I’ve just done the Electric SLS article and came across this! Apparently this is the first official picture of the Mercedes SLS AMG, one of the most anticipated cars to launch and the replacement for the mighty McLaren Mercedes SLR, with styling cues inherited from the legendary 300 SL.
The car’s retro-classic shape is something very desirable amongst all those glitzy and chintzy modern supercars, and those roof-hinged doors are just magnificent. It’s not just a great design though, SLS AMG is a proper supercar. Using a modified version of AMG’s 6.3 liter normally aspirated V8 it develops 571 hp and 650 nm of torque with 0 to 100 under 4 seconds and top speed of over 320km/h. The best thing about the SLS is that, unlike its McLaren brother, it is much more accessible. It is expected to go for 160,000 Euros.
We’ll keep you posted on any updates…
