Alright, I am going to say it – “Who the hell do I need to kill to get this thing in my garage?” Better yet, who can I convince to allow me to test drive this car for 4 years?
Here’s a little excerpt about the engine from Car and Driver:
Powering the SLS is a revised version of AMG’s now-familiar 6.2-liter 32-valve V-8. In the SLS, the engine makes 563 hp at 6800 rpm and 479 lb-ft of torque at 4750 rpm. Revisions to the engine for use in the SLS include a new magnesium intake with eight separate velocity stacks; two electronically controlled throttle plates feed the new intake. On the exhaust side, a new equal-length exhaust manifold reduces backpressure. Lubricating the engine is a new dry-sump system that allows the engine to sit low, thus reducing the center of gravity.
I can’t help it – all I can think about is cruising up and down Sunset in this bad boy. People will admire me and want to be me. Really.
