AMGs Highlight the L.A. Auto Show

Giancarlo Perlas December 25, 2012

The gorgeous Torie Campbell is back with two spicy highlights from this year’s  Auto Show in Los Angeles. Among the featured cars there were the SLS AMG Black Series and the GL 63 AMG.

The design of the SLS AMG Black Series was inspired by the SLS AMG GT3 SLS Race Car. The power and the speed were also derived from the said model. From a complete halt, the car can accelerate up to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and reach up to a maximum speed of 196mph. The V8 engine of the car packs up to 622hp and 468lb-ft torque. It also features a seven-clutch transmission system.

The main factor that contributed to the boost in speed and power of the car is due to its weight reduction. According to Stephen Cannon, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA, the 150lb reduction is due to the use of carbon fibre.

On the other hand, the GL 63 AMG redefined the way that family cars should look both in the interior and exterior. This car is also equipped with a V8 5.5 litre biturbo engine and 557hp plus 760 maximum torque to provide every family a convenient and excellent experience while on the road.
