An anonymous tipster has sent us the alleged US dealer ordering guide for the upcoming Mercedes SLS AMG Gullwing.
The extensive brochure gives us our first glimpse of the SLS' long list of standard equipment which includes Parktronic, Keyless-go, auto dimming and power folding mirrors, a headlight washing system, dual zone automatic climate control, a rear view camera, bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime driving lights, a 40GB COMAND system with GPS navigation and enhanced voice control, Sirius satellite radio, HD radio and iPod/MP3 connectivity.
According to the guide, the 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine produces 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque in US spec. This of course is backed up by a 7-speed AMG dual-clutch transmission, a limited slip rear differential, and compound brake rotors. Should that fail to impress you, Mercedes also offers a stiffer AMG sports suspension ($1,500) and a $12,000 carbon ceramic braking system.
The car will be offered in nine different colors with Obsidian Black, Iridium Silver, Caspian Blue and Zircon Red coming standard. Himalayas Medium Grey and Diamond White will set you back $1,500 while Alanite Grey and Sylvanite Grey will cost $3,000. For maximum exclusivity, Mercedes will also offer a $10,000 Alu-Beam "liquid metal" paint job. Owners can further customize their SLS by ordering $5,000 carbon fiber mirror covers and $2,400 10-spoke AMG forged wheels.
Although the car comes nicely equipped with Alcantara, leather, and aluminum trim, Mercedes offers a variety of upgrades including carbon fiber accents on the center console and doors ($4,500) and a full carbon fiber package ($9,000) that consists of the aforementioned accents as well as carbon fiber sill plates and seat frames. Other interior options include special leather seats, a $500 leather and Alcantara steering wheel, a $6,400 Bang & Olufsen audio system with ten speakers, and a luggage set.
