This Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is no longer available. Please contact us for any further information you may require.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Heavily influenced by the 300 SL Gullwing, the SLS’s styling captured the long stretching bonnet and rear-set cabin to create a similar but adapted shape for the company’s 21st century supercar.
Developed entirely in house, this was the first time AMG had been given a clean sheet to build a road car from the ground up, and one with the billing that would make it something altogether more serious than a comfortable Mercedes-Benz.
The 6.2-litre V8 engine, which was designed specifically for AMG models, produces a staggering 563 bhp at 6,800 rpm, with 650 Nm of torque at 4,750 rpm. The SLS can accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds and can reach with ease a top speed of 197 mph.
Similar to its predecessor, the SLS’s body was constructed of lightweight aluminium, this time however Mercedes-Benz would break the mould by using not only an aluminium body but also an aluminium chassis. This resulted in a significant weight saving, allowing for an overall curb weight of just 1,620kg.
This U.K.-delivered SLS is finished in Himalayas Middle Grey over an Exclusive Red leather interior and outfitted with the optional B&O sound system, Alcantara steering wheel, and carbon-fibre interior trim. Currently owned by its second registered owner from new, it was delivered new to an individual residing in London in November of 2010 and purchased by the current custodian in 2013. Known to DK since its acquisition by the current owner, it has been well looked after within its current collection. In February 2022, the car went to Mercedes-Benz of Beaconsfield for ‘Service B’, as well as an oil change for the gearbox, new spark plugs, and an MoT.
Quickly becoming a modern classic due to their understated good looks and exceptional performance, this is truly an exceptional SLS has covered just 1,950 miles from new, ready to drive and enjoy by its next custodian. It is currently available to view at our showrooms just outside of London.
