Chief Designer at Mercedes-Benz, Gorden Wagener: "Like the butterfly model, pure design, sporty drew attention immediately if the roof open or closed, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Roadster SLS is a visual delight impressive.! "Perfect proportions are particularly memorable: a long hood, the greenhouse well positioned in the back and cut back automatically extended rear spoiler addition, wheelbase, wide track and short overhangs - soon. The SLS AMG Cabriolet reflects the effortless performance and a real charisma remember Sections pronounced shoulder muscles tense, and suggest that pure power combined with large wheels -. 265/35 ZR 19 (front) and 295/30 ZR 20 (rear).

The coffee Sepang AMG attractive metallic paint finish and weight-optimized forged wheels in 10-spoke design, painted in matt black with polished rim flange are new options available.

Recalls SL 300 roadster features the classic dream car of the decade of 1950, include not only the wide grille, with its large Mercedes star and the fin-shaped wing cross, but the fins on the hood and sides the vehicle. As the SLS Roadster Mercedes-Benz AMG, the 300SL Roadster was later found in the original 300 SL Gullwing, but unlike the AMG SL dream cars are both available at the same time.

atmosphere inside an aircraft cockpit

The interior design is still impressive from the outside language, and evokes associations with an airplane cockpit: Key features include the board and the air vents and adjustable wing, cross recalls the jet engine nozzle. The center console mast extended, solid metal and leverage the new e-SELECT in the form of thrust control of an aircraft are also design features adopted by the aviation world. Another detail discreet finer the AMG emblem engraved on the shifter leather-wrapped.

AMG Drive - which, like many other internal features are available in real carbon fiber - is a central control unit in the center console: it allows the driver to select settings for your vehicle, including the adaptation of voluntary Adaptive sports suspension AMG. AMG performance steering wheel with its premium leather upper and a flat bottom section gives you complete control of the vehicle. The transition from the paddles and the structure of the wheel is less than solid metal.

Fully automatic top weight optimized

Sensual experience in the 2012MY Roadster SLS increases when the hood is open, and powerful, naturally aspirated eight-cylinder 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque states and makes the heart beat faster with quirks AMG eight cylinders. The soft fabric top can be opened and closed when traveling at speeds up to 31 km / h, the process fully automatic opening and closing takes only eleven seconds. The pilot must use the equipment properly integrated into the ceiling at the front of the armrest. When open, the hood is large retracted behind the seats in a Z-fold configuration The three soft colors - black, red and beige - are available to meet out of nine and eight interior color.

three-layer fabric has a weight-optimized soft magnesium / steel / aluminum, and contributes significantly to the car a low center of gravity. Soft is committed to seamlessly into the rear window of safety glass of an intense single-layer. Flush, gap-free transition from the outer roof skin and the rear window to keep the wind noise low. A continuous, flexible, soft pocket water capture rainwater and directs its platform with two openings on each side. volume of the trunk is 6.1 cubic meters of the roof open or closed, and about the same as SLS AMG Coupe (6.2 cubic meters).

Excellent material and finish

metal of the finest leather, matte finish strong or voluntary genuine carbon fiber trim to create an exclusive atmosphere and corresponds with the authentic feeling of the cockpit. Precisely executed and decorative contrast stitching enhances the visual impact of increases hand eye and demonstrates the attention to detail that are hallmarks of the Mercedes design.

AMG Performance Media and Bang & Olufsen optional highlights

In addition, Bang & Olufsen's BeoSound AMG surround sound system, a highlight of the second entertainment optional AMG Performance Media. In an unprecedented way, this sport-inspired amalgam of various wireless data display engine, for example, linear and lateral acceleration and lap times on track. AMG Performance Media will be activated by pressing the AMG AMG Drive Unit, and works using the COMAND controller. The main features at a glance:

• Real-time monitor engine oil, coolant and transmission oil temperature

• Real time display of engine power, torque and throttle position

• Real time display of individual tire pressure

• Real time display of the acceleration time from 0 to 60 mph (variant: a quarter of a mile)

• Real time display of lateral acceleration and braking performance and associated linear accelerator position, including memory function

• Registration of individual lap times on a closed circuit with the field of time and memory

• Integrate data memory unit to save the settings and start the race start

The various functions of the AMG Performance media are represented by the color display integrated into the dashboard. Three screens are available at any given time, the most important square in the center. online digital instruments with red needles simulated exceptional legibility.

