The updated vehicle may look bulkier but it's not as heavy thanks to lightweight aluminum that is used to make aircrafts.

The new 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. Although it has a larger body compared to its previous model, it’s actually 200 pounds lighter as a result of engineered aluminum parts on the inside. The material featured is also used to build aircrafts for lightweight performance. The SL63 sports car includes an impressive twin-turbocharged V8 engine and can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds.
