Mercedes SLS AMG

The Mercedes AMG SLS cost at least 177 310 euros. For this the kind buyer gets a super athlete with plenty of power - and with a very special eye-catcher: wing doors.

STUTTGART - In the spring of 2010 before rolling the new sports machine on the streets. With the two test options in the case of the SLS makes absolute sense. The potential of the eight-cylinder unit with dual-clutch gearbox and rear-wheel drive can be in the public transport travel than rudimentary. And even then you're constantly on the move on the edge of legality.

In figures: 6.3 liter V8 with lush provide 571 hp and only 1620 pounds live weight supersport performance figures: 3.8 seconds for the sprint 100s, less than twelve seconds to 200 km / h. And only in 317 cases is final. "Electronically limited", as AMG boss Volker Mornhinweg no notes proudly.

In real life, the force without end, and phenomenal spurts on the one means an absolutely civil behavior on the other side. Sure can engine change by pressing a button. And of course, the ESP can be varied depending on application and ability. If the challenging skid protection Variant ESP chosen sport, is really very fast, tight turns life into the aluminum space frame Body: The rear shall reduce a little shot of adrenalin into the blood stream. A real pleasure as that.

The wings are especially cool

Fuel needs of the SLS, the first fully developed by the Mercedes Power-owned model, of course. According to the EU's standards are 13.2 L per 100 km. Or 0.032 hp per liter, as the AMG boss says. Less, he says, needs no current super athlete. But of course, are in daily operation, rather dashing values around 20 liters of realistic

What people are interested in a parking lot at the roadside and, of course, most who are the legendary 300 SL Gullwing from the '50s modeled on doors. They're easy cool, even though they bring little in practical terms the advantages and some disadvantages. The embarkation and disembarkation, and the door-tightening around but requires a certain skill, especially short people have just as much problems as very large and stout. In the second group's to be a concern even in the very short cut inside. But we must also see the positive side: In addition to the impressive performance provide the wings - which, incidentally, in principle, the tailgate of the E-Class T-model match - the ability to get in very tight parking spaces. And with a maximum height of 1.45 meters, they also fit into any standard garage.
