Officially Official - The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster, pictures and specifications
Well here it is, finally. Car is basically the same as its gullwing coupe sibling except that it loses the gullwing doors which add so much character to the coupe. The car looks great as a roadster, just as it does in coupe form, and the transition came without much of a weight penalty. Only 40 additional kilograms for the reinforcement of the already stiff aluminum chassis. All other mechanicals remain identical to the coupe, so the same M156 563 horsepower 6.2 liter V8 and the same dual clutch transmission. The car goes on sale in the United States in the fall, this year.
