We are pleased to present this 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe finished in Le Mans Red Metallic over a Porcelain Nappa leather interior. Introduced as the spiritual successor to the legendary 300SL Gullwing Coupe, the SLS AMG is a hand-assembled GT-style supercar powered by a robust 6.2 L V8 engine rated at over 560 HP. Sold new from Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills, this 2011 example remains in absolutely pristine collectors’ condition with just over 1,600 miles shown on the odometer. It is now being offered for auction by its seller in Massachusetts complete with all original books and accessories as well as a clean Carfax report.
Having always been kept in climate-controlled storage, the Le Mans Red Metallic paint is reported to be like-new (detailed images and paint meter readings are provided in the photo gallery). This Coupe is most recognizable for its roof-hinged doors which pay homage the 300SL Gullwing of 1954. Other noteworthy details include a retractable rear wing which also acts as an air brake, a lightweight aluminum bodyshell, an F1-style rear fog lamp/reverse light, and 7-spoke light alloy wheels mounted over optional carbon ceramic brakes with gold calipers.
The cockpit is upholstered in Black and Porcelain Nappa leather with contrasting black stitching, seat piping and optional carbon fiber trim. Amenities include automatic dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and a 7-inch multimedia screen which is situated between the two center air vents. The interior is said to be like-new with all electronics remaining fully functional.
The Coupe is powered by an AMG-designed 6.2 L V8 engine which is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission with mechanical limited slip differential. 563 HP is delivered to the rear wheels through a lightweight carbon fiber drive shaft allowing the SLS to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.5 seconds while reaching a top speed governed at 196 MPH. Optional carbon ceramic brakes have also been factory equipped for this example at a cost of approximately $12,500. This SLS is said to have been properly maintained with all due service up to date including a safety recall in 2019 as well as a very recent oil and brake fluid change.
This sale will include the original books and manuals, a set of 2 keys and a clean Carfax report. Easily one of the most well-preserved examples on the market, this immaculate SLS AMG is not to be overlooked.
