Description

First registered on the 18th April 2013 as one of, we believe, nine UK-supplied carsThe SLS evolved into the GT with higher trim levels and more powerThe 6.3-litre V8 propels the gull-winged supercar to 62mph in 3.7 secondsFinished in the rare colour of Sepang Brown with an Artico Black leather interiorFull main dealer service history, the most recent in October 2018The car presents extremely well with an odometer reading of just under 18,000 miles (atoc)The SLS AMG was designed to be a modern, retro-look edition of the legendary 1950s 300SL Gullwing. Designed by Mark Fetherston, the new Mercedes-Benz supercar adapted the feature of wingdoors that swing upwards with the help of gas struts -just like the doors of the original Gullwing.Dubbed the SLS, for Sport Leicht Super, the car was developed by Mercedes-Benz and their in-house tuning and high-performance outfit, AMG. Built as an extreme high-performance, front-engined, two-seat luxury grand tourer, the SLS soon graced the covers of the motoring press upon its unveiling at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. Available in both Gullwing Coupe and soft-top Roadster versions, they offered sensational supercar performance with the typical Mercedes hallmarks of luxury and high build quality.The finest evolution of the SLS AMG - the SLS AMG GT - was unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Available in Coupeand Roadster form, only 350 of these end-of-the run SLS AMG GT standard cars were produced. It is believed only nine Coupes were supplied to the UK and this example, in Sepang Brown with Artico black leather interior, was first registered on the 18/04/2013 to the first of four registered keepers.The car was purchased by our vendor, a regular client of Silverstone Auctions, on the 16/06/2017 and joined his extensive collection. Used sparingly, with the current odometer showing just under 18,000 miles at the time of cataloguing, the car has been maintained regardless of use and has a comprehensive main dealer service history, with the most recent in October 2018.The SLS GT is arguably one of the only supercars of recent years that offers blistering performance, a stunning soundtrack and supreme comfort wrapped in understated coachwork. Its exotic rivals may offer a more dramatic entrance but it is this car that willcontinue to command respectful nods for years to come.
