About the SLS:

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (C197 / R197) is a front mid-engine, 2-seater, limited production grand tourer developed by the Mercedes-AMG division, with the assistance of David Coulthard. The car, which is the successor to the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and was described by Mercedes-Benz as a spiritual successor to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, mainly because it was inspired by the latter. SLS stands for "Super Leicht Sport" (Super Light Sport).

The SLS was the first Mercedes-Benz automobile designed and built from scratch entirely by AMG. Upon its introduction at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the SLS AMG's 563HP M159 engine was according to AMG "the world's most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine" ever produced.

As compared to its predecessor (the Mercedes-McLaren SLR), the SLS is per Mercedes-AMG head Tobias Moers, the faster car on the track, both in the hands of normal drivers as well as race car drivers. The Mercedes-McLaren SLR came in at 3,858 lbs. The SLS, however, has a curb weight of 3,569 lbs when equipped with the standard wheels.

The SLS AMG was designed by Mark Fetherston to be a modern 300SL Gullwing revival. The SLS AMG has also adapted the feature of the gull-wing doors that swing open upwards on gas struts, and must be closed manually as AMG engineers decided against the 90 lbs of additional weight that auto-closing systems would have added to the car. In case of a roll-over, the doors can be fully detached to allow the occupants to leave the vehicle.

The SLS AMG has won a number of design awards, including the 2010 red dot "best of the best" award, the iF product design award 2010 for the "Transportation Design" category, and the Auto Bild Design Award 2010 as "Europe's most attractive car". It is also the only automobile to have won the gold Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The SLS AMG was assembled largely by hand, with its chassis and aluminum body shell produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria and then transferred to Sindelfingen, Germany for assembly, with its engine being hand built by AMG in Affalterbach, Germany.

The SLS AMG was officially introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, and sales commenced in mid-2010 in Europe and in mid-2011 in the United States.

The 6.2-litre V8 engine (based on the M156 block) was modified to such an extent that AMG gave it a separate engine code-M159-to signify the more than 120 different modifications done to the engine as well as the addition of a dry-sump lubrication system to handle the car's high cornering speeds.

AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch automatic is connected to the engine through a lightweight carbon fiber driveshaft in a transaxle arrangement. Selectable driving modes include "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) or "M" (Manual; allowing the driver to change gears via paddles present on the steering column behind the steering wheel). A true manual transmission is not available.

Available in Coupe and Roadster body styles, the SLS AMG GT has the same torque and the same top speed as the regular SLS AMG but includes increased engine power output to 583HP in a 0-60 time of 3.4 versus 3.5 in the original SLS. A reduced transmission reaction time in the manual "M" transmission mode, AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension, selection of suspension modes via AMG DRIVE UNIT, 3 additional AMG light-alloy wheels options, Alcantara black interior upholstery, red seat belts, contrasting stitching on the AMG sports seats and the center console and the door panel lining in red, floor mats in red edging, high-gloss black AMG trim on the center console and door panel, high-gloss black edging on the adjustable cross-shaped air vents and the high-gloss real metal insert on the AMG Performance steering wheel with Alcantara grip, AMG instrument cluster with black faceplate, AMG designo Exclusive Style leather option, a diamond design with contrasting stitching, designo leather finish for the entire dashboard, the beltlines and door armrests, the handrest on the center console, AMG floor mats in black with porcelain leather edging, roof lining in Alcantara porcelain, and the parcel shelf or roll-over bar in 3 color combinations.

The SLS AMG GT completed a lap around the N�rburgring Nordschleife in under 7 minutes 30 seconds.
