Wednesday Wallpaper: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Mercedes-Benz has released several photos of the upcoming SLS AMG ahead of the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.  A full press release has not been issued yet, but the information we do know is that the SLS features 300SL-inspired styling including the signature Gullwing doors.  Power will come from a 563-horsepower 6.3-liter V8, and will propel the SLS to 60 in 3.7 seconds and reach terminal velocity at 197 mph.

We’re a bit torn on the styling, but one thing is for sure…the SLS stands out amongst the flood of Lotus Evora look-alikes in the supercar world.
