RM1,999,999 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has launched their new supercar, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. For a staggering RM1,999,999 (OTR without insurance) price tag, you get Mercedes-Benz’s latest and most advanced supercar, one created as a tribute to the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing.
The signature gullwing doors are obviously the highlight, although Mercedes-Benz has done well to recreate the original car’s classic long bonnet, short rear proportion and muscular stance, while retaining the distinctive front grille with the large, imposing three-pointed star logo. Inspired by aviation engineering, the interior is a wonderful concoction of Nappa leather, carbon fibre and metal trim,all of the finest quality.
Thanks to a combination of low weight count and explosive power, the SLS AMG accelerates from 0-to-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of 317 km/h. The aluminium body shell and chassis ensure that the weight count is low at 1620 kg. Power comes from a 6.2-litre V8 AMG engine that produces 571 PS (563 bhp) at 6800 rpm and 650 Nm at 4750 rpm. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission transmits the generated power to the ground via the rear two wheels.
The SLS AMG will be paraded in Mercedes-Benz showrooms throughout Malaysia, allowing everyone a view of this state-of-the-art supercar.
