Mercedes SLS by the the famous auto mobile company is here with the new Mercedes SLS with new look the front-engined supercar that’s set to replace old Mercedes SLR this year later in 2009.

Mercedes SLS AMG has blocky front end, at the swept-back GT-R style headlights and the SLR-like side vents. Nestled under that long bonnet will sit Merc’s 6.2-litre V8, the engine seen in the C63 AMG, putting out a hefty 563bhp and 479lb ft of torque.

In such a lightweight coupe built primarily from aluminium– the SLS will be that’s good for a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds (faster than a Corvette Z06, as quick as a Ferrari 599) and a top speed firmly in the 200mph region.

Transmission duties by a new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox – the flappy paddles behind the steering wheel – with four modes ranging from ‘controlled efficiency’ (only Merc could come up with that one) to full manual.

Other Really Quite Exciting Bits include a manually controlled rear spoiler and an ‘AMG’ button, allowing the driver to instantly call up a preferred set-up, just like BMW’s ‘M’ button.
