For the 2013 model the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT replaces the SLS AMG models GT. It denotes a more powerful a recalibrated AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT seven-speed transmission and modified AMG Adaptive

The flagship supercar of the auto broadest product lineup, the SLS AMG GT is as a coupe with dramatic doors or a convertible model a retractable cloth top and conventionally doors. The Mercedes-Benz design and standard-bearer, the limited-production SLS AMG was the first-ever car and developed from the ground up by the company’s high-performance division.

The AMG engine in the 2013 SLS AMG GT is rated at 583 hp and 479 of torque, up 20 horsepower over year’s version. For 2013, the GT also comes with headlights and taillights, red brake a unique 10-spoke wheel matte black inlay and a black finish on the front and outside mirrors as well as the on the hood and fenders. New interior include red seatbelts, red contrast and Alcantara upholstery.

Gullwing and Aluminum Space Frame

or gullwing coupe, the SLS AMG GT features a aluminum space-frame body gullwing doors and a 6.3-liter V8 engine. With its front-mid and rear-mounted, dual-clutch, seven-speed the compelling SLS AMG GT boasts ideal distribution of 47-53. Combined double-wishbone sport suspension, its distribution and low center of gravity race-car-like handling.

Its silhouette is by a long front hood, body overhangs, low greenhouse and a tail section. Along a wide front grille sports a large Mercedes-Benz and a wing-like lamella, the SLS AMG GT is reminiscent of the 300SL gullwing coupe of the

0-to-60 MPH in Less Than Seconds

The SLS AMG GT can accelerate from 0 to 60 per hour in only 3.7 seconds, an electronically limited top speed of 197 Designed from the ground up by the 6.3-liter V8 powerplant in the Mercedes-Benz SLS an entirely new engine family, internally by the designation M159.

on valuable insight from years of motor racing, than 120 components were in the development of the SLS AMG GT engine. With 583 hp and 479 of torque, the engine is one of the world’s powerful naturally aspirated V8s in

A Top As Fast as the Car

The soft top on the SLS AMG GT roadster can be in only 11 seconds. A button at the of the center armrest operates the top, which can be opened or when the car is moving at speeds up to 31 The top is available in three colors – red or beige – to complement nine colors and eight interior

The frame of the triple-layer fabric top is a chosen combination of magnesium, and steel, which contributes to the extraordinarily low center of gravity. A window of single-layer safety is seamlessly bonded to the top, helps minimize wind A long water channel each side of the top directs water to the underside of the car. capacity is 6.1 cubic feet the roof closed or open, the same as the SLS AMG GT gullwing coupe cubic feet).

Convertible and Body Stiffness

To ensure the handling and driving pleasure as the coupe, the SLS AMG GT roadster has thicker sill members; additional between the dash cross center tunnel and windshield and a special strut between the top compartment and the rear axle. also a special cross behind the seats to support the roll bars. All in all, the aluminum spaceframe for the convertible weighs only 4.5 pounds than the coupe.

Dry Sump for Lower Center of Gravity

A engine lubrication system – in the auto industry – along a front-mid engine located behind the front wheels, with a rear-mounted transaxle, all to impressive vehicle handling. Two oil make it possible to store oil in a separate tank, eliminating a oil pan or sump and allowing the engine to be lower in the body for an extremely low of gravity. More than 14 of oil circulate through the SLS engine. A pump constantly scavenges oil the bottom of the crankshaft chamber and the heads, pumping it into the oil in front of the engine. With no of oil at crankshaft level, this actually adds horsepower by reducing oil drag on the spinning A second engine oil pump oil out of the tank and pressure-feeds it throughout the to lubricate the bearings.

When oil travels to one side hard cornering, conventional systems can lose oil pressure and the engine, but the SLS two-pump system its remote reservoir ensures a supply of oil even under lateral loads.

Lightweight Pistons

Forged aluminum are another special feature of the SLS Stronger than conventional pistons, forged pistons are 1.1 pounds lighter. Metered in the crankcase spray cooling oil on the of the pistons.