More specifically reinforced aluminum frame, lightweight vacuum

In addition to the comfort are the key factor in driving pleasure in the new SLS AMG Roadster excellent performance. The basis of this body is the innovative design: chassis and body is aluminum, intelligent design that combines a lightweight high strength. With a curb weight of 3661 pounds (estimate), the only 88 pounds more than the Roadster Coupe. The result is a remarkable power to weight ratio of 6.5 pounds per horsepower.

To achieve the same level of driving dynamics - without a fixed roof, Mercedes-Benz AMG Roadster SLS includes several features specifically designed to strengthen the body, including side skirts with a thicker wall and new divisions. The dashboard cross member is pressed against the windshield frame and center console with additional spacers, and a curved spacer between the hood and tank forces of the rear axle. The absence of a roof Gullwing doors means that the sunroof SLS AMG potentiation Traverse rear seats fixed to support reversal of the protection system. It also responds to the 250 watt subwoofer Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG high-end sound system.

All this prevents unwanted vibrations right from the beginning, and it is unnecessary to use additional vibration dampers weight often found in sports cars to open the roof. The weight aluminum chassis optimized weighs 536 pounds, tipping the scales at just 4.5 kilos more than the butterfly model.

mixture of smart materials and low center of gravity

50 per cent of intelligent design, weight-optimized aluminum chassis is made of aluminum, 26 percent of aluminum plates, 18 percent of cast aluminum and 6 percent of the steel. Maximum occupant safety requires the use of ultra-high strength steel, heat formed in the A-pillars.

The entire vehicle was designed to achieve the lowest possible center of gravity. This applies to the connection points lower transmission and axles, as well as the arrangement of the rigid body structure, which was kept as low as possible. Examples include rigid connections to bending and torque between the front and back of the cell and the safety of passengers, which were designed to use force routes are as low as possible.

Passive safety

aluminum space frame is based on passive safety. comprehensive security features that are fixed roll-over protection system, a three-point safety belts and seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters, and eight airbags: adaptive front airbags and two side bags kneebags integrated seat and two window beltlines air-bag in the door.

Standard Blind Spot Assist helps the driver a visual warning signal and an audible alarm if the danger of collision with another vehicle is detected when the bandwidth.

A powerful AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine 563 hp

Mercedes-Benz AMG Roadster SLS is the engine of the same model Gullwing muscle. 6.3-liter V8 from 563 hp maximum 6,800 rpm makes the SLS open-top, one of the most powerful sports car in its segment. Its power to weight ratio is 6.5 kg per horsepower. This naturally aspirated engine produces a maximum torque of 479 pounds-feet of 4750 rpm. The convertible bond SLS AMG accelerates from zero to 60 km / h 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 197 km / h (electronically limited) - which means that the Roadster Gullwing is almost the same performance.

Attending high-speed 6.3-liter V8 engine is typical of powerful racing engines. It reacts instantly and easily with the accelerator pedal movements. dry sump lubrication system allows the use of much less installation on the vehicle, lower the priority of high lateral acceleration and thrilling driving dynamics.

Require the objective of fuel consumption

Despite its sporty character without compromise, the fuel was also discussed. Improving the efficiency of the coating familiar AMG-exclusive, twin low friction in the electric arc sprayed onto the cylinder walls and on demand, oil supply and short-optimized intelligent generator: during phases of tolerance motor, the kinetic energy used to recharge the battery instead simply lost to produce heat. Conversely, the generator was passed to the loading operation during acceleration, reducing the load on the engine. sophisticated catalyst technology enables current emission standards and future Euro-5 and LEV 2 ULEV be met.

transmission configuration corresponding Rev-bridge and the torque tube

AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine delivers plenty of power to the rear axle via a drive shaft Lightweight carbon fiber - a setup similar to that used in auto racing DTM C-Class Touring. Rev-matching the transmission is mounted on the rear (drive axle), and connected to the engine compartment through the torque tube. Carbon fiber is the speed of rotation of the motor torque tube. The benefits of a sophisticated solution for rigid connection lost engine and transmission, and law enforcement support, in turn, optimal and the torque generated.

