Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG to make its U.S. debut at the LA Auto Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2009

At the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz will be debuting the 563-horsepower Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar, the fuel-sipping E350 BlueTEC and the fuel-cell-powered B-Class F-Cell in North American soil.

The displays will be open to the public from December 4 to 13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. In addition, Mercedes-Benz will launch its first hybrid SUV, the ML450 HYBRID, as well as the SPLITVIEW dual-content viewing technology.

The new SLS AMG supercar is actually the first-ever car designed and developed from the ground up by Mercedes-AMG. It features a lightweight aluminum space-frame body with gullwing doors and a 563-horsepower dry-sump V8 engine.

The SLS AMG has a front-mid engine and dual-clutch seven-speed, resulting to ideal weight distribution and race-car-like handling.

Meanwhile, the E350 BlueTEC is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 diesel with 210 horsepower and has 400 lb.-ft. of torque. It is capable of 30% better fuel economy than a comparable gasoline engine.

The E350 BlueTEC is now equipped with the innovative AdBlue injection that makes diesel exhaust super-clean. 

Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC will be available in all 50 states in Spring 2010. Also showcased at the L.A. Auto Show is an S-Class equipped with SPLITVIEW, a single display screen that allows the driver and front passenger to view two different programs at the same time.
