The extremely rare SL73 AMG never appeared on the Mercedes-Benz price lists and remains little known. But when it was in production it was one of the most powerful cars to be built on the AMG line together with the race car derived CLK GTR road car.

The SL73 AMG was sold through AMG in 1995, and at 525 bhp (391 kW) it offered the most powerful V12 engine ever put into an SL up to that time. After a brief gap, the SL73 was offered again from 1998 to 2001, although the engine was slightly updated to be more reliable. The same 7.3L V12 was later used by Pagani in the Zonda. A total of 85 SL73 AMG roadsters were built. The SL73 was briefly reintroduced in September 1999 following the SL's end of life facelift and a limited number were produced up until December 2001.
