What you’re looking at could be the first official photo of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing. Courtesy of German magazine AutoBild, this image is being touted as our first official look at the most extreme Benz ever built.
Even if this photo is a computer rendering, we’re guessing that the final version shouldn’t be too far off from what we’re seeing here.
So far, Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will be powered by a 6.2L V8 making 563-hp with a peak torque of 479 lb-ft. The engine is mated to an E-SELECT system that controls the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission. With the help of a new “Race Start” launch control system, the SLS AMG can go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 196 mph.
