ML63 is Mercedes’ next vehicle to receive the twin turbo-charged 5.5 liter V8 biturbo engine. Throwing down a base 518 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, you can up those numbers to 550 and 560 respectively with the optional AMG Performance Package. That’ll raise the SUV’s top speed from 155 to an instant microdermabrasion 174 miles per hour. Oh, and the ML63 will take your from 0 to 60 in just 4.6 seconds. That’s faster than you can say, “Mercedes-Benz. The Future of the Automobile Engineered to move the human spirit.” Because that tagline is long. Very long.
