2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Written by mdvaldosta on January 6, 2010

AMG claims this car shares no structural elements with other Benzes, and built it just to show how sporty they can build a Mercedes. We believe it, heck – watching the video below I’m half expecting it to “Transform” into something inspired by Optimus Prime. The car looks… awe inspiring. It sounds… amazing.

A Cockpit. An Engine. Two Wings. Is This Still A Car?

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. It’s got a cockpit, gullwing doors and an engine that claims a 3.7 second 0-60 and a top speed of nearly 200 miles per hour. As the video suggests, is it still a car? With a 6.3 liter V8 engine pumping out 563 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, we’re not sure.

This thing is sexy, and expensive! The ‘official’ MSRP hasn’t been published, but it’s estimated to be around $250,000 USD.

What an awesome car! I can’t imagine doing a 360 twist though, my stomache is too weak. Just need that lottery win now :)

I’d think from the performance standpoint the 911 Turbo is a much better buy, and it still can manage 8/10ths of the GT the SLS is.

Very cool car, this is the predecessor from the classic? Got the same doors. Priceless feature!
