2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS-Class Preview

Pros: Those gullwing doors. That front fascia. This is a driver’s Merc if ever there was one. 

Cons: There are only a few SLS models being produced for purchase as this model is being referred to as the AMG GT Final Edition.  

2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Price & Fuel Economy: Whether you opt for the coupe or the roadster, you’re definitely going to have to dish out the dollars to ride in this immensely satisfying track-ready sports car. 

  • 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupe Final Edition $248,000
  • 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster Final Edition $254,300 

Average fuel economy numbers for both are in the 15L/100km range, but then if you purchase a car of this caliber you’re hardly worried about trips to the pumps, now are you? 

Powertrain: Both the coupe and roadster AMG GT are powered by a potent 6.2L V8 mill that produces 583 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 100km/hr is reached in just 3.7 seconds, and all that power is sent to the rear wheels and controlled via an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports automatic transmission. 

Changes and Improvements: The SLS AMG GT Final Edition went on sail last spring, and since then has seen no changes. It still features exposed carbon fibre hood, front splitter and front apron. AMG-forged light-alloy wheels, and special interior trims and features. No changes were made mechanically for this special edition.
