The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a grand tourer produced by Mercedes-Benz's AMG division that entered production in 2010.

It is the successor to the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and was directly inspired by the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL.

The powerplant of the SLS AMG is an M159 6.2L V8 engine which is based on the M156 engine. It is the first car that was developed independently by AMG and the chassis and body were the first aluminium construction ever made by Mercedes-Benz.

The car received several variants throughout its lifespan, including a more hardcore Black Series and an all-electric, all-wheel-drive Electric Drive. Production of the SLS ended in 2014 after 350 units of the GT Final Edition variant rolled off the production line. The SLS AMG was succeeded by the Mercedes-AMG GT.
