Mercedes SLS AMG

The tires of the Mercedes SLS AMG are barely even dirty from its stint at Frankfurt Motor Show and already rumors about a convertible version are running wild. It’s expected that the SLS AMG Roadster could be released in late 2011 as the 2012 model. What’s not known is whether the roadster will feature a folding hard-top like the Mercedes SL convertible or a soft-top intended to lower weight. The powertrain should be identical to the SLS AMG–6.2-liter V8 and seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission–while the price tag will likely be slightly higher than the 178.000 euros.
