The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was a luxury GT car built by the German automobile manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz from 2010 till 2014. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was built by Mercedes-Benz's in-house tuning company, Mercedes-AMG. The SLS AMG is a front-mid engine, rear-wheel drive grand tourer, and it's the first car designed entirely by Mercedes-AMG, and the last Mercedes-Benz car to use a naturally aspirated engine. The SLS AMG was replaced by the less expensive Mercedes-AMG GT.

This car is a successor, both to the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, since it has a similar layout to the SLR McLaren, and features gull-wing doors, like the 300SL. SLS stands for 'Sport Light Super'.

The SLS AMG features a 6.2 liter M159 DOHC V8, and and has-a 7 speed clutch-automatic transmission with a transaxle. The SLS develops 563 horsepower and 650 N·m of torque achieving 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and topping out at 200mph.
