2012 Mercedes SLS AMG | Frankfurt Auto Show

With great power comes great responsibility. And Mercedes-Benz does so to maintain there responsibilities.

Built around an aluminum frame, the AMG tuned 6.2 liter V8 pushes 563 horsepower with 479 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 is rated under 3.7 seconds and the topless roadster has a top speed of 197 mph!

Another feature that debuts on the ragtop is the “AMG Performance Media” system that combines driver-programmable displays for the car’s navigation-, climate-, and sound-system controls with a new suite of performance-oriented displays. The latter include lateral and linear acceleration figures, engine data, and lap times. On the touchy-feely side of the order form is a new Designo package with exclusive brown paint, leather-lined roll bars, and brown mono- or two-tone leather upholstery. Also available on the SLS AMG roadster is AMG Sepang brown metallic paint and matte black 10-spoke wheels.

 Mercedes will release U.S. pricing sometime closer to the car’s market introduction this fall, but expect prices to start at$225K, roughly $20K more than the coupe commands.
