Tuesday’s Obscure Car of the Day **LEAKED PICTURES EDITION**

08 Sep

Today’s car is not really obscure but an up and coming 2010 model that has been in development for a while and has yet to be fully presented. I have received both my MotorTrend and Automobile Magazine for the month of September a few weeks ago and this particular car was plastered there with enough cammo to disguise a fat girl or a medium size wale. Get your first eye-full in the gallery below before all the official details are delivered next week.

The car is due to be revealed at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. It features a 300SL-inspired “Gullwing” packing a front/mid-mounted version of Benz’s 6.3-liter V8 fitted to the majority of AMG’s offerings, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox channeling 563 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. Weight is pegged at around 3,500 pounds, allowing the SLS to run from a rest to 60 in 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 197 mph and optional carbon ceramic discs should bring the party to a halt with supreme authority.

Color choices will include Alubeam Silver, Syvanite Grey, Alanite Grey and red, complimenting the leather and alcantara interior and ten-spoke forged wheels. Production will begin in late 2010 with sales starting the following year, and early pricing suggests a €177,310 MSRP in Germany ($256,904 in the US).
