Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG makes Canadian debut and stuns the fans in attendance at the 2010 Montreal International Auto Show event.
This is the newest automobile to join the German engineered product line and it has won over thousands of fans before it has even been made available to consumers. Enthusiasts were awed by the “Gullwing” design as the Mercedes-Benz SLS made its 1st official appearance in Montreal. Fans that were on hand to witness the official unveiling of this sporty 2 passenger coupe could not help but be impressed.
Although high end luxury and cutting edge technology are expected in any Mercedes product, the SLS AMG deserves to be placed in a category all by itself.
The car immediately captures your attention because of those high tech gullwing styled doors but other features are just as innovative and impressive.
The 563hp, V8 motor coupled with a unique 7 speed, dual clutch designed transmission gives the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG the power to reach a speed of 317 km per hour and it only takes the vehicle 3.8 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/hr.
Many will see the resemblance to the earlier 300 SL model especially toward the front of the car where the wide radiator grille and Mercedes-Benz logo are prominent design features. Spring sales are expected to be brisk when this $198K car finally goes on sale to the public.
