Product Overview

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG C197 is a mid-size supercar in production from 2010 to 2014. It was powered by several tunes of the M159 naturally-aspirated V8 engine that displaced 6.2 liters paired to a 7-speed DCT.
The spiritual successor to the SLR McLaren, the SLS AMG is the first vehicle designed and built entirely by AMG. It is much more affordable than the SLR but is arguably more beautiful. Its gullwing doors are exceptionally unforgettable.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners. This provides the good cornering performance and durability.
