The SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION brings an impressive era to an end. The FINAL EDITION model, built in a limited run of just 350 units, represents the last opportunity for customers to drive a SLS AMG.
The Mercedes SLS AMG GT Final Edition has been unveiled at the LA and Tokyo motor shows two years ago. As the name suggests, this marks the beginning of the end for SLS production. The model has been on sale less than four years, but makes way in 2014 for a new, smaller sports car called AMG GT.
The Final Editon is a bold looking thing, with a fixed carbonfibre rear wing inspired by the SLS Black Series and a carbon bonnet, Mercedes claiming that the latter increases downforce over the front axle and improves the car’s drag coefficient rating.
New 19in forged alloy wheels come with two variations of matt black colour scheme and the option of bespoke AMG Dunlop Sport Maxx Race Cup tyres, ideal for ‘use by aspiring racing drivers on private or closed-off circuits’, we’re told. More superficial tweaks inside include a ‘1 of 350’ interior plaque and an Alcantara ‘3D seam’.
Beneath that exceedingly long carbon bonnet is the same 591bhp/479lb ft 6.2-litre V8 engine that powers the regular SLS AMG GT, yielding a 3.7sec 0-60 time and an electronically limited 198mph top speed. It drives the rear wheels via a seven-speed twin-clutch paddleshift gearbox. AMG Ride Control electronically adjustable dampers are fitted.
Thanks to the wide variety of models – from a gullwing model to the roadster, GT, the Black Series, an electric drive and its success in motorsport as the GT3 variant – the SLS AMG has become ever more attractive and is now one of the legendary dream cars from the brand with the star.
