The gull-wing doors lend the SLS AMG its unique appearance and underline the vehicle’s spectacular character. They also make entering and exiting the SLS AMG cockpit particularly comfortable
The SLS AMG unites the motorsport experience of Mercedes-AMG with the strengths of Mercedes-Benz. The result is the type of high-performance technology that dreams are made of. Key features of the gull-wing model include a lightweight design. And for the first time a Mercedes vehicle boasts a chassis and body built entirely of aluminium.
The SLS AMG symbolises unadulterated driving pleasure. This is possible thanks to the advanced AMG 6.3 litre V8 front-mid engine. Dry sump lubrication, which does not require a conventional oil sump, allows a significantly lower engine mounting position. An extremely rigid bodyshell and optimum weight distribution with a low centre of gravity also make a key contribution.
The design of the SLS AMG gull-wing is unmistakable, boasting a perfect combination of extended bonnet, muscular rear section and distinctive gull-wing doors – all of which are testimony to its appeal and elegant sports styling.
The puristic interior of the SLS AMG embraces lightweight design, dynamic performance and pure emotion. Opening the unique gull-wing doors offers a clear view of the interior and its clean sports styling. The range of fine materials used includes nappa leather and real metal trim (real carbon-fibre trim available as an option).
