    Default Mercedes SLS AMG is here to fascinate

    Automotive fascination and high tech of the highest order: These are the traits embodied by the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, which took the centre stage at the Mercedes hall at the 2010 Auto Expo.

    This super sports car boasts a purist design, the systematic incorporation of lightweight engineering and superior handling dynamics. At the same time, the SLS delivers the everyday utility and exemplary safety that typifies Mercedes, making the new Gullwing model the ideal synthesis of the strengths of Mercedes-Benz and AMG.

    'Currently, we do not have a right-hand drive for the AMG Desert Gold. We will launch it immediately when we have the right-hand drive option,' Mercedes-Benz India managing director and chief executive Wilfried Aulbur told reporters at the 10th Auto Expo here.

    The company will launch the AMG Desert Gold after completing the modification, suited for the domestic market conditions.

    Under the SLS AMG's long bonnet is a version of the V-8 that we've seen powering every Merc of this generation with an AMG badge-although, this time the engine actually displaces 6.3-liters.

    Output has been tuned to 563 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. The extra power comes partially from all-new intake and exhaust systems and a rejiggered valve train.

    Power is transferred to the wheels through a SpeedShift 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and down an exotic carbon fiber driveshaft before meeting the road at the rear wheels.

    The gearbox features three driving modes for Comfort, Sport, and Sport plus, as well as an automated manual mode. Sixty miles per hour happens in a blistering 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 197 mph.
