Footnotes

  • "For anyone wishing to give their Mercedes that extra personal touch, Mercedes-AMG GmbH has just the answers. The Daimler-Chrysler subsidiary offers the combined experience of Mercedes-Benz and AMG in the field of high-quality enhancements for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and puts the emphasis firmly on individuality when creating the customer's dream Mercedes." - Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

    AMG, which is now the official performance division of Mercedes-Benz, has a long history of producing high-performance derivatives of Mercedes' standard production vehicles, and these improved versions enjoy an enthusiastic following world-wide, with prominent figures of the motorsports, entertainment, sport, and business communities being counted among aficionados.

    With the introduction of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in 2010, the Affalterbach-based firm took a significant step forward. First seen at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and acknowledged as a tribute to the legendary 300 SL 'Gullwing' coupé of the 1950s – arguably the world's first supercar – the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was notable as the first car to be designed in-house by AMG. A collectors' item from the day it was announced, the newcomer featured 'Gullwing' doors like its illustrious predecessor and succeeded the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren at the top of the German manufacturer's range. Styled by Mercedes-Benz's Mark Fetherston, the SLS AMG received numerous prestigious design awards, and is the only automobile ever to have won the (gold) Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany. An open roadster version was introduced for 2011.

    Boasting a chassis/body of mainly aluminium construction, the SLS (Sport Licht Super) was powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine producing 563bhp initially (572bhp in the car offered here) - the most powerful normally aspirated production car engine of its day - while the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission was similarly state-of-the-art. A rear wing, extendable at high speeds, kept the SLS stable at its near-200mph maximum, while its low weight (3,573lbs) helped the car lap the Mercedes-Benz test track quicker than its SLR McLaren predecessor. Not surprisingly, given its pedigree, the SLS AMG proved very popular with racing drivers, Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton among them, while the list of celebrity owners includes Eddie Murphy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Pacino, Roger Federer, Sylvester Stallone, and Tom Hanks. Several limited edition versions were introduced, including a GT3 racer, leading up to the SLS AMG GT Final Edition of 2014. Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers has said that there are no plans for a successor, so for the time being the SLS AMG remains the ultimate expression of the noble 'Gullwing' tradition.

    A 2011 model built to Swiss market specification, this left-hand drive example was ordered new by the current vendor in 2010 and has covered only a relative handful of kilometres since delivery. Highlights of its mouth-watering specification include the following:

    Seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission
    Reversing camera
    Garage door opener
    LED daytime driving lights
    Auto dimming interior and driver's side mirrors
    Memory kit (seats, steering column, mirrors)
    AMG performance steering wheel
    Tyre pressure control
    Electrical folding exterior mirrors
    Anti-theft warning device
    Automatic climate control
    COMAND APS with DVD changer
    Media interface (UCI)
    Headlamp cleaning system
    Bang & Olufsen Beo Sound
    Interior monitoring system
    Bi-xenon headlamps
    Emission control system with EU5 technology

    Finished in Alubeam Silver (Metallic) with Designo Exclusive natural leather/light brown woven leather interior, this collectible modern Mercedes is offered with a copy of the sales receipt listing its specification in full.

    The SLS AMG has been on static display since acquisition and will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note the Lot will attract 20% import VAT if it is to remain in the UK.
