Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Production to End in Less Than a Year
With the modern Gullwing being launched just four years ago, at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, it would mean that the supercar would have one of the shortest life spans in recent Mercedes years.
According to the German blog, the “standard” SLS AMG Coupe and Roadster will stop production from January 2014, with the GT version and the Black Series being the only models that will still be manufactured at the Sindelfingen plant until June, when the factory will be retooled for the C190 project.
We're not sure what to say of this, since every other report until now had been saying that the upcoming C190 project, aka the “Baby SLS”, would complement the SLS AMG, not replace it. Speaking of which, that model is said to be developed on a shorter but somewhat similar platform with the SLS, keeping the front-mid engine and transaxle transmission layout. Some even believe that it's going to be used on future Aston Martins as well.
