The latest creation to come out of Mercedes’ AMG skunkworks, the SLS is a masterpiece of modern automotive engineering. It’s fast. It’s sleek. It pays due homage to the 300SL Gullwing – its predecessor and inspiration – and builds on that foundation to end up with one piece of badass engineering.
AMG’s now-legendary 6.3L V8 powers the SLS with an astounding – and naturally-aspirated – 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. You won’t forget what kind of car you’re renting – we promise.
The SLS combines race-bred performance with the comfort and handling expected in any vehicle that bears the Mercedes-Benz name. The SLS is a monster when you want it to be and a quiet grand-tourer when you don’t. Traffic snarls won’t exhaust you or your foot as the 7-speed automatic gracefully keeps the car in check. And when it’s time to rock, boy is it time to rock.
And, of course, it’s got real, honest-to-goodness gullwing doors: A show-stopper.
