Mercedes SLS officially replaces the old SLS in Mercedes showrooms, offering a slightly better experience than the original car. The SLS GT, which also plays the role of Formula 1 safety car now, has 30 more horsepower, smoked lights, and new AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension, as well as new options for the interior.
So with 435 kW (591 hp) and 650 Nm of torque to spare, the GT accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and can reach a speed of 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. The top speed is 320 km/h (electronically limited).
The new suspension system features stiffer spring/damper tuning, and still offers different modes including Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus, plus a new software for auto damping adjustment on the go depending on the speed and road surface.
Now, the pricing. The Mercedes SLS GT Coupe starts from 204,680 euros and the SLS GT Roadster from 213,010 euros. Options include a Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG high-end surround sound system costing 7080.50 euros, and AMG designo Exclusive STYLE leather for 5771.50 euros.
Mercedes AMG designo leather package: The lavishly finished diamond design features not only on the AMG sports seats, but also on the door centre panels. Seams finished in contrasting colours create highlights and underscore the high-quality, hand-finished nature of these new full-leather appointments. Available colour combinations include mocha brown/porcelain, titanium grey pearl/porcelain and mystic red/porcelain.
