Let me begin with saying, I’m not a guy who knows everything about cars. This is just a preview of SLS AMG Roadster. I’m not rating it. But I’m a big fan of Cars so I thought I’ll get you some update on this upcoming Roadster.
Mercedes-Benz has finally come up with its latest flagship: the SLS AMG Roadster.
The SLS AMG Roadster has an aluminum spaceframe body, a 6.3-liter V8 engine with dry sump lubrication and a seven-speed dual clutch transaxle transmission.
The compact fabric soft top of the SLS AMG Roadster opens and closes in just eleven seconds, and can be operated on the move at speeds up to 31 mph.
The three-layered fabric soft top is a weight-optimized magnesium/steel/aluminum construction, and contributes greatly to the car’s low center of gravity.
Three soft top colors – black, red and beige – are available to suit the nine exterior and eight interior colors.
Using the AMG DRIVE UNIT, the driver of the SLS AMG Roadster is therefore able to choose his own suspension setup. Three modes are available: “Comfort”, “Sport” and “Sport plus”.
AMG Performance Media is activated by pressing the AMG key in the AMG DRIVE UNIT, and operated using the COMAND Controller. Key functions are:
Real-time display of engine oil, coolant and transmission fluid temperature
Real-time display of engine output, torque and accelerator position
Real-time display of individual tire pressures
Real-time display of acceleration time from 0-60 mph (alternatively: quarter-mile)
