Despite the Frankfurt Motor Show only being just six days away, pictures of Mercedes latest vehicle, the SLS have been leaked on to the Internet. Below of the first official shots of the SLS, which has taken its inspiration from the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, an iconic fifties car. This car performance wise has been designed to fill the void between the McLaren SLR and the SLS AMG, costing considerably less than the SLR, but more than the SLS AMG.
From a design perspective, it features Gullwing style doors which are hinged at the roof, a low roof and a huge front, it actually looks similar to a Dodge Viper! Under the bonnet, you’ll find a Mercedes AMG 6.3 litre monster v8 engine, which produces 555 BHP and can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and features a top speed of just under 200 MPH, luckily carbon ceramic brakes will be an optional extra, but in all honesty I think they should be fitted as standard.
Price wise, the SLS will start from around £130,000. And will be available next summer from various Mercedes dealerships.
