According to a report, Mercedes-Benz will be bidding farewell to its SLS sports car at the Los Angeles Motor Show with an introduction of a SLS AMG Final Edition model to be available in limited numbers.
The last edition of the SLS AMG 'Gullwing'The prototype camouflaged images suggest the SLS AMG Final Edition will feature slightly restyled front and rear ends, as well as adopt new air vents, and styling updates around the bonnet and grille. The rear, diffuser and exhaust pipes will probably be updated too. We can also expect some interior changes including special edition plaques.
The limited edition models will be produced from February 2014 until the middle of the year and will be available for standard SLS AMG Coupe and Roadster, as well as the SLS AMG GT and SLS AMG Black Series.
There’s been no word on what the model will pack under its hood, but with the automaker pushing focus towards smaller, turbocharged powerplants, it might be the last time we see the 6.2-litre V8 engine.
A direct replacement for the SLS isn’t expected - however, a smaller, lighter, faster and cheaper sports car known as the GT AMG is due to be introduced later in 2014 or early 2015, and will be powered by a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine.
More details to follow when the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Final Edition model debuts at the Los Angeles Motor Show next week.
