Spy Images of the Next Generation Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster and Coupe Leaked
|   Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Latest images of the next generation Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster have come in and this vehicle was spotted undergoing on road tests. This vehicle was seen along with a face lifted coupe of the same and we expect both vehicles to go on sale fall 2015, although a specified date is yet to be revealed. These proto types are of an early version and we are yet to get confirmation whether the final version will sport similar exterior design.

However, its front and rear bumpers, grille, side panels, rims and bonnet have been modified over its predecessor.
Its exterior has been camouflaged and hence we could not properly get a view of its exterior. It is too early to comment on its interior trim and technical specifications and insiders have refused to reveal details.

The roadster is fairly aesthetic although this is not surprising as it is Mercedes Benz SLS AMG at the end of the day. These spy images have sparked up rumors in the market, especially since leaked images of Porsche's next generation 911 had surfaced a few weeks back. This vehicle – codenamed C 190 - is the officially successor to its last generation SLS AMG and we expect it to feature a price tag between £80,000- £120,000.

Mercedes Benz is however not expected to replace its 6.2 liter turbo charged V8 engine displacing 591 BHP and this engine should power the next generation SLS AMG Roadster and Coupe. Acceleration from 0 – 60 MPH should hence be within 3.7 seconds while a top speed of 200 MPH is expected on this vehicle while CO2 emission should be well within 308 g/km.

These figures are expected keeping in mind the weight of these new vehicles, which Mercedes Benz is yet to reveal. Therefore, change in these figures is a possibility. High end models should be priced within £165,000 and £178,000 as crossing these would result in impractical market strategy. The SLS AMG is currently a reputed roadster and hence Mercedes Benz is expected to give significant though while working on its exterior.

We are hopeful of a modified exterior although these images show a somewhat similar design based on its current version. Aerodynamically these vehicles are best in class although technologically they are not close to McLaren's creations. McLaren has outdone all of its competitors with its advanced P1 and we do not expect SLS AMG to rival this machine. However, premium performance figures are expected and we will keep you posted periodically.

These sightings are a boon in itself as Mercedes Benz was long overdue for a face lifted SLS AMG Roadster and Coupe. Ripples are flowing through global markets since these revelations and we expect likes of BMW's M4 and Audi to rival this machine. Mercedes Benz finds stiff market competition from fellow German and other European brands and Bentley and Jaguar should come up with fitting responses soon enough. Primary power displacement close to 600 BHP is expected off this machine although we will be happy with figures close to this.
