The Mercedes SLS AMG Convertible has been recently spotted by spy photographers, and as you can notice, the German automaker has opted in for a fabric roof which was preferred instead of a heavier and more complex metal folding top.
This means that the Mercedes SLS AMG convertible looses the Gullwing doors known from the hard top version, and under the bonnet customers will most probably find the 570 HP 6.2-litre V8 that uses the automaker’s dual clutch transmissions. There are however rumors that mention the new 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 as also being a possible motorisation option.
Speculative performance figures point out that the Mercedes SLS AMG convertible should still be able to hit top speeds of over 200 mph, and that the car will debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The Mercedes SLS AMG convertible price will be around 180,000 GBP which means close to 280,000 USD.
