Used, but not so much – Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster goes under hammer

Home AMG Used, but not so much – Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster goes under hammer

It may not look as breathtaking as the coupe model with gullwing doors that are thrown open onto the roof, but the roadster is just as exclusive a supercar can be. A Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster is going under hammer this summer.

This Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster can be called anything but a used car. Having traveled only 10,700 miles (17,220 kilometers), the convertible in LeMans looks as good as new. 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch wheels at the rear and red brake calipers confirm its sporty DNA.

The SLS AMG Roadster in question features a three-layered fabric soft top that can be closed at speed of up to 30 mph (50 km/h) keeps the noise out of the sporty interior. There, one can find a 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system, a steering wheel with a flattened bottom section, wrapped in leather and Alcantara, a carbon fiber interior trim and aluminum pedals.

The 2012 convertible is set in motion by a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, just like the Coupe, capable of producing 563 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. The car is equipped with a 7-speed AMG Speedshift DCT gearbox and it can run from a standstill to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.8 seconds. It can hit a top speed of 197 mph (317 km/h).

The auctioneers hope to get anywhere between $120,000 and $170,000, but considering the low mileage, it could go way beyond their highest expectations.

  • Great post Elena.

    The Mercedes Benz SLS Roadster is indeed a great sports car. Even without the gull-wing doors, the SLS roadster is still an exquisite sports car. The benefit of having the roadster may be the convenience of opening and closing its doors. The 1000-watts Bang & Olufsen speaker is definitely a plus item, but I think the driver can also weigh the 1000-watts AMG exhaust that sounds so dearly.

    I am surprised that this SLS Roadster has a low-mileage count after all these years, but I also believe that it can be a wonderful road-trip car for a romantic getaway. Of course, you couldn’t fit too much in its trunk but driving cross-country in the SLS roadster sounds extremely exciting. After all, what could you say to “The Best or Nothing”?
