Mercedes launches SLS GT

Jay Nagley

Mercedes has announced a GT version of its SLS supercar.

Power from the AMG 6.3-litre V8 front mid-engine is 591 PS at 6800 rpm, while the maximum torque is 650 Nm at 4750 rpm. The SLS AMG GT accelerates from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) – why could they have not set the limiter two mph higher, we wonder?
