We are not reporting very often about cars here and usually stick to the more impressive sportscars out there when we touch the subject. Therefore we could of course not let the opportunity pass when Mercedes asked if we wanted to be the only ones to be let in first into their IAA booth tonight to check out live their new SLS AMG.
The car comes with 571 HP from a 6.3 liter engine and is built entirely from aluminum. The impressive wing doors return from the 300 SL to the SLS AMG. All the specs are of course very impressive. The interior is also beautiful, we especially liked the overall subtle and clean look of all the electronics. One did not feel overloaded with buttons. The car will be officially released in Spring 2010. The car shows its roots from the past, but has for sure been well transformed into a modern car. We already heard rumors that the SLS AMG will actually be coming with an electric engine in 2013, which is something the engineers at Mercedes already took into consideration from the very start. We cannot wait.
For now, look at the new super sportscar from Mercedes, the SLS AMG, in detail after the jump.
