Mercedes SLS AMG flies on top of museum

You can say that the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing has flapped its gull wings to fly on top of a museum terrace. On a more serious note, the German automaker wanted to transport a unit of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing on top of their roof terrace of their own museum located in the city of Stuttgart in Germany. As a symbolic gesture, the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing was lifted by someone operating a 120 ton hydraulic crane no less than 42 meters up on the museum`s roof terrace with its gull wing shaped doors open.

The Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing will be displayed at the Mercedes museum for ten days, between the 6th and the 16th of October this year. For those of you who do not remember, the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing coupe was publicly presented for the first time during the 2009 edition of the Frankfurt Auto Show and has an engine capable of developing 571 horsepower.

This event is even more special if we take into consideration the fact that the museum terrace is not normally open to the public, so we advise all people living in Stuttgart, near Stuttgart or just have a trip planned in this period there to visit the 465 square meter outdoor area of the Mercedes museum.

Michael Bock, Managing Director of Mercedes Benz Museum GmbH, has stated that ``This will be a very emotional experience for our visitors``. He continued by saying that ``This super sports car stands for excitement, passion and high tech. As museum for the past present and future of the automobile we provide an ideal setting for the exclusive presentation of the new Mercedes Benz SLS AMG ``.
