Mercedes has unveiled a revised version of the SLS AMG supercar and the updates are so widespread that Mercedes has seen fit to give it a new name, so from November it will be known as the SLS AMG GT. The range-topping model still comes with the same 6.3-litre V8 from the SLS but power is now up to 575bhp – that’s compared to 555bhp in the older car. Combine that extra power with a recalibrated seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and Mercedes predicts the 0-62mph time will fall by a tenth of a second to 3.7 seconds. The GT also gets a retuned adaptive suspension system, which Mercedes claims now features ‘stiffer and more aggressive spring and damper tuning for a more dynamic feel’.
Drivers can switch between ‘Sport’ and the more aggressive ‘Sport plus’ modes. A few visual cues mark out the newcomer too, including a GT badge on the boot, red brake calipers and darker headlight lenses. Both coupe and roadster versions of the SLS AMG GT will be available in November but Mercedes hasn’t confirmed if the newcomer will wear the same £168,425 starting price-tag as the current car.
