Overview Information

Mercedes' latest super car is the SLS AMG. Drawing on their heritage, Mercedes-Benz designers have created a car with gull wing doors evoking the classic 300SL of the 50s.

The two passenger interior is tight on room, but includes bubbles in the ceiling to accommodate taller drivers. The SLS AMG is powered by a hand-built 6.2l V8 engine rated at 583-bhp. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission is the only available transmission. With a starting price of $200,000, the flagship SLS AMG has a modest price tag considering the asking price of other cars in the segment and in Mercedes' own product range.
