The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a front-engine, RWD supercar equipped with gullwing doors. Its name stands for "Sport Leicht Super" (lit. Sport Light Super). Between 2009 and 2014, the SLS AMG received other variants, including a high-performance Black Series variant.
The most iconic Mercedes sportscar ever is back. The original Gullwing, the 300SL, was a barely tamed racecar. Its 21st century successor is a supercar of the first order, and it’s also the first vehicle totally designed by the high-performance Mercedes–AMG GmbH group. While the SLS AMG is inspired by the original car, sporting similar gullwing doors and a long hood, short deck profile, under the skin it’s totally modern. There’s a high-tech aluminum chassis that weighs only 530 lbs., and an AMG-tuned 6.3-liter V8 nestled up front that puts out a stunning 571 peak horsepower, giving it performance the original Gullwing could only dream of. If the formidable power and throaty exhaust note aren’t enough, it’s comfortable enough to scoot across continents without breaking a sweat. A highly civilized car with ferocious acceleration, it’s the perfect grand tourer for the modern era.
The first Mercedes-Benz designed and built from scratch entirely by AMG, the SLS AMG features a 6.2 L (6,208 cc) M159 V8 engine producing 571 hp (426 kW) and 479 ft·lb (650 N·m), which is a variant of the M156 engine and Mercedes-Benz claimed would be "the world's most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine" ever produced. The SLS AMG was also Mercedes-Benz's last naturally aspirated sports/supercar.
The SLS comes with only a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that uses a carbon fiber shaft, and using a lightweight aluminum frame, the car weighs only 3571 lb (1620 kg) with standard wheels.
