Track-humbling performance in a dinner jacket: New SLS AMG GT combines race winning heritage with exclusive luxury
- Horsepower boosted to maximum 591hp output
- Torque increased to 590Nm
With a maximum output of 591 hp the optimised AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission and the redeveloped AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension, the SLS AMG GT – which is available both as a Coupé and a Roadster – has raised the bar even higher. As a further highlight, the new high-quality AMG designo Exclusive STYLE leather is now also available as an optional extra for all SLS AMG models.
Masculine and decidedly athletic with darkened headlamps and tail lights as well as red-painted brake callipers, the new SLS AMG GT also features a unique look. The wing-shaped cross fins and the star recess in the radiator grille retain a high-gloss finish, as do the exterior mirrors and the fins on the bonnet and wings. The AMG logo on the right of the boot lid also features the additional letters "GT", letting other road admirers know this is no ordinary SLS AMG.
Frank Bernthaler, Director, Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Middle East & Levant, said: "The new SLS AMG GT demonstrates the incredible potential that lies in AMG's super sports cars. With even higher levels of performance and design details, the SLS AMG GT excites the moment one lays eyes on it, reaching a roaring crescendo as it demonstrates its prowess and performance on the race track."
