New spy photos of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing give us a real-life view of the car's cockpit-inspired interior.
New spy photos of a partially-concealed Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing have surfaced, showing a white version of the car again. The pictures were taken on the Nürburging while the automaker was conducting its own photo and video shoot for Mercedes-Benz TV.
Although we've already seen official photos, one of the photos gives us a glimpse of the car's contrasting interior, made up of red and grey materials. We can see a round, three-point multi-function steering wheel, with two gauges recessed behind the wheel. The airplane-inspired airco vents are also on display.
These photos follow a string of recent SLS leaks, including Autobild's publication of an uncovered, white Gullwing, with other angles of the car being shown by both Autobild and Autowereld a few days earlier.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will use a 571 horsepower, 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine that produces up to 650 Nm of torque. The driver will power the car to its 315 km/h (196 mph) top speed through the automaker's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Inspired by the 1954 Mercedes 300 SL, the new model has a 0-100km/h time of 3.8 seconds - over three seconds quicker than the classic car.
Mercedes will officially introduce the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
