The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is one of the most unique supercars we have seen in this past few years. Making its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show four years ago, this beast is well-known for its flamboyant gullwing-styled doors and also the 6.2-liter power plant which is claimed by Mercedes as the most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 engine available.
But unfortunately, we will now have to say goodbye to this German muscle as after just three years in the market, Mercedes is pulling off the SLS AMG from their shelves. According to a report from German publication Auto Motor und Sport, Mercedes will be launching a special edition at the LA auto show next week, and it will be most likely named the Final Edition.
Aside from knowing that the production of this gullwing supercar will seize in the middle of next year, not much information is released about this ‘Final Edition’. The power will most likely be increased from the 583-horsepower found on the standard model, and surely they will be throwing in some styling tweaks for both the exterior and the interior.
The Final Edition SLS will be Mercedes’ last car to feature the famous M159, a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 power plant designed specifically for AMG models. In the future, AMG will be downsizing their engines as well as turbocharging them.
