300 SL Gullwing Origins

Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and auto fans will immediately recognize the SLS AMG’s inspiration. The design calls back to perhaps the most famous Mercedes-Benz of all time, the 300 SL. This race car’s success on the tack during the 1950’s helped launch Mercedes. Thanks to its achievements, Mercedes-Benz earned a reputation as one of Europe’s premier luxury automakers.

Introduced in 1952, the Mercedes-Benz W194 earned victories at many of the world’s most prestigious races. The most dominant race car of its time, Mercedes-Benz released a road version, the 300 SL a couple years later. To this day, the 300 SL remains one of the most admired cars of all time. With its innovation and iconic gull-wing doors, it is one of the 1900’s most recognizable sports cars.

Mercedes-Benz AMG Branch

Before discussing the SLS, it is first important to understand its origins. In addition to the inspiration from the 300 SL, Mercedes-AMG played a large role in the car’s development. The performance subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz, AMG is behind the automaker’s most powerful engines. It tests and develops innovative technology that gives Mercedes cars the best possible performance.

Starting out as a purely racing-focused department, AMG traces its origins back to 1967. However, AMG started to branch out in the mid-2000s. At this time, they decided to go beyond turning existing Mercedes-Benz cars into performance models. Instead, they began creating their own supercars, and it started with the SLS AMG.

The SLS AMG: Design Inspired from History

In all ways, the SLS AMG is the perfect mix of old and new. The timeless design of this two-seater is a clear callback to the most iconic car in Mercedes-Benz history. Still, the performance has all the marks of AMG’s groundbreaking engineering. As a result, the SLS AMG satisfies Mercedes-Benz fans of all generations and has carved out its own brilliant legacy.

Designers knew that for the SLS AMG to fit with Mercedes history, the engine had to be placed in the front. This contrasted with the more popular mid-engine supercars of the time. However, after initial sketching and modeling, the pure and striking silhouette of the car began to take shape. Mercedes approved the design and work on the SLS AMG continued to the engineering phase.

The 6.3L AMG Engine

As always, AMG excelled when developing the engine for their new supercar. In 2008, the testing program was in full swing with a small fleet of prototypes. Mercedes-Benz tested vehicles around the world to check their performance, aerodynamics, and durability. During this time, AMG also got to work fine-tuning a brand-new engine for the car.

Underneath the long hood of the SLS AMG sits a wonderfully powerful M159 V8 engine. For the first time, AMG designed the engine completely independently. No parts were copied or repurposed from an existing engine. Instead, AMG got to implement its own unique engineering. This naturally aspirated engine creates a distinctive sound driver will love. Furthermore, it delivers the muscle needed to make the SLS SMG a true performance sports car.

Innovative Driving Technology

Throughout the SLS AMG, groundbreaking technology helped the car reach its full potential. At the time of its release, the engine ranked as the most powerful production V8 on the market. The SLS AMG also featured some notable unique features that made it stand out. Unlike most Mercedes models, the gearbox is not connected directly to the engine. Instead, it is on the rear axle which creates better weight distribution and allows for better stability.

Famous Mercedes-Benz Driving Capabilities

The M159 engine that features so prominently in the SLS AMG received some major upgrades before production. First, dry sump lubrication ensured a lower center of gravity and improved cornering. Secondly, separated air filters made intake more efficient. In addition, new forged pistons, a weight-optimized crankcase, and new crankshafts made for a dynamic drive.

Overall, the SLS AMG handles much better than most front-engine cars. The traction and control drivers can enjoy makes is one of the most pleasurable sports cars to own. For Sunday drives along winding back roads, few other sports cars can compete. Drivers can enjoy the classic feel of the car along with its highly modern capabilities.
