New 2013 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT sports added horsepower and performance

And just when we thought that nothing could get better than the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, the automaker pulled the veil off the newest version of the modern-day rendition of the Gullwing, the SLS AMG GT! The new 2013 GT model comes with added power, a recalibrated transmission, and better suspension settings, making it a powerhouse larger than the roaring original. Also, this version has the blood of the GT3 motorsports version pumping through its veins and sports a 6.3-liter V8 with peak power increased to 583hp against the previous 563 delivered by the original model. With the torque output staying fixed at 479 pound-feet, the 2013 SLS AMG GT comes with an optimized seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and is available as a coupe or a convertible.

Capable of touching the 60mph mark in 3.6 Seconds, this one sports an electronically limited top speed of a sweet 197mph and electronically-controlled dampers in all contributing to a better and more aggressive performance than its predecessor! Pricing is not known yet, but the first sales are scheduled for November 2012.
