    SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

    Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

     

    During the official launch of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing in the United States, AMG chief, Mr. Volker Mornhinweg announced the electric version of the new supercar for late 2012 or early 2013. The new electric car, dubbed SLS eDrive, will carry four electric motors capable to deliver an impressive 533 hp and 880 Nm of torque. With these numbers, the vehicle will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds while the top speed will be 200+ km/h. The range will be between 150 or 180 km. The new SLS AMG eDrive will be the direct rival of the new Audi e-Tron which will also hit the market in the same period. For those who don’t know, the e-Tron will carry four electric motors which will deliver 313 hp and an impressive 4,500 Nm of torque. The Audi will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, and from 60 to 120 km/h in 4.1 seconds while the range will be arround 250 km.

    and we are convinced that the SLS AMG will captivate our customers,” said Volker Mornhinweg, Chairman of the Management Board at Mercedes-AMG GmbH. The car can also be configured online at www.mercedes-amg.com and www.mercedes-benz.com

    The new SLS AMG takes the Mercedes-Benz cars into a new era and demonstrates development expertise of the very highest order. Everything found beneath the stylish design is impressive: AMG 6.3-litre V8 front-mid-engine developing 420 kW/571 hp peak output, 650 Nm of torque and dry sump lubrication, seven-speed double-declutch transmission in a transaxle configuration, sports suspension with aluminium double wishbones and a kerb weight of 1620 kilograms based on the DIN standard – this superlative combination guarantees driving dynamics of the highest order. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is made in just 3.8 seconds while the top speed is electronically limited to 317 km/h. Fuel consumption of 13.2 litres per 100 kilometres (combined) makes it one of the best among its competitors.

    I love how every the B&O soundsystem is AMG lol!!

    But with those prices, this will add up quickly. 4000 euros for the carbon fiber engine cover...

    looooool, true!!


    Re: SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

    SLS will be as expensive as 458 Italia when specced properly.

    Re: SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

    What I really don't get is the 317 km/h limiter... why not 315 or 320? Two nice round numbers...

    Does some competitor reach 316 kph? Smiley

    That would explain the additional 1 kph. As in case of the power output of 571 hp in comparison to the 570 hp of the 458 Italia. Smiley

    Italia is actually more powerful. Italia has 425kW and SLS 420kW. Which is 578PS and 571PS or 570BHP and 563BHP. Ferrari is using BHP for horsepower and AMG is using PS. Smiley

     


    Re: SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

    Not to mention that the 458 has a 2.4 kg/hp ratio and 330 km/h top speed compared to 2.8 and 317 for the SLS. The Ferrari is out of reach for just about any competitor.

    317 compare favourably with the 997.2 TT though and its 312 km/h top speed. Rossi might be right then.

    458 Italia top speed is 325km/h according to nice hard cover brochure that I have.


    Re: SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

    Who would buy an 6CD - Changer? I mean are we living in 1982? ts ts ts

    And - the carbon fiber interior package should be included in such a car. As nowadays, the production process is well understood and not that complicated anymore as years before. The fire itself is cheap (I frequently buy the fiber and a square meter is around 20 €).

     


    Re: SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

    Yes, but that's the price for carbon fiber WITH a Mercedes logo on it! (4.000euros) Smiley

    That is "well over 325" according to Ferrari. (Which reminds me the Enzo that was quoted as "well over 350" and was clocked at 370 in various events... Smiley).

    I found out by now. Audir R8 V10, which is seen by Mercedes as a major competitor to their SLS, has a top speed of 316 kph.

    So they decided to give the SLS a top speed of 317 kph. Smiley

    Re: SLS AMG available to order starting November 16

     Brilliant find Rossi! I 'd take the R8 V10 over the SLS any day though.
