Mercedes-Benz is saying goodbye to its SLS supercar with the AMG GT Final Edition. The last hurrah for the SLS will only see 350 vehicles made, with each one featuring the same V8 6.3-liter engine that’s in the regular SLS AMG GT model, pushing out 591 ponies. It’s seen a lot of upgrades and special editions since it first hit the car scene in 2009, with this model distinguished by its carbon fiber hood and front splitter, as well as a redesigned front bumper and new brakes. It also has an updated rear wing and carbon side mirror housings, as well as darkened light surroundings.
It’ll see its public debut next week at the Los Angeles and Tokyo motor shows at the same time where it will be featured alongside with S65 AMG. It’s replacement has already been announced and is said to come out next year, wearing the SLC badge. Mercedes-Benz has codenamed it C190 and it’s supposed to be smaller than the SLS and will receive a newly developed V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo that will push out 493 hp.
