The stunning SLS AMG is a true icon of automotive design. Making its eagerly-anticipated Asia premiere at Auto China tomorrow, it is set to be one of the show's most captivating models, bringing with it a new level of automotive fascination.

Boasting a purist design, lightweight construction, outstanding handling and exemplary safety, the SLS AMG "Gullwing" model reinterprets the design of the historic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL - which first set pulses racing over 40 years ago. With its wide radiator grille and wing-shaped cross fins, the SLS AMG channels its spirit with charisma.

Beyond its eye-catching appeal, this new super sports car also offers pure driving excitement. Its AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine produces a maximum of 420 kW output and 650 Nm of torque, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in a staggering 3.8 seconds, before achieving a top speed of 317 km/h.

Moreover, the outstanding features of SLS AMG have led to its appointment as the Official Safety Car of Formula One this year, thanks to its precise turn-in ability, agility, and exemplary safety measures - all of which left audiences buzzing when it made its first appearance in China last weekend during the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix in Shanghai.

AMG represents more than 40 years of powerful dynamism in its professional auto-racing heritage. With each model adhering to the philosophy of "One Man, One Engine", it ensures every vehicle radiates with individualized premium performance passion. The SLS AMG is yet another striking model that further represents AMG's leading product portfolio in China's high-performance segment.
