Today’s Autotrader Find is a special example of a special variant of a special car. It’s a 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Coupe with only 94 miles on the clock. Any SLS AMG is a pretty unique supercar, but the Final Edition is quite rare and we’ve found one that hasn’t even been driven 100 miles.
What is the SLS AMG?
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is the spiritual successor to the original W198 300SL. It borrows and modernizes the overall shape and many design cues of the classic Benz and, most notably, has similar gullwing doors on the coupe version. This was the first car that was designed and built from scratch by AMG. Power comes from the M159 engine, which is a 6.2-liter V8 producing 583 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. It’s worth noting that the Black Series version of this engine was rated at 622 horsepower and still holds the record for the most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever put in a production car.
What is the Final Edition?
As its name suggests, the Final Edition was the swan song for the SLS AMG. 2015 was the final model year for the car before being replaced by the Mercedes-AMG GT. Performance specs were identical to the regular SLS AMG GT, but there’s a lot that was special about the Final Edition. For starters, only 350 of them were built. They had an exposed carbon fiber hood, a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear spoiler borrowed from the SLS AMG Black Series, a graphite matte body color, and special wheels.
The interior is also distinct to the Final Edition. It has Designo leather upholstery with a diamond stitch batter and the whole interior has a black/silver motif similar to the exterior. This is found in the silver contrast stitching, a strip of silver at the top of the steering wheel, silver piping around the floor mats, and my personal favorite touch; silver seat belts.
Such an exclusive car with such low mileage isn’t cheap. This SLS AMG GT Final Edition is offered for sale in Neptune Beach, Florida with an asking price of $427,500. There are so few of these in the world that it’s hard to determine whether that’s a fair price. It looks like the original MSRP of this car would’ve been around the $225k mark, so it’s appreciated in value a bit if that valuation is accurate. Find a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG for sale
