Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition is the gull-winged sports car’s last hurrah


Mercedes Benz has now made it official that 2014 will be the last year for the amazing SLS AMG. Making a debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Mercedes SLS which was a modern reincarnation of the iconic 300SL Gullwing has had a great run. But it’s time to say goodbye and to give it a fitting farewell, Mercedes has announced the SLS AMG GT Final Edition, which will debut at the LA Auto Show, with a limited run of 350 units. The German automaker along with its performance wing has made sure that the SLS’s last hurray is special before the curtains go down.

The gull-winged sports car’s final edition is mechanically similar to the original SLS AMG GT with the same naturally aspirated 6.2 liter V8 engine which produces 591hp. The Final Edition will be available in both coupe and roadster versions limited to 350 units in total. It features carbon fiber hood, front splitter and sportier new bumpers. In the words of Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG, the SLS AMG GT Final Edition is the “ultimate, particularly attractive variant of our super sports car.”
