Paris Motor Show LIVE: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT image

Mercedes-Benz has officially pulled the wraps off the SLS AMG GT during the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

After it was announced just a few months ago and then revealing a Formula 1 safety car based on it at the Singapore Grand Prix, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the German based automaker bringing it to the 2012 edition of the Paris Motor Show. Mercedes-Benz says that the SLS AMG GT is coming with some exterior modifications like the darkened taillights and headlamps, the painted brake calipers, the gloss finish for the mirrors, hood, fenders and grille and the GT logo added to the luggage lid.

The regular version of the updated Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the GT, is getting some minor tweaks to the engine, like the modified ECU, which allows the 6.3-liter V8 engine to develop a total output of 591 horsepower, 20 horsepower more than the standard version. Thanks to this, the German supercar can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. Mercedes-Benz says that the SLS AMG GT will be launched in Germany this year where the supercar will be priced at 204,680 euros for the Coupe and at 213,010 euros for the Roadster. More details on it will be announced close to its launch.
