TORONTO – Mercedes-Benz Canada was pleased to celebrate the Canadian premiere of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT today at the Vancouver International AutoShow. The “GT” designation denotes a more powerful engine, a recalibrated AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT seven-speed sports transmission and a modified AMG Adaptive Suspension. The flagship supercar will continue to be available as a coupe with dramatic gullwing doors or a convertible model with a retractable cloth top and conventionally hinged doors. The Mercedes-Benz design and performance standard-bearer, the limited-production SLS AMG was the first-ever car designed and developed from the ground up by Mercedes-AMG, the company’s high-performance division. The hand-built AMG engine in the 2013 SLS AMG GT is rated at 583 hp and 479 lb.-ft. of torque, up 20 horsepower over last year’s version. For 2013, the GT model also comes with darkened headlights and taillights, red brake calipers, a unique 10-spoke wheel with matte black inlay and a high-gloss black finish on the front grille and outside mirrors as well as the fins on the hood and fenders.
