Unveiled in a twin premier at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show, the SLS AMG GT Final Edition was commissioned by Mercedes-Benz to celebrate the model’s success. A limited-edition series with only 350 units total, the Final Edition production run consisted of approximately 200 coupes and 150 roadsters.
At the SLS AMG GT’s heart is a 6.3-liter V-8 engine producing 599 horsepower at 6,800 rpm, with a maximum torque output of 479 pound-feet at 4,750 rpm. Acceleration is brisk, with a 0–62 mph sprint time of just 3.7 seconds, racing onwards to 124 mph in 11.2 seconds, and an electronically limited top speed of 198 mph. The car’s performance is managed through Mercedes-Benz’s AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed transmission. The 350 Final Edition cars received exclusive equipment which included a carbon fiber hood with central-air outlet, front splitter, the carbon fiber rear wing seen on the SLS AMG Black Series, and lightweight forged alloy wheels painted matte black.
Considering the entirety of SLS AMG production, many consider the Final Edition cars to be the most desirable to own and enjoy, as they tread the line between the subtlety of the regular-production SLS AMGs and the aggressive, track-focused Black Series cars, while benefitting from the slight boost in power of the late-production GT models.
Offered here is one of the exceedingly rare, US-market Final Edition coupes, and it is clad in Obsidian Black over exclusive anthracite leather. Additional factory specifications are limited to silver brake calipers and high-gloss carbon interior trim.
Having been driven fewer than 2,550 miles at time of cataloguing, this example represents an incredible opportunity to purchase a remarkable SLS some eight years after it left AMG’s facilities. Poised to be a future classic due to its stunning good looks, incredible performance, and very limited production, this would be an astute acquisition for any supercar enthusiast—or the perfect stablemate to a 300 SL Gullwing, the car from which the SLS AMG takes its inspiration.
This vehicle will be offered at RM Sotheby’s 23rd annual Amelia Island sale, held in conjunction with the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, on 5 March 2022. Held at the stunning oceanfront grounds of the Ritz-Carlton, RM Sotheby’s will offer some of the world’s finest cars in this can’t-miss event.
