Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG to be replaced by SLS AMG GT – official image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has recently announced that the SLS AMG supercar will be replaced by an improved version, which will be named the SLS AMG GT.

According to the car manufacturer, most changes on the current Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will be focused on performance so exterior modifications will be minimal and they will include the darkened taillights, darkened headlamps, red-painted brake calipers, a high gloss finish for the hood, fendr, exterior mirrors and grille frame and the “GT” added to the AMG logo on the luggage lid.

Technical improvements go up to the electronically controlled AMG Ride Control Performance Suspension, which include doubly aluminum control arms in four corners, along with stiffer dampers and springs. AMG has deleted the “Comfort” mode and the “Sport” mode is now recommended for everyday driving, while the “Sport Plus” will have the job of keeping your adrenaline at a high level.

Thanks to a reprogrammed ECU, the total output of the 6.3 liter AMG V8 engine has increased by 20 HP to 591 HP and this allows the German supercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT will hit the local market in October this year and the model will be priced at 204,680 euros for the Coupe and 213,010 euros for the Roadster.
