The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG launched the era of modern Mercedes-Benz super cars as the first model developed exclusively by Mercedes-Benz in-house tuner AMG. It would debut in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, initially in “gullwing” coupe specification, as a modern-day homage to the iconic Mercedes 300 SL. Upon its release, it featured a hand-built 6.2-liter M159 V-8 engine, which Mercedes claimed at the time was the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated series-production engine ever made. With its stunning exterior made mostly of aluminum, the SLS AMG went on to win the gold Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany, the only vehicle to be presented with this accolade.
Mercedes-Benz would follow in 2011 with the release of the Roadster, which offered a luxurious, open-top motoring experience to balance its blistering acceleration and muscular V-8 exhaust note. Following in the footsteps of its 300 SL Roadster predecessor, it featured conventional doors and incorporated additional chassis strengthening to compensate for the absence of a fixed roof. The Roadster variant would continue to be sold through 2014, including a mid-cycle refresh dubbed the “GT,” which increased output to 583 horsepower—up 20 horsepower from the initial launch—along with revised gear ratios for an even more engaging driving experience.
This stunning Roadster is finished in the very color which adorned the launch car, Alubeam Silver, complimented by a two-tone Designo Exclusive Red and Black leather interior. Other notable options include high-gloss interior carbon-fiber trim, a Bang & Olufsen 1,000-watt sound system, and AMG forged wheels in black.
With just 502 miles at the time of cataloguing, this SLS AMG GT Roadster has seen extremely minimal use from its sole previous owner. Well-specified, rare, and offering a level of performance and luxury that rival even the latest supercars, this low-mileage SLS AMG is sure to be a most welcome acquisition for marque enthusiasts or anyone seeking a supercar as rewarding to drive on-circuit as it is every day or over long distances.
