Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is one of a kind sport car that will fulfill any car enthusiasts’ wildest dream. It is developed as a replacement for Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren line. Known to be the first ever automobile to be designed in house by AMG, it is stylish, contemporary, luxurious and sporty. According to them, it is one of the best cars they have ever designed and manufactured.
It is hard not to notice the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG on the road. If you are somewhat familiar with the Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing, then, you can imagine how this one of a kind car looks like but only better. One of the main attractions about the car is the gullwing doors. Although the car seat is pretty low but the door can be swung open at 70 degrees to enable a wide angle for easy entry and exit. It needs little effort to open and close these winged-like doors and it is also fully operational within the width of a normal garage. Besides that, in case of roll over, after a detection of ten to fifteen milliseconds, the doors can be fully detached to allow the passengers a swift escape. ‘Car and Driver’ magazine in its July 2010 issue has raved about this safety feature in its’ Mercedes Benz SLS AMG reviews.
Another interesting factor about Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is the concept behind this car. The keyword behind each and every design of this car is lightweight. This word is put into action throughout the entire car. From the body frame to the gullwing doors and the wheels, this car is made to be sturdy but at the same time, as light as possible to maintain maximum speed and acceleration. Take for instance, the doors. They have to be opened and closed manually because the engineers decide against installing the auto-closing systems as this will add another 90 pounds to the car.
Finally, the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is a great car with excellent innovative designs. It has a long hood and passengers are seated towards the rear axle of the car. At first glance, there seems to be no spoilers. However, its’ rear wing is integrated into the boot lid and will extend automatically when it reaches 75mph. Inside, you can find 4 driving modes and speedometers that are familiar to F1 racers. It also carries a powerful 6.2L V8 engine. The Mercedes Benz SLS AMG MRSP is priced at $183 000.
