We are pleased to present this 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG finished in Alubeam Silver over a Black Designo Exclusive Leather interior. Carrying on the legacy of the original 300SL Gullwing, the SLS was debuted at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show as the first Mercedes-Benz to have been entirely built and designed by AMG. The car’s styling was critically acclaimed while its 6.2L V8 was the most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine ever offered. This 2011 example was sold new from Sun Motor Cars Mercedes of Pennsylvania with optional equipment including carbon fiber engine compartment covers, an AMG leather/Alcantara steering wheel, carbon fiber mirror covers, and a premium Bang & Olufsen sound system. Diligently maintained under the care of its original owner, this SLS AMG has been recently serviced by Mercedes-Benz of Miami and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida showing just under 4k miles on the odometer.
This SLS was ordered in the rare color of AMG Alubeam Silver at an additional cost of $12,750 along with optional mirror covers in carbon fiber. The paint was applied in a 7-layer process at a specialized facility to achieve a unique molten silver appearance, a labor-intensive process that could be sustained for only 2–3 cars per week during production. The award-winning design of the SLS was penned by Mark Fetherston and incorporates styling cues from the original 300SL including gullwing style doors, large front fender vents, and single-bar front grille. The car is described to have been preserved in excellent overall condition and benefits from a full paint correction and ceramic coating carried out within the last several weeks. Clear paint protection film is also applied over the hood, front fenders, and rocker panels. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean one-owner CARFAX report. The factory 19”/20” AMG Twin 5-Spoke light-alloy wheels come dressed in a set of new Continental ExtremeContact tires.
Inside, you will find a Black Designo Exclusive Leather interior with aluminum trim, Alcantara headliner, and an optional AMG leather/Alcantara steering wheel. The optional $6,400 Bang & Olufsen 1000-watt sound system is equipped while standard features include three-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, auto-dimming mirrors, a power driver’s seat and steering column with memory, Mercedes COMAND multimedia system with navigation and voice control, and an iPod/MP3 interface.
Hand-built by AMG in Affalterbach, the 6.2L M159 DOHC V8 engine delivers up to 563 HP and 479 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an AMG Speedshift 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and lightweight carbon fiber driveshaft. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH is achieved in as little as 3.5 seconds with a top speed governed at 196 MPH. Stopping power comes from 6-piston front and 4-piston rear aluminum brake calipers paired with cross-drilled rotors sized 390mm and 360mm. Standard features include a mechanical limited-slip differential, forged aluminum control arms, a speed-activated rear spoiler, and a 3-stage electronic stability program (ESP). The car has been routinely serviced by the original selling Mercedes-Benz dealer in Pennsylvania from new up until 2021, with the most recent service completed by Mercedes-Benz of Miami in December of 2021.
This sale will include the original owner's manuals, car cover, battery charger, and a clean title. With its highly exclusive paint color and low mileage, this beautifully maintained one-owner SLS AMG makes a fine addition to any world-class car collection.
