Tokyo Auto Salon 2013

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Final Edition was only just officially released less than 24 hours ago but the German marque were sure to have one of the 350 models at the Tokyo Motorshow that started yesterday. The car on show looks very aggressive in its shade of red and contrasting black hood and wheels.

These special versions of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT will certainly stand out with their exclusive carbon fibre-look bonnet and rear spoiler, the carbon-fibre front splitter on the front apron, the fixed carbon-fibre rear aerofoil that is so reminiscent of the SLS AMG Coupé Black Series and the intricate AMG forged light-alloy wheels mean that crowds of oohing and aahing passers by will be guaranteed! As on the SLS AMG Coupe Black Series and the SLS AMG GT3, the carbon-fibre bonnet of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition features a very aggresive central air outlet that is certainly not there for show. Apart from effectively dissipating engine heat, this outlet also increases downforce at the front axle.

The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine produces a stunning 591 hp at 6800 rpm and maximum torque of 650 newton metres at 4750 rpm, the high-revving eight-cylinder engine guarantees dynamic driving at its finest and will be sure to produce the creamy burble and war cry of AMG V8′s that we love. It does not just sound good but means the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and can reach 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. The top speed has had to be reigned in to 320 km/h. This epic engine has been linke dot a fast-reacting, variable and emotionally exciting AMG Speedshift DCT 7-speed sports transmission that proves to be the perfect match for the V8. It is built with four shift programmes including the remarkable Race Start and an automatic double-declutching function, the dual-clutch transmission mounted in a transaxle configuration on the rear axle brings with it the perfect balance for top performance.
