2012 SLS AMG Roadster
Just in from a Texas restorer and collector, this is an excellent example of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster.
This 2012 SLS AMG Roadster in Diamond White Metallic has LESS THAN 21k miles.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG family doubled in size for 2012 with the addition of the convertible roadster. The SLS gullwing coupe was built as a replacement to the SLR, the supercar Mercedes-Benz co-developed with McLaren. The two SLS variants are mechanically and visually identical until you reach the beltline where the coupe features a pair of iconic gullwing doors, while the roadster sports a soft convertible top. The roadster gained just 88 pounds despite the reinforcements added to compensate for the loss of a fixed roof.
Under the hood is AMG’s hand-built 6.2-liter, naturally aspirated V-8 engine that puts out 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque; it’s mated to an advanced twin-clutch, seven-speed automatic transmission with four driving modes that maximize comfort or quick shifts for spirited driving. In the 2012 model, AMG offered a new adaptive suspension system that features three damping modes at the push of a button and the AMG Performance Media, an onboard computer that displays the temperatures of vital fluids and lateral and linear acceleration.
Both SLS AMG models feature front fenders with wide air vents, a long hood, and a menacing front fascia that features a wide, rectangular grille and daytime running LED lights. The coupe is distinguishable by its iconic gullwing doors, while the roadster sports a soft convertible top that is available in three colors. The SLS rides 19-inch wheels in the front and 20 inches in the back, while a retractable rear wing deploys only during high speeds, which ensures a clean look for the trunk lid.
The interior is a mix of sporty and luxury elements including leather-wrapped seats and steering wheel, carbon fiber trim pieces, round, metallic HVAC vents, and AMG-style gauges. The instrument panel features LED lights that help the driver prepare for upshifts during spirited driving. The SLS cockpit also features the Mercedes-Benz COMAND system, which includes navigation, satellite radio, HD radio, and Bluetooth. The roadster comes standard with AIRSCARF, which blows warm air through vents behind the driver’s and passenger’s neck.
The SLS roadster is powered by AMG’s hand-built 6.2-liter V-8 engine that puts out 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed to the rear wheels via AMG’s advanced, dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission that features four driving modes: Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, and Manual. The powertrain combination thrusts the SLS from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds.
The SLS AMG comes standard with eight airbags, which includes protection for front, knee, and head. The roadster has fixed integrated rollbars to protect occupants in the event of a roll over. Both SLS AMG models come standard with ABS, three-stage electronic stability control, electronic brake assist and blind spot assist.
