Mercedes Benz is again at the forefront of being daring in the sports coupe section. The 2011 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG just looks stunning with its prominent “gullwing” doors and noticeable long hood, the SLS AMG just looks like no other Mercedes Benz. Mercedes used all aluminum to build its body, achieving lightness and rigidity at the same time. The hood is packed with a 6.3 liter 32 valve V8 engine, the SLS AMG may look a little bit subtle but it can do a 0-100 km in just 3.8 sec. Top speed is 317 kph and has an astonishing response from the engine because Mercedes placed a double clutch 7 speed automatic AMG Speedshift sports transmission, this allows the SLS AMG to react almost instantly to what the car needs.
The SLS AMG is a car built for the tracks and on the roads. It handles smoothly and has a lot of grip thanks to the large wheel on its back and to the oversized AMG high performance ceramic brakes. The interior gives you a classic feel and Mercedes Benz didn’t try to put too much buttons or knobs on the front panels. This will be the official safety car of the 2010 F1 world championships and Mercedes Benz is really living up to their image. The Mercedes SLS AMG is not just about speed it’s about beauty being reborn.
