Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster 2012


AMG are expected to debut the new 2012 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster at September’s 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. This super sports car is a perfect combination of open-top driving pleasure, outstanding driving dynamics and sophisticated lightweight construction. Although weighing in at 3800lbs, nearly 300lbs more than the hard top version, buyers opting for the Roadster variant don’t necessarily put this at the top of their list of priorities. The 2012 SLS AMG Roadster will make its U.S. debut in Fall 2011.

The technological highlights of the 2012 SLS AMG Roadster include an aluminum space frame body, an AMG 6.3-litre V8 front-mid engine with dry sump lubrication developing a peak output of 563 bhp and 479 pound-feet of torque, a seven-speed dual clutch transaxle transmission and a sports suspension with aluminum double wishbones – all of which will raise the pulse of sports car enthusiasts while providing outstanding driving dynamics and driving pleasure.
