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.

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.
