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.
Finished in Obsidian Black with tan convertible roof over Sand Beige/Black exclusive leather interior, the SLS Roadster is an exceptional combination of brawn and beauty. As the consignor so aptly describes, “The 6.2-liter V-8 roars to life, its sonorous bark reminding you of AMG’s ethos: raw performance. The exhaust pops and crackles as you blip through the gears with the seven-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch transmission, responding quickly or smoothly depending on what mode you select.”
Features and options include dual-zone automatic air conditioning; Bluetooth wireless connectivity; COMAND system with navigation; backup camera with parking sensors; power heated AMG Sport bucket seats with driver memory presets; selectable suspension modes; automatic extending rear spoiler; AMG Performance steering wheel; bi-xenon headlights; rain-sensing wipers; blind-spot alert; AM/FM/6-Disc CD/DVD/MP3/XM/HD; AirScarf; and more.
It is estimated that Mercedes-Benz produced just 6,500 SLS AMGs (in both coupe and roadster styles) with 2,734 sold in the U.S. With just 7,000 miles, this two-owner car is in immaculate condition and practically brand new. A clean CARFAX report is included for added certainty.
Ready for your immediate enjoyment, this is Mercedes-Benz luxury and performance at its finest.
