Just two years after the SLS AMG ‘Gullwing’ coupe went on sale and less than a year since the introduction of the Roadster model, Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a mildly update version of its halo supercar, which from now on, will be known as the SLS AMG GT in both body styles. The update mostly focuses on improving the SLS AMG GT’s performance and handling with the 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine gaining an extra 20hp over the outgoing model at 583hp (591PS) at 6,800rpm, while maximum torque remains the same at 650Nm (479 lb-ft) at 4,750rpm. Along with a faster AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed double-clutch transmission featuring newly developed gear change functions and optimized transmission control, the V8 propels the SLS AMG GT from zero to 100 km/h 0.1 seconds faster than the current model at 3.7 seconds, and can reach 200 km/h (124mph) in 11.2 seconds [0-60mph:3.6s].
Top speed is electronically limited at 317km/h (197mph). The 2013 model is also enhanced with the newly developed AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension that features stiffer spring/damper tuning and dispenses in “Comfort” mode.
