Selling nostalgia and technology.

One of the most alluring sports cars?

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG that will be revealed in Frankfurt now has official photos.

The car has an aluminum space frame with gullwing doors, an AMG 6.3-liter V-8 front-mid engine developing 571 horsepower and 650 Nm (470 lb. ft.) of torque and dry sump lubrication. The motor works with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission in a transaxle configuration.

Handling of the 1620 kg (3,571 lb) car should be of the highest level with sports suspension with aluminum double wishbones.
