The SLS AMG is the best Mercedes Benz can offer right now. The car arrived in European dealerships as a coupe in mid-2010 and impressed us with a pure engine delivering 571 PS and sporting a set of impressive but impractical gullwing doors. They even improved on the design with the arrival of the SLS Roadster, but the supercar game moved on a bit in terms of performance, and the engine isn’t as mental as it used to seem.
Putting a new spin on the SLS AMG
Roadster, German tuning firm Vath has introduced a new supercharger kit and an air box to the 6.2-liter V8 which has boosted it from 571 PS to 700 PS and from 650Nm (479 lb-ft) to 850Nm (627 lb-ft) of peak torque.
This allows the SLS AMG Roadster to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 330km/h (205 mph).
But Vath has also targeted the looks of the SLS AMG Roadster with a front chin apron, a boot spoiler and a set of side skirts. The standard AMG wheels were also replaced with 20-inch alloy rims wrapped in tires sized 265/30-20 on the front and 315/25-20 on the rear.
