Mercedes has released a huge photo gallery of the SLS AMG Gullwing

The German automaker Mercedes Benz has released a huge photo gallery containing 35 high resolution pictures showing their newest super car, the SLS AMG Gullwing. The Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing gets its power from a AMG V8 engine mounted up front that has an output of 571 horsepower. We expect to see further details and another mega gallery of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing very soon while the public debut of the new super car will take place next week in Germany at the 2009 edition of the Frankfurt Auto Show.

In the pictures below we can see the car from a lot of angles. The center of attention of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing is represented by the doors that, when open, look like a gull flying away in the wind. The design patterns and cues are very interesting chosen, combining a modern look with a hint of the old times. It is clear that the new Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing is a lot different in comparison to the previous super car, the SLR McLaren. Some people might say that the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing looks a little (more?) like the BMW Z8. I honestly do not know what to say regarding the possible inspiration from the BMW Z8, although certain styling cues look common. I also think that certain styling cues are ``borrowed`` from older Mercedes models that were produced in the 1990s and in the first couple of years of the 21st century. The design of the new Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing does not impress me at all, to be honest. The overall design pattern is too ``rectangular`` if you want. The car does not look at all aerodynamic or modern. Still, the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing does not give you a retro feeling at all. I think it is a very weird combination. Still, it is too early to be making verdicts. We will have to wait for more details, official photos and even a driving footage until we can give a clear verdict.
