Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

It isn't done yet, but wow, I am curious as to how much this thing is going to cost....it looks to be quite a performer and maybe a looker too.

AMG's has globs of torque, I mean their torque curves are vicious

yeah looks pretty good, even with the "camo". Can't wait to see how it performs (well read about it, of course!):(

The similarities to the Viper are because . . . it has Viper body panels. Remember Daimler-Chrysler-Mercedes-Benz . . .

OMFG!!! That's the funniest thing I've read in a while!!! OMFG!!!

What I was goint to add, before being distracted, was I think MB/AMG are the European musclecar equivalents to the Big Three from some time ago. All those cars are just b@lls-to-the-wall.

Leaked Info

Whenever a significant new model is scheduled to debut at an upcoming major auto show – you can be more than sure that images of the vehicle will start to surface a few days prior to the actual debut. Well, today Mercedes-Benz’s new SLS AMG has fallen victim to embargo breaking with some images popping up on an Australian site called CarPoint.

We already know a lot about the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and have already seen the whole interior of the car. We’ve even seen the full ordering guide when it leaked online about 2 months ago - so it’s probably safe to say that Mercedes-Benz is probably not losing sleep over the leakage.

Power comes from a 6.2L V8 making 563-hp with a maximum torque of 479 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an E-SELECT system that controls the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, the SLS AMG can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.8 seconds (with the Race Start launch control system) with a top speed of 196 mph.
