The SLS AMG is Mercedes-Benz’s halo car of performance vehicles. Its gull wing doors and long nose hide away its 6.3-Liter naturally aspirated V8; it’s design has been iconic to the brand for the past four years. But now, the brief reign of the King of Benz must end after only a short time. In mid-2014, we can expect to see the final edition of the SLS AMG.
As sad as it may be, Mercedes-Benz confirmed in a Nov. 5 article from Auto Motor Und Sport that the final gull winged supercar will be shown at the Nov. 20 LA Auto Show. While specifications have yet to be released, the last SLS is expected to see a slight power increase with more sport defined touches to its architecture. Mercedes also confirmed that this will be the last time we see the SLS’s M159 engine under the hood of any AMG. The company will start using smaller, turbocharged engines to increase efficiency from the current naturally aspirated designs.
The last king of this line will likely be titled the “Final Edition SLS AMG,” but we won’t be sure until the unveiling at the LA Auto Show. Until then, keep up with us here to be the first to get full details of the Final Edition SLS AMG as the month goes on.
