The AMG SLS has been a huge hit for a number of reasons. Primarily, it created a halo supercar for the Mercedes-Benz line-up just as the messy McLaren partnership was coming to a close.
Even better? The car cost a fraction of the SLR’s price – both to build and in terms of engineering pride.
By engineering the SLS in-house, nearly from scratch: AMG proved itself worthy of additional product development responsibilities and able to handle a car’s creation from almost start to finish.
But the SLS has always burned very, very hot. Since its arrival in 2009 as a 2010 model year, the car’s gullwing doors and Clarkson hijinks ruled the year’s car entertainment agenda.
The SLS also earned itself the coveted cover shot on Sony’s Gran Turismo 5 – and a special place in the game itself.
All this supernova activity – sadly – means the poor SLS is worn out, dull and boring just four years after its debut.
As AMG preps the SLC successor to this masterpiece, it will also build 350 copies of this hot SLS GT Final Edition.
While this is not specified on the order forms, perhaps the AMG folks could ship along four crates of extra wheels and tires as a bonus?
Most buyers will need a replacement within a few months anyway!
This stomping V-8 beast is available in coupe or cabrio versions, and is expected to sell out very quickly.
