Whenever a significant new model is scheduled to debut at an upcoming major auto show – you can be more than sure that images of the vehicle will start to surface a few days prior to the actual debut. Well, today Mercedes-Benz’s new SLS AMG has fallen victim to embargo breaking with some images popping up on an Australian site called CarPoint.
We already know a lot about the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and have already seen the whole interior of the car. We’ve even seen the full ordering guide when it leaked online about 2 months ago – so it’s probably safe to say that Mercedes-Benz is probably not losing sleep over the leakage.
As for those of you who need a little reminder…
Refresher: Power comes from a 6.2L V8 making 563-hp with a maximum torque of 479 lb-ft. Mated to an E-SELECT system that controls the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, the SLS AMG can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.8 seconds (with the Race Start launch control system) with a top speed of 196 mph.
Stay tuned for more details.
