The AMG CEO Ola Kallenius has recently dismissed the rumor which saying that a four-door version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will hit the market.
After some rumors appeared not too long ago, which were saying that a four-door version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will hit the market in the nearby future, the company’s CEO, Ola Kallenius, has told the guys at telegraaf.nl that the larger version of the German sports car isn’t for real. According to our source, the four-door SLS AMG was only a conceptual idea which was mentioned while the vehicle was initially under development, and there will not be a production version of the model.
As a quick reminder, the SLS AMG has been in production since 2010 and the German supercar will soon be replaced by a more powerful version, which will be named the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT. According to the car manufacturer, the improved version of the SLS AMG, the GT, will still get the same 6.3 liter AMG V8 engine, but thanks to a reprogrammed ECU, the model will develop 20 HP more, to a total of 591 HP, which will allow the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in just 11.2 seconds. The SLS AMG GT will be launched in Germany this October and the Coupe will cost 204,680 euros, while the Roadster will go on sale from 213,010 euros.
