The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a two-seater luxury supercar developed by Mercedes-AMG to replace the SLR McLaren and is the first Mercedes-Benz designed in-house by AMG. Described as the spiritual successor to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, clearly the design inspiration also drew on the spectacular 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé from 1955. Unveiled in 2009 with sales starting in mid 2010 for European customers, the SLS gained instant fame with its use as the safety car in the 2010 Formula One season and being the cover car for the widely acclaimed Gran Turismo 5 Playstation 3 computer game.
This rare GT version of the powerful SLS looks as stunning as it is powerful. The white paintwork is immaculate and is complemented with a contrasting black interior. Every time the roof-hinged ‘Gullwing’ doors open you know you are in the presence of something special and arriving anywhere in the SLS is a real event. The powerful looks of this Mercedes are accompanied by a sensational soundtrack from the car’s exhaust. In spite of its thunderous performance, this is a surprisingly usable supercar. This low mileage example has been well cared for, always garaged and showing five services in the stamped book with the most recent having been completed recently. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until September 2021 and including the desirable cherished number plate, this is a stunning example of the supercar genre.