DCT AMG Speed ​​Shift 7-speed sports transmission has quick shifting without traction loss - in as little as 100 milliseconds. The driver can choose between four different driving modes: "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport), "S +" (Sport plus) or "M" (Manual). In sports, More Sport and manual settings automatic rev-matching feature activates all can be easily selected via the rotary switch on the AMG DRIVE UNIT. RACE START mode provides optimum traction for launches at full power from a death sentence - such as mechanical differential lock, which is integrated in the compact transmission case.

axle suspension with double wishbones sophisticated

The front transverse axle configuration of central motor provides a more ideal weight back in front 47-53 percent. Mounting the engine behind the front axle has created a perfect driving dynamics with a specific direction, agility class, low inertia of spontaneous changes in direction and traction. All four wheels are in double-wishbone suspension with track rod, a technology proven in racing by Formula 1. With a double wishbone axle, the location of the wheels and suspension functions remain distinct elastic spring and the legs are compatible with the lower triangle. Double wishbone setup with camber stiffness and positively locates the wheel with a minimum of elastic movements, giving the driver a feeling of good contact with the road while driving to the limit.

Triangles, steering knuckles and front and rear hub carriers are made entirely of cast aluminum - significantly reducing unsprung weight, improving the setup, including suspension response. The long wheelbase of 105.5 inches, not only the results of stability in a straight line motion, but also changes in the lower wheel load, significantly reducing the tendency of the vehicle to dive and squat during braking and acceleration. The width of the track width - 66.2 inches front, 65.1 inches rear - gives small changes in wheel load from the inner to the outer wheel during cornering, the tires to maintain grip.

New Adaptive AMG sports suspension

New AMG sports suspension, electronically controlled adaptive dampers is available in an alternative to optional AMG sports suspension. It allows the damping characteristics have been changed a button. Using the button on the AMG DRIVE UNIT, the driver can choose their own set of suspensions. Three modes: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. " The current status is shown on the instrument panel.

"Comfort" provides a sensitive reaction with soft damping, while in Sport mode dampers have an answer much more severe depending on the driving situation. This leads not only to improve contact with the road, but also effectively suppresses the rolling and pitching. Sport Plus is ideal for challenging laps on a race track: In addition to the higher damping force, this condition comes with some specific control algorithms have been designed for sporty driving style. The new Variable Suspension options will also be available for SLS AMG Coupe in the future.

direct steering, differential and 3-stage ESP ®

The steering rack and pinion steering provides a direct constant feeling a constant ratio of 13.6:1 mechanics in phase with the high expectations placed in a super sports car. The steering offers speed-sensitive assistance and driver information improves the speed increases, valuable when driving in a straight line at high speed. Steering gear assembly in front of the engine in the comprehensive framework allows the engine is set very low. The SLS has a 3-stage ESP ® as standard, provided that the driver access to the three "ESP ON", "ESP Sport" and "ESP OFF" by pressing a button. In "ESP OFF" operation, the brake pedal restores all the normal functions of ESP ®.

Acceleration skid control (ASR) system with traction logic is working in all three ESP ® mode. If one of the driving wheels start to rotate, in particular the brake applied to improve the grip substantially - especially in conjunction with standard multi-disc brake mechanical limited slip differential. This means that engine power is transferred more efficiently to the road during aggressive driving.

Optional AMG high-performance ceramic brake double

The system AMG high performance braking with disc brakes in front of two pieces of very short stopping distances even under enormous stress. brake calipers painted in red on the four corners are optional. The optional ceramic brakes with two rooms, even more disks to provide more braking performance. The ceramic brake discs run at operating temperatures even higher thanks to their high hardness, combined with an impressive weight loss of about 40 percent. Reducing unsprung weight has been further improved comfort and grip, and reduced rotating mass on the front axle allows a more direct steering response.

The lightweight construction has also been a key element when it comes to wheels, AMG alloy wheels, based on the principle of the novel of formation flow to reduce unsprung weight while enhancing driving dynamics and comfort underway. In addition to the standard 5-spoke wheels AMG alloy, there is a seven-spoke wheel, which is available as no cost option. Weight-reduced 10-spoke forged wheels are optional. 265/35 R 19 (front) and 295/30 R 20 (rear) tires developed exclusively for SLS offer optimal performance. A control system for tire pressure is fitted to continuously monitor tire pressure on all four wheels, with individual screens for each tire.

Production in Sindelfingen, market launch in autumn 2011

The convertible supercar will be produced on the largest Mercedes-Benz plant in Sindelfingen. 6.3-liter AMG V8 engine comes straight from the AMG engine shop in Affalterbach, where it is assembled by hand using the traditional "One man, one engine" philosophy.

In 2012 SLS AMG Roadster will make its U.S. debut in fall 2011.
