The brand-new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION
November 20, 2013 – Affalterbach
The splendid finale: the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION brings an excellent age to an end in exclusive style. The FINAL EDITION version, which will be a limited production run of a miniscule 350 systems around the world, represents the last opportunity for clients to buy a SLS AMG GT– while at the exact same time reflecting the unrivaled success story and bespoke scope provided by the first automobile to be entirely built by Mercedes-AMG. The incredible sports car, with its 583 hp AMG 6.3 -litre V8 front -mid engine, provides a remarkable combination of genuinely extraordinary design and equipment capabilities while exclusively created optional Cup tires boost its powerful performance.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION is celebrating its twin opening night at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the Tokyo Motor Show (both: November 20 to December 1, 2013). The marketplace launch will start in March 2014 and the extremely rare cars will be available as either a Coupe or a Roadster. When 350 autos have been constructed, production of the SLS AMG design series will come to an end.
Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “As the first automobile to be completely produced by AMG, the SLS AMG marked the start of a new age for our firm. And now, through the SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION, we are providing our customers one extremely eye-catching and last variation of our supercars. With its numerous carbon fiber-look physical body components, an additional optimized wind resistant equilibrium and optional Cup tires, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION has the downright possibility to fascinate.”
Exterior with specially constructed carbon fiber hood and rear diffuser.
The unique layout of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION guarantees that it sticks out in aesthetic terms: the carbon fiber hood with central air conditioning, the carbon fiber front splitter on the front apron, the carbon fiber rear diffuser that is similar to the SLS AMG Coupe Black Series and the unique AMG built light-alloy wheels make it an actual head-turner. Along with the graphite matte paintwork that has been borrowed from the SLS AMG GT3 “45th ANNIVERSARY” collector’s model race auto, the carbon fiber elements, the bespoke layout AMG forged tires have a clearly vigorous flair. To contribute to the aesthetic impression when seen from behind, the struts of the back apron are finished in high-gloss black.
The brand-new aerodynamic parts, which are comprised of an exposed carbon fiber hood, a carbon fiber back diffuser and a carbon fiber front splitter all enhance downforce on both the front and the back axles. As on the SLS AMG Coupe Black Series and the SLS AMG GT3, the carbon fiber hood of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION includes a practical main air electrical outlet. Apart from efficiently dissipating engine warmth, this opening also boosts downforce at the front axle and enhances the low coefficient of drag for the supercar. The designers at AMG have used the vacuum impact to provide the dual advantage of dissipating the hot air from the engine area at the exact same time as sucking up the amazing air flow from the car’s underbody. The optimized aerodynamic capabilities of this sport car not only enhances the car’s potential on the auto racing circuit, but also increases driver safety on the highways and byways of the world, including the German Autobahn.
AMG created tires and newly put together Cup tires.
The exclusive style of the AMG built tires on the Final Edition are available in two shade variations: inlayed in matte black with the spokes and rim flange in a high-sheen finish or totally repainted matte black highlighted by a pencil slim high-sheen rim flange. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION further lends itself for high-performance steering on private or closed-off circuits.
The AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine generates 583 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.
Opening the carbon-fiber hood reveals the front mid-mounted AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine, which sits low down in the chassis and well to the back. With a result of 583 hp at 6800 revolutions per minute and optimum torque of 479 lb-ft of torque at 4750 rpm, the high-revving eight-cylinder engine assures dynamic driving at its finest.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION speeds up from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 secs, and can reach 124 mph in 11.2 secs. The car’s top speed is 197 mph (digitally limited).
Fast-reacting, changeable and mentally exciting– the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission shows to be the excellent match for the V8 normally aspirated engine. The AMG Adaptive Performance Suspension with variable, electronically managed damping, consists of the “Sport” and “Sport plus” settings.
