Lot #1431 - Limited production 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing with only 1,510 actual miles. Featuring a 6.3 Liter V8 with 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, this car is a beast to drive. If you want it to be. Put it in the AMG mode and you will think you will think you are in a rocket ship. Finished in bright red with beautiful matching red and black leather interior, this car is a real stunner. The 2014 SLS GT was the first Mercedes-Benz automobile designed and built from scratch entirely by AMG. Upon its introduction, the SLS AMG's 563hp engine was according to AMG "the world's most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine" ever produced. The SLS was built from 2010 to 2014 and this one up for auction is the last year this model was produced except the 2015 Black Series. The car, which has gull-wing doors, was the successor to the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and was described by Mercedes-Benz as a spiritual successor to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. SLS stands for "Sport Leicht Super" (Sport Light Super). The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was assembled largely by hand, with its chassis and aluminum body shell produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria and then transferred to Sindelfingen, Germany for assembly, with its engine being hand built by AMG in Affalterbach, Germany.
