German automaker Mercedes-Benz has finally uncovered its final edition in the SLS line up, just days ahead of its debut at the LA Auto Show.
The car, christened as SLS AMG GT Final Edition, will come in coupe and roadster versions and would be produced in limited numbers. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is also expected to be showcased at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, alongside the company's new powerful S65 AMG. The launch of its final edition SLS AMG also marks the retirement of four-year-old SLS Sports car line up from the company.
The 'Goodbye' model of SLS AMG packs the 6.3-litre V8 engine, which can churn out a power of 583bhp, along with a maximum torque of 673 Nm. The car accommodates seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission system that assists in sending the power to the rear wheels. Other changes include carbon fibre hood, leather upholstery and new bumpers. The full specifications and price are expected to be announced at motor shows in late November.
Talking about the final model SLS AMG, Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, said the model would be the "ultimate, particularly attractive variant of our super sports car," as quoted by AutoMobile.
Rumours suggest the company is contemplating yet another model in lieu of its retiring SLS AMG and the new model is likely to replace SLS in late 2014. According to reports, the new model would come with the 5.5-litre biturbo V8 engine.
