Mercedes-Benz Bringing SLS AMG GT Final Editon To Los Angeles Auto Show

News I By Bradley Iger I November 15, 2013
It’s with a heavy heart that we report that SLS AMG‘s days are numbered, despite having only been on sale here in the US since 2010. However, Mercedes-Benz plans to give the coupe a proper swansong in the form of the limited-run SLS AMG GT Final Edition, which is set to debut next week at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
 
Expect some tweaks to the SLS AMG’s legendary 6.2 liter V8, which churns out 583 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque in the standard SLS. If the above photo is any indication, more aggressive bodywork and perhaps a carbon fiber hood appear to be in the cards, and we wouldn’t be surprised to find a few interior enhancements as well.
 
If you’re looking to get into an SLS, Mercedes is quick to remind buyers that time is not on their side:
 
"The SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION brings an impressive era to an end. The FINAL EDITION model, built in a limited run of just 350 units, represents the last opportunity for customers to order a SLS AMG – while at the same time reflecting the unrivalled success story and unique scope offered by the first vehicle to be completely built by Mercedes-AMG."
 
We’ll find out more when the car hits the stage next week.
 
 
Saving the best for last: SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION

 
The SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION brings an impressive era to an end. The FINAL EDITION model, built in a limited run of just 350 units, represents the last opportunity for customers to order a SLS AMG – while at the same time reflecting the unrivalled success story and unique scope offered by the first vehicle to be completely built by Mercedes-AMG. The super sports car, with its 435 kW (591 hp) AMG 6.3-litre V8 front-mid engine, offers an exciting combination of truly exceptional design and equipment features. Ever since it was presented in 2009 the SLS AMG has been an icon of the Mercedes-Benz brand and is highly sought-after around the world. Thanks to the wide variety of models – from a gullwing model to the roadster, GT, the Black Series, an electric drive and its success in motorsport as the GT3 variant – the SLS AMG has become ever more attractive and is now one of the legendary dream cars from the brand with the star.
