Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: the Next Stage



The latest news and pictures on the much-anticipated Mercedes SLS AMG ‘gullwing’ focus on the car’s interior, as the manufacturer drip-feeds details to the waiting world. First we had officially released ‘spy’ shots of a disguised car; and now we have close-up interior shots, along with design sketches of the car’s exterior.

Inside, there’s an understandably high-tech theme to the cabin, with plenty of design cues from the aero industry. A ‘wing-like’ fascia faces the driver, with a three-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel and aeronautically styled gearshift controlling the seven-speed gearbox.

The dramatic lines of the car’s body are harder to judge, since design sketches inevitably romanticise the final impression… so we’ll just have to wait and see what comes next.
