A gullwing car without gull wings: an odd quest – and a remarkable result. As a roadster, the SLS AMG also wins you over with its athletic/ purist design. Whether open or closed, the sight of the SLS AMG Roadster is always a treat. Its proportions are ideal: a long hood, a greenhouse positioned far towards the back, a short rear. Add to this the automatically extending wings, the long wheelbase, the wide track and the short overhangs. In short, the SLS AMG Roadster exudes supreme dynamism and an authentic charisma. As a dream car for a new generation, it exists in the tradition of the legendary 300 SL Roadster from the 1950s. Like it, the SLS AMG has an extremely wide radiator grille with a large Mercedes star and the wing-shaped cross fin. The fins on the hood and on the vehicle flanks also remind you of the classic dream car.
