Report: Baby Mercedes-Benz SLS is supposedly on the way, might be called SLV

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Mercedes-Benz may be releasing its anticipated ‘baby SLS AMG’ sometime late this year, bearing only an AMG badge.

With only two doors and two seats, the sports car may be competition for the Porsche Cayman and Boxter models. Improvements that come with the new model’s smaller size over the SLS include better gas mileage and better handling.

The release of the new model opens up doors for plenty of other AMG-branded opportunities, although there is no word from Mercedes on this at this time. Pricing has yet to be released, but once the automaker releases where the AMG will be making its debut, all of the details are sure to follow right behind.
