Benefits of Driving a 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe

Designed and built by AMG--Mercedes-Benz' performance division, the SLS AMG was inspired by the iconic 300SL Gullwing of the 1950s and built with both performance and usability in mind. In a supercar market full of occasional-use vehicles that see duty only occasionally, like the Lamborghini Gallardo or Ferrari 458, the SLS stands out as a practical performer that'll keep pace, has a great look, and still can be driven regularly. Starting at under $200k, it's a relative bargain among its peers.

What's new for 2012?

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was introduced as a new model for 2011. The only change seen for 2012 is the addition of a convertible version.

Model Strengths

  • Iconic styling with vintage 300SL looks
  • gull-wing doors, supercar status from performance-designed chassis
  • powerful V8 engine
  • roadster bodystyle available for 2012.

Model Review

Designed as a replacement for the aging McLaren SLR and as a new range-topper for Mercedes-Benz, the SLS AMG is a completely new platform designed and honed by the high-performance gurus at AMG. Using the 300SL Gullwing as inspiration gave the car its characteristic shape, and perhaps its most unique and iconic feature--gull-wing doors. It features a long hood and short rear deck, much like the 300SL. Performance has been ramped up considerably, both in terms of raw power and chassis design.
