Mercedes-Benz unveiled the SLS AMG GT, an updated version of its well-known supercar, which comes with more power, optimized AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission and a redeveloped AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension. For those who don’t know, the standard version of the SLS AMG is powered by the same AMG 6.3-litre V8 front mid-engine delivering “only” 591 hp, which means that the SLS AMG GT gets an extra 20 hp while the maximum torque is 650 Nm at 4750 rpm.
As a result, the SLS AMG GT is with 0.1 quicker than the standard version as the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in 3.7 seconds. The SLS AMG GT achieves 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.2 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 320 km/h or 200 mph (standard version has a top speed of 317 km/h or 197 mph).
Moreover, the SLS AMG GT’s AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7 speed sports transmission offers newly developed gear change functions and optimised transmission control. The automatic double-declutching function when shifting down is also more pronounced in the SLS AMG GT.
The newly developed AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension also enhances the vehicle's sportiness. Now, Mercedes-Benz also offers highly exclusive optional extra in the form of AMG designo Exclusive STYLE leather.This high-quality extra is available in single or two-tone finishes and comprises distinctive upholstery with a diamond design with contrasting stitching.
