    SLS AMG MY12

    Some changes and new options for MY12 SLS AMG.

    Exterior color AMG Daytona Blue has been droped, replacement is AMG Sepang Brown.

    Interior-new colors are Espresso Brown and Espresso Brown/Black.

    Most interesting option is

    • AMG RIDE CONTROL Sportfahrwerk or adaptive sport suspension(basically you will get different programms-I will have more info in few days) order code is 479 and price is 2320,50€ in Germany with Mwst  

    It should offer excellent drivablility in normal city driving and the same performance as AMG Performance Fahrwerke(classic fixed sport suspension-also and option) on the track.

    MY12 SLS AMG German price list:

    Err, I think Kreso ordered AMG Imola Grey Metallic, he just informed us that Sepang brown is now available. Smiley

    Regarding AMG Sepang Brown Metallic-actually I think it is amazing color and SLS really looks good in it. My fav colors for SLS are AMG Imola Grey Metallic, AMG Sepang Brown Metallic and AMG Alubeam Silver(althoughthis color option is way too expensive).

    BTW, DCT software for M mode in SLS has been rewritten for MY12-expect much faster response.

    No, unfortunately I can't. Good thing is that R8 V10 will stay in extended family since my first cousin will take it.


    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    Just received latest digital brochure for SLS AMG.

    Option AMG Ride Control sportsuspension is explained in following german text:

    "

     

    Das SLS AMG Coupé ist serienmässig mit dem innovativen AMG Sportfahrwerk ausgestattet, dessen sportliche Abstimmung für ein Maximum an Fahrerlebnis sorgt. Wenn es einmal etwas komfortabler sein soll, ist auch das kein Problem. Mit dem optionalen AMG RIDE CONTROL Sportfahrwerk können während der Fahrt die Fahrmodi gewechselt werden: Sportlich straff oder angenehm komfortabel. Und das AMG Performance Fahrwerk unterstreicht auf Wunsch den Motorsportcharakter des SLS AMG.

     

     

    Das AMG RIDE CONTROL Sportfahrwerk unterstreicht den Motorsportcharakter des SLS AMG Coupés.
    Das ADS passt das Dämpfungsverhalten der Stossdämpfer in Abhängigkeit vom gewählten Dämpfungsmodus der Fahrweise und der Fahrbahnbeschaffenheit an.
    Durch Betätigen der Taste „Fahrwerk AMG“ kann zwischen drei Fahrwerksabstimmungen gewählt werden: Komfort „K“, Sport „S“ und Sport PLUS „S+“.
    Durch die straffere Abstimmung der Dämpfer in den Modi „S“ und „S+“ sorgt das AMG RIDE CONTROL Sportfahrwerk für hervorragende Querdynamik und somit für ein noch dynamischeres Fahrerlebnis.

    "


    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    It appears to be variable dampers. Something like PASM but with 3 modes.

    Do you know how the damping becomes variable? Hydraulic, magnetic like Audi or other?

    That is very important! Smiley

    IMO this was one of the major faults of the SLS.

    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    I liked the daytona blue very much but I guess it wasn't popular. The new brown looks very promising. For me, Black and grey are the best colors on the SLS.

    thx Kreso


    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    i guess the software update will be a service bulletin for all sls ? it should be.

    i went for standard suspension on my sls as it is not a track car.

    Regarding software I think it will be available as an update for all SLS.

    Suspenison? When you order your SLS new AMG Ride Control adaptive suspension was not available. You can be sorry that it is the case. According to my source at MB it is actually a must order option. Also optional AMG Performance suspension is for those costumers that plan to track their SLS regullary(in that case lightweight Bucket seats are also a must).


    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    Very incorrect on behalf of Mercedes to delay such a vital option (Ride Control) until a year after introduction of such a special model. It should have been available from day one.

    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    They are now offering a new Black Piano Lacquer trim. Can't find any pix but I'm sure it  looks nice.

    that's the way it is with technology.

    same as with pdk in the 911.

    Yes but this was just after a year. PDK was 5 years later.

    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    One of my neighbours has a pearl white SLS while another has a light silvery bronze one. They are both stunning! I wonder if I order a C63 coupe I could get those as options? Anyone know what those colours are called?

    Re: SLS AMG MY12

    the white is designo mystic white 2. thats actually the colour of my sls. i also ordered the c63 in the same colour.

    there is now also a new diamond bright white. that might be too flashy imo.
