Our covert operatives have managed to catch several new images of the 2012 (or 2013) Mercedes SL 63 AMG.

Spied near the Nürburgring, the heavily camouflaged prototype features a long bonnet, AMG wheels, cross-drilled brakes, and a folding metal roof. Inside, the interior will sport a redesigned steering wheel, an SLS-inspired center console, and an improved COMAND system.

Like the 2011 S 63 AMG, power will be provided by a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 with 544 PS (400 kW / 536 hp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. If that doesn't suit your need for speed, the company will offer an AMG Performance Package which will enable the engine to churn out 571 PS (420 kW / 563 hp) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft).
