2013 mercedes benz SLS AMG GT

2013 mercedes-benz SLS AMG GT

the 2013 mercedes-benz SLS AMG GT features heightened dynamics by offering an enhanced maximum output of its 6.3-liter V8 front mid-engine which has been increased to 583 hp (435 kW) at 6800 rpm, while maximum torque is maintained at 479 lb / ft at 4750 rpm; a re-calibrated AMG speedshift DCT 7-speed sports transmission; and a redeveloped AMG adaptive suspension that elevates the vehicle’s profile even further. these technical changes yield a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.6 seconds with a maximum speed of 197 mph thanks to a newly developed gear change logic and optimized transmission control which shortens this reaction time during shifts. when doing so manually via alloy shift paddles, the transitions are remarkably a lot cleaner and quicker than before. this is a result of a modified engine mapping profile which changes engine torque delivered in manual mode, making the switch even quicker than previously.

dashboard

the new AMG adaptive performance suspension enhances the vehicles ‘sportiness’ combining a suspension layout of twin aluminium wishbones featuring a stiffer and more aggressive spring and damper tuning for a more dynamic feel. its control algorithm reacts best to fluctuations in the road surface with a tendency towards lower / softer damp force levels.

available both as a coupe or roadster, the sportcar’s masculine aesthetic is distingued by darkened leadlamp and tail light lenses, a unique wheel color and red-painted brake calipers. the wing-shaped cross fins and star recess in the radiator grille are given a new high-gloss black finish as well as the exterior mirrors and fins located on the hood and front fenders.

  • Gullwing was always my favorite car but i dont think this remake does the original justice. I dont feel anything when i look at this. Comparing the two id rather have the original.

  • I love the C-Class steering wheel in this super super premium vehicle 🙂

  • I’ll have two 🙂

    Much prefer it in the gun metal grey and you can’t beat wing doors to show off.

    Not sure I could get out in a parking space when I pop to Waitrose for lunch!
