Mercedes does not seem very keen on the idea of a roadster AMG GT, so if you want a drop-top super GT with a three-pointed star on its nose, your best bet still is the mighty Mercedes SLS Roadster. But if the standard car doesn’t grab you like you would like, we have a tricked out version here that might.

What we have here is the TAG Motorsports Mercedes SLS Roadster which, to all intents and purposes, is the ultimate expression of what the SLS can be. The car features subtle visual and chassis modifications as well as a meaty performance package that makes it more lively, and therefore more fun, than the regular version.

In terms of power and performance, TAG Motorsports Mercedes SLS Roadster benefits from a RENNtech R2 performance kit including ECU upgrade, stainless steel long tube headers with 200 cell cats, and X-Pipe. It ups the output of the 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V8 from 563 horsepower to 620 horsepower with 522 lb-ft of torque.

In an effort to keep the beast in check after giving it 80 more horses to devour, the tuner has fitted the SLS with H&R lowering springs and a set of wide ADV5.0 MV2CS measuring 20 inch up front and 21 inch out back. The wheels (wrapped with 265 tires on the front and 305 on the rear) are finished in matte brown which complements nicely the black-out cosmetic package of the body.
