Jun, 18 2012 No Of Four-Door SLS AMG, Says AMG

Mercedes has a wide range of cars, but only a handful of the in its history qualify as true

The original 300SL Gullwing was the early-2000s SLR another. Fuse together—the heritage cues of the the epic performance of the latter—and you the SLS AMG, now offered in either or roadster form, and a perfect 10 at MotorAuthority.

In either body the SLS AMG is a supersonic ambassador for the AMG brand a brand. And both are more styled than some of the cars in the class—the GT-R, the The gullwing rocks out when its are open, casting an unearthly but the appeal wears off when the close and when it’s in profile, or from the rear The balance is lacking—but it all comes focus on the Roadster, which off the signature doors and in doing so, more lithe, more in its proportions, with hints of Arrow Benzes and bullet-nose in its profile. The sparing bits of design in the cockpit are put to smart a faint echo of the three-pointed in the gimballed metal air vents—and woven in
