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 at the time of its release. This 2012 example is finished in the unique color of AMG Alubeam Silver over a Classic Red Designo Exclusive leather interior. It was originally delivered to Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills, California at a sticker price of $205,795 optioned with an AMG leather/Alcantara steering wheel. Showing just under 5k miles on the odometer, this SLS AMG Coupe is now being offered at auction by its seller out of Texas.
Unique AMG Alubeam Silver (047U) paint was selected from the factory at an additional cost of $12,750. 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 a single-bar front grille. Paint protection film has been applied to the front end, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The factory 19”/20” AMG Twin 5-Spoke light-alloy wheels are mounted with Kumho Ecsta tires dated from 2017 in the front and 2020 in the rear.
The cabin is trimmed in Classic Red Designo Exclusive leather upholstery with die-cast aluminum inlays, Alcantara headliner, and an optional AMG leather/Alcantara steering wheel. Features include heated power-adjustable seats with memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, PARKTRONIC parking sensors, a rearview camera, power-folding side mirrors, Keyless-GO keyless entry and ignition, and a Mercedes COMAND infotainment system with navigation, voice control, and an iPod/MP3 media 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 CARFAX report shows regular dealership maintenance since new, and the most recent entry shows an emissions inspection passed in April of 2021.
