To many automobile enthusiasts, the 1955Mercedes-Benz 300SL was the pinnacle of sports car design. With its low-slung stance and distinctive gullwing doors, the 300SL was the first gasoline-powered car equipped with fuel injection directly into the combustion chamber, and it solidified the German carmaker’s reputation for crafting highly desirable, slick sports cars .
Now, more than 50 years later, Mercedes is revisiting the legendary Gullwing with the all-new 2011 SLS AMG. The first car developed from scratch by their in-house performance arm AMG, the new Gullwing is proof that Mercedes-Benz can still manufacture true high-end sports cars. This one is sure to become a classic.
The 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG is offered in one well-equipped model (and for more than $200K, it should be loaded). Standard features include designo leather upholstery, heated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless access and starting, AM/FM stereo with 6-disc DVD/CD changer, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, an HD radio, an iPod interface, a navigation system, bi-xenon headlights, Tele-Aid concierge service, a limited-slip differential, and P265/35R19 front and P295/30R20 rear tires on light alloy 5-spoke wheels.
