Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe price

In case you do not know yet, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG both the Coupe and the Roadster are in the middle of the price range when it comes to the exotic sports cars. The starting price was established at $200.000 in the US and EUR190.000 in Germany. Now, Mercedes-Benz is the finest car manufacturer and it is now looking to cover every single niche, no matter how big it is or how small it is. We should not be surprised to hear that the Germans have set their eyes on the entry-level premium ports car category with a new model priced at around $100.000. So that you know, models like the Porsche 911 and the Audi R8, but also the Corvette Stingray and Jaguar F-Type Coupe can also be found in this segment. The smaller sibling will be called SLC AMG and according to the carmaker, the model will go on sale in 2015. In the photo gallery you can see several photos of the low and wide SLS AMG.

Apparently this model will not come with gullwing doors in order to reduce costs. In the same gallery you can also take a quick look at the new AMG model. The two-seater model will ride on a modified front-mid-engine platform sourced from the SLS AMG. These also come with a shorter wheelbase and overall length. In comparison to the previous, bigger model, this new one will be lighter. There is no precise information on the choices of engine, but chances are it will have three turbocharged V8 power plants delivering between 450 horsepower and 500 horsepower in the Black Series edition. There might also be an entry level turbocharged V6 unit as well, but nothing is for sure, yet. We hope you will enjoy the photo gallery prepared.
