Spy Shots: Mercedes SLS AMG GT image

Even if the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT was introduced in late 2012, the German automaker is working to introduce a facelift model, most probably somewhere in 2015. However, as expected the facelifted SLS AMG GT will come with some minor updates – as you can see from these images.

Compared to the “normal” SLS, the GT model comes with 12 more horses (435 kW; 583 hp at @6800rpm), 3 additional AMG light-alloy wheels options, a re-tuned version of the AMG Adaptive Performance Suspension, red seat belts and a lot of AMG carbon-fibre exterior elements. In addition the Germans have re-tuned its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Torque remains at 479 lb-ft at 4750 rpm. Regarding its fuel consumption, EPA says that it is capable of returning 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway. But when you spend over $200,000 for a car fuel consumption is not important for you.

 

For the moment we don’t know if Mercedes plans a new engine, but the 583 hp 6.2-liter V12 engine that is on the actual model is capable to push the car to 100km/h in just 3.6 seconds.
