The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG promises to be one hell of a supercar, with its massive 6.2-liter V8 propelling the retro-inspired model to 317 km/h (197 mph), thanks to the massive 571 HP and 650 Nm of torque.
For those of you really interested in buying the new model, Mercedes-Benz has just set up a car configurator, located at this address, and revealed the pricing for the SLS AMG, which is now available for pre-ordering.
Starting at €149,000 (that’s €177,310 if you include 19% VAT), it will have options like a ceramic braking system (€9500) AMG customized performance suspension (€1200) various flavors of wheels like light-alloy 5-twin-spoke ones (€950) or a set of forged 10-spoke ones (€2000), a carbon fiber engine cover (€4000), and even various pain schemes, from the affordable “Monza grey magno” (€3,250) to the outrageous “Allubeam silver” (€10,000).
On the inside, you’ll be able to outfit the SLS with an AMG performance steering wheel wrapped leather and Alcantara (€400), a set of sport seats (€3300), a carbon fiber trim line (€3500), a nappa leather upholstery (€2500), even a memory package for the front seats and steering wheel (€1225), not to mention a six disc DVD changer (€660) which can be connected to an exclusive Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system (€5900).
Overall, it seems that although Mercedes is marketing the SLS AMG as a rather affordable sports car, with some of the luxuries included here, it will easily jump the €200k mark.
