2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

What We Like

Iconic gull-wing doors; inspiring sounds from naturally aspirated V8 engine; understated looks combined with extroverted performance.

What We Don't

Despite jaw-dropping doors, it isn't pretty from most angles; getting in and out is inherently awkward; limited storage space for long road trips.

Overview

What's New in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG?

The SLS gains the GT moniker for 2014 and features tweaks to suspension, transmission shifting and engine, offering a 20-horsepower gain and a more committed, stiffer ride quality. 

Which SLS AMG is the Best?

If you're looking to get in on the legend of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, you'd better act fast: The Final Edition of this already limited-production vehicle was recently announced, signaling the end of the line for the modern Gullwing we've come to know and love. While the standard SLS already feels special, the $275,000 Black Series is rare and exceptional enough to be one of those cars that will someday merit a spot in the world's great classic-car shows, such as Villa d'Este and the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It may be out of reach for most, but the SLS inspires enthusiasts everywhere with its forward-thinking engineering and outrageous performance, making it hard for well-heeled buyers to ignore -- especially just before it heads off into the supercar sunset.

How Much Does a 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Cost?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS-Class comes in GT Coupe, GT Roadster and Black Series coupe variants.

The SLS GT ($201,500) is well equipped with the standard slew of luxury items -- as well it should be, given its 6-figure starting price and with exterior cosmetic options ranging from a variety of wheels to carbon-fiber side mirror caps ($1,900). Aluminum trim is standard inside, while carbon fiber can be added for $2,750. If you don't mind extensive use of the stiff, lightweight stuff, the Extended Interior Carbon Fiber Package ($7,250) should suffice. A 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system adds $6,400 to the price, while an AMG Performance Media package ($2,500) delivers performance-based instrumentation and data logging for lap info. A carbon-fiber engine compartment cover runs $5,400, while virtually fade-free brakes can be had for $12,500.

Essentially the same options can be applied to the SLS GT Roadster ($208,000), except for the carbon side mirrors.

The SLS Black Series ($275,000) squeezes 622 hp and 468 lb-ft of torque out of the V8 and adds a more aggressive shift pattern with the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Also included is an electronic rear differential and higher-performance brakes and suspension, not to mention several rather racy body mods including a large rear spoiler. Though Mercedes doesn't publish the cost of options on the limited-production Black Series, those items include a Bang & Olufsen sound system, an extended carbon-fiber interior, additional bodywork and the ability to delete the COMAND nav system for greater weight savings.

Competition

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG vs the competition

Aston Martin Vanquish -- This $278,295 British super coupe tops the Aston Martin lineup, and feels quite special thanks to its beautifully bespoke details and elegant design. Undeniably quirkier than the SLS, it appeals to a different crowd that's equally interested in performance and style.

Lamborghini Gallardo -- The $191,900 Gallardo is the flashier alternative to the SLS. And like the Benz, this V10-powered Bull is enjoying its last moments in the sun before it's replaced with an all-new model. Strong, secure types may prefer the SLS's Teutonic solidity, but wild-child showoffs will be drawn to the Gallardo.

McLaren 12C -- It's hard to argue with McLaren's technological tour de force, which boasts dihedral doors that offer a strong counterpoint to the SLS model's famous gull-wing arrangement. The 12C makes a strong case for itself compared to the SLS, but you'll pay a steep premium starting at $239,400 for 12C.
