While the 563-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 engine from the “regular” SLS AMG may be gone (replaced by the four electric motors), the rest is essentially the same. That means two well-bolstered seats in an enveloping cockpit accessed by a pair of Gullwing doors, just like the original 300 SL from which the SLS draws its inspiration.
What's more is that this isn't some concept car or developmental prototype. Mercedes will offer the SLS Electric Drive to anyone who has the half-million to pony up for it. (Pending local regulatory approval, of course.) The German automaker may even be willing to paint yours a different color from the eye-catching blue chrome used for the show car.
