Mercedes-Benz Outs New SLS AMG GT, Touts Improved Driving Dynamics

Ryan Joseph Ramos June 6, 2012

If the driving dynamics on the SLS AMG wasn’t dynamic enough for you, then you’ll love the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT. Those two letters tacked on at the end of the name aren’t just for show—the aforementioned improved driving dynamics and enhanced performance on the track should justify those.

The SLS AMG GT churns out a maximum of 591 horsepower at 6,800 rpm, with max torque pegged at 650 Nm (around 480 lb.-ft.), all thanks to the 6.3-liter V8 AMG engine. The car has a 0-62 mph time of 3.7 seconds, and it takes a mere 11.2 seconds for the car to go from 0 to 125 mph. Its top speed is 197 mph.

The car, which can be purchased as a soft-top roadster or a gullwing-equipped coupe, also comes with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed optimized sports transmission. Driving dynamics is also bolstered by a refreshed AMG RIDE CONTROL Performance suspension.

“The new SLS AMG GT demonstrates the sort of potential which lies in AMG’s super sports cars,” said Mercedes-AMG board member and Head of Overall Vehicle Development Tobias Moers. “With its even higher levels of performance, the SLS AMG GT excites out on the race track in particular by providing an emotionally enjoyable and passionate driving experience.”

    According to the article on top:
    11.2 to top speed of 197mph? That is impossible! Must be error.

    This article:
    then here says 11.2 to top speed of 200kph? 200kph is not fast at all… unless you mean 11.2 to 200kph not top speed of 200kph… errors in this article.

    Just thought you guys would like to know
