The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was first unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show with European sales commencing in mid-2010; U.S. sales began the following year. As the spiritual successor to the legendary 300 SL, this was the first car developed exclusively by Mercedes-Benz’s in-house tuner AMG. Initially released in “gullwing” coupe configuration, the roadster version was unveiled at Frankfurt in 2011 with production continuing through 2014. The SLS was assembled largely by hand; its chassis and aluminum body shell produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, the engine by AMG in Affalterbach, Germany, and final assembly in Mercedes’ Sindelfingen facility. When introduced, its 6.2-liter 563-bhp twin-cam V-8 was described by AMG as the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated engine.
This stunning 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is finished in Obsidian Black with black convertible roof over red/black exclusive leather interior. The car rides on 10-spoke AMG wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires. Additional features include aluminum AMG trim; red painted AMG calipers; an automatic rear spoiler; dual-zone climate control; COMAND system with navigation; backup camera with parking sensors; AMG ride control performance suspension; bi-xenon headlights; blind-spot monitoring; AirScarf; and more. The car has covered 12,909 kilometers (~8,022 miles) at time of cataloguing and is accompanied by first aid kit. This SLS AMG Roadster is an exceptional combination of brawn and beauty, a car capable of a top speed of 197 mph.
