Explore The New Merc SLS AMG Merc’s Latest Wows All: Much wowed by all, the Mercedes SLS AMG has come up as a modern design by Gordon Wagener (who’s had a 300SL in his family once), of the earlier Mercedes 300SL Gullwing {1954-57}. The two-seater car has got quite short of the rear part but is equipped with a long bonnet, hence shifting the passenger compartment to just above the rear axle. The SLS AMG has introduced a change in the door-design as well after SLR as it adheres to the wing doors that are designed to swing open straight upwards on gas struts, unlike the SLR where doors used to open in a up-forward fashion. The doors are designed to be closed manually as the automatic system required an additional system that would have added 41 kg (almost 90 pounds) to the vehicle’s design, hence opted against by AMG engineers. The doors can always be totally detached to help the occupants leave the vehicle, in any case of a roll-over.

SLS AMG V-8: Under the SLS AMG’s long hood is a version of the V-8 that we’ve seen powering every Mercedes of this generation with an AMG badge. Although, this time the engine actually displaces 6.3-liters. Output has been tuned to 563 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. The extra power comes partially from all-new intake and exhaust systems and a rearranged valve train. Power flows through a SpeedShift 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and down an exotic carbon fiber driveshaft before meeting the road at the rear wheels. The gearbox features three driving modes for Comfort, Sport, and Sport plus, as well as an automated manual mode. Sixty miles per hour happens in a blistering 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 197 mph. The exterior aluminum body is supplied by Magna International. Next to the CL65 AMG 40th Anniversary Edition, this is the only road going Mercedes with the ALUBEAM paint available, at an extra cost of almost €12.000 in Germany. Other colors include both metallic as matte colors, such as Designo Magno Kashmir, the matte paint known from the SL63 AMG IWC edition.

SLS AMG features: The SLS AMG has a rearing which will pop up at high speeds for stability and handling, and when braking. Standard transmission is AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed Get rag dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission through a lightweight carbon fiber driveshaft. Selectable driving modes include “C” (Controlled Efficiency), “S” (Sport), “S+” (Sport plus) or “M” (Manual). We will have 4 different versions of the SLS AMG available to choose from. The one to be launched first is the coupe with the gulling doors as we see it on the web now. For 2011-2013, Mercedes will also be launching a roadster (with conventional doors and a soft-top), an electric powered version (most likely to be a coupe), and there will be a Black Series version, which will see its weight being reduced by as much as 300kg. The SLS-e will use electric power train components. It will include 4 electric motors (one on each wheel) with combined ratings of 392 kW (525bhp) and 880 N·m (650 lb·ft), liquid-cooled 400V lithium-ion battery rated 48 kWh and a capacity of 40 Ah. The battery will be supplied by Deutsche Accumotive GmbH & Co. KG, a joint venture between Daimler AG and Evonik Industries AG.
