Over the past several months, Mercedes has done little to hide the fact they’re developing a new 571 horsepower model known as the SLS AMG – a model developed entirely in-house by AMG that’s based heavily on the legendary 300SL. Up until now, it’s a model that’s been distinguished by its Gullwing-style doors, but today, spy photos have emerged hilighting the fact that like the original 300SL, the SLS too will be available as a convertible.
Due to the camouflage, it’s difficult to divulge too much about the convertible top. However, it’s clear the model features traditional doors, and from a performance standpoint, 0-62mph times when compared to the coupe version of the SLS will likely be a couple tenths off (about 4.0 seconds, as opposed to the 3.8 seconds Mercedes is claiming for the Gullwing).
We’ll keep you posted as new details of the 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG Convertible emerge
