2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster also in the works

Mercedes-Benz has yet to officially unveil the new 2011 SLS AMG and already we’re hearing reports that a convertible, or roadster, version is in the works for 2011.

The SLS AMG Roadster is expected to debut exactly a year after the regular SLS AMG which is scheduled to make its official debut in spring 2010. The successor to the 300 SL Roadster will obviously drop its gullwing doors and will feature a soft-top canvas.

Power is expected to come from the same 571-hp 6.3L V8 AMG engine found in its coupe sibling. We’re guessing there will be slight drop in the 0 to 62 mph run as well as the top speed which comes in at 196 mph for the coupe.
