2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Styling

The gullwinged Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupe has, perhaps, the stronger tie to history--and may be the more coveted on the concours lawn in a half-century's time--but the for our money, the SLS Roadster is the more elegant choice, gaining a long and lean profile as it loses its roof.

Whichever form of the SLS AMG you choose (GT, GT Roadster, or Black Series), the basic proportions are the same: an almost impossibly long hood, low-slung stance, rearward cabin, and exceptionally short rear end, all hunkered over a wide stance and masculine, aggressive cues at each end.

In the Black Series, those aggressive cues tend toward the racing end of the spectrum, with canards up front and a wing out back to balance aerodynamic loads--and nod toward the SLS AMG GT3 racing car. The SLS AMG GT Coupe is rounder, smoother, and simpler, but the Roadster's loss of the gullwings gives it the gift of less awkward proportions around the passenger area, leaving a stunningly long, lean, and low profile that's as ballistic as it is beautiful.

Unique gullwings on the SLS AMG GT coupe give way to a stylish, sleek form in the Roadster, while the Black Series is pure track fury.

Inside, all versions of the SLS AMG offer modern Mercedes-Benz luxury: throne-like seats, a well-formed and comfortable steering wheel, high-tech gauges and displays, combining to form a modern and yet old-world interpretation of luxury, sport, and refinement.