One Man, One Engine – Hand Craftsmanship

Each new AMG is hand-assembled by an expert craftsman at in Affalterbach, Germany. Mercedes-AMG a philosophy of one man, one engine, means a single technician – by the signature plate affixed to the – is responsible for the complete assembly of an AMG engine from start to

With the utmost care, the installs each and every – from the crankshaft, connecting and pistons to the intake system, harness and oil fill-up. Each new is test-run to ensure consistent and maximum performance.

Rear-Mounted AMG DCT Transmission

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT features an AMG dual-clutch seven-speed transaxle, a manual gearbox with automatic shifting and two clutches control odd and even gears. for full-power shifting, the new transaxle a rear final drive, and a mechanical differential lock.

Its transmission and final drive provide ideal 47-53 weight distribution – a key factor to the car’s outstanding handling. The transaxle is solidly connected to the by a torque tube in which a driveshaft rotates at engine

Dual-Clutch Seven-Speed Gearbox

The two control power to shafts hold seven pairs of gears. One shaft holds all the gears, and the other shaft has the gears. As a result of this shifts can be made without power by electronically applying one exactly when the other is disengaged. The next gear is pre-selected electronically while its is disengaged, making it ready for an full-power shift as soon as its is engaged.

Instant Shifts,

Mounted on the center console, a T-handle serves as an electronic lever for the AMG E-DRIVE unit, also includes a shift knob and buttons for choosing ESP and AMG modes, starting the engine and the rear wing. One touch on the T-handle engages drive, a touch forward engages When the car is stopped, pushing the P engages the park lock, also happens automatically the engine is turned off.

The knob on the AMG E-DRIVE unit can the RACE START feature and drive modes – Comfort, Sport Plus and Manual. AMG paddles on the back of the steering control manual shifting. An rev-matching feature makes the SLS AMG smooth, yet even more Rev-matching automatically meters speed so that downshifts are – no lunging or jerking, even in turns or heavy braking.

Aluminum Double Wishbone

Complementing its prodigious power, the SLS AMG GT features double wishbones and rods at all four wheels – a that has proven itself in right up to Formula One competition. An AMG Sport Suspension provides controlled damping at the touch of a With a button on the AMG DRIVE the driver can choose Comfort, and Sport Plus.

Unlike suspensions, the shock absorber in a arrangement does not perform duty to help locate the making the suspension stronger and the shock absorber to work of any wheel deflection. All eight and the four steering knuckles are of forged aluminum, minimizing weight, which improves and steering response. To minimize roll during hard a thick but lightweight tubular bar is fitted up front, while the suspension comes with a two-piece bar.

Two-Piece AMG Disc Brakes

To its high-speed capability, the SLS AMG GT comes vented disc brakes are grooved and perforated all around. on AMG race cars, two-piece front brake discs on stainless-steel pins connected to hubs. This two-piece reduces weight and transfers of the intense braking heat would otherwise find its way to the bearings. Fixed brake (six-piston up front and four-piston at the grab the discs for a force of horsepower under full from 155 mph to zero.

An SLS AMG GT can be ordered optional ceramic disc which are identified by their calipers with AMG Carbon logos. Made of a carbon-fiber-reinforced material, the ceramic discs are harder than conventional This not only increases life, but also enhances under high heat and loads, for even shorter distances and higher fade under extreme conditions.

they utilize the same floating layout as the standard SLS AMG GT brakes, the ceramic discs are larger, and their total force is also higher. In the ceramic discs are 40 percent than conventional brakes, reducing unsprung weight and suspension and steering response.

Light-Alloy AMG Wheels

The alloy on the SLS AMG GT use an innovative flow-forming process compresses and strengthens the area the rim, allowing for thinner and reduced weight. As a result, SLS wheel is about 2.4 pounds than a conventional alloy further reducing unsprung and, in turn, enhancing and steering response.

In front, the SLS AMG GT are 9.5 inches wide, 19 inches in and are shod with 265 / 35 R 19 tires. The wheels measure 11.0 x 20 with 295 / 30 R 20 tires that are a foot wide. SLS AMG GT tires use an rubber compound with on dry surfaces that’s comparable to road racing tires, but their disadvantages in the wet and cold.
