Mercedes AMG SLS - official specs revealed
Source:Car News and reviews, videos, wallpapers, pictures, free games and more. - Top Speed
When it rains it pours. Earlier this week we got a rumor that the new Gullwing supercar from Mercedes may be called the SLS, and now we’ve got some pretty important details.Autobild posted an official technical drawing on the future supercar.
According to the picture the debate between a V10 and a V8 has been settled. It’s a V8 engine with dry sump lubrication that will be mounted in mid-front position (behind the front wheels, but in front of the driver.) We still expect the final output to be between 550 and 650 hp, which is impressive considering the picture does not indicate a turbocharger.
The picture indicates the “SLS” will use a double clutch transmission (paddle shifted likely.) With the engine in the front and the transmission in the rear, and both are mounted low and towards the middle, the car should be able to achieve the "ideal weight distribution for perfect driving dynamics " that is mentioned at the top of this pic.
