Pictures always seem to find their way to the internet whenever a big unveiling is expected, and it's no different with Mercedes Benz's latest supercar creation, the SLS AMG. The Mercedes Benz SLS AMG's design is based heavily on the SL Gullwing from the 1950's, but although it looks retro, what's to be found underneath that old-school design is all modern.
For starters, the engine is a dry-sumped 6.2l V8 from AMG, but in its most powerful form yet. It produces 571hp and 650nm of torque, with a seven speed double clutch transmission doing the job of getting all that power to the rear wheels. A 3.7 sec dash from 0-100 km/h can also be expected, with a top speed of 317 km/h following if you keep the throttle pedal pinned to the floor.
Combine the above mentioned with a weight distribution of 47/53 front to rear, and an aluminium spaceframe bodyshell, the SLS promises to be a great drive. All we can do is wait for a test drive to see if it's a promise kept, and hope that Mercedes wont still be mad at us for publishing photos ahead of their unveiling.
