Mercedes SLS AMG


mercedes-benz-sls-amgMercedes have created a monster with the SLS AMG, a 6.2 litre V8 putting out just under 600bhp, hitting 60mph in 3.7 seconds and stomping on to a staggering 199mph. There’s a ‘black’ version which hands it a further 60bhp bringing it up to 631bhp, the black version has also gone on a diet (probably a carb diet) and lost 70kg.

Inspired by the SLS AMG GT3 race car, the SLS AMG Black Series delivers truly extraordinary performance.

Not only does it generate a hefty 631hp – that’s 60hp more than the regular SLS AMG GT Coupé – but it’s also some 70kg lighter. As a result, the SLS AMG Black Series is even faster out of the blocks with a 0-62mph time of 3.6 seconds compared to the 3.7 seconds clocked by the SLS AMG GT Coupé.

Coupled with the AMG Speedshift DCT 7-speed sports transmission, AMG ride control suspension, electronically controlled AMG rear axle differential lock and AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system, it makes for an unforgettable driving experience.

The striking exterior reflects this dynamic, race-bred performance with a range of visual enhancements including AMG Black Series bodystyling and 19”/20” AMG forged bi-colour light alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin has a stripped-back, motorsport feel with AMG sports bucket seats and AMG carbon-fibre trim. Signature touches include the AMG performance steering wheel in tactile Alcantara© with a red marking at the 12 o’clock position.
