Wowzers. New Benz SLS (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Pics aplenty on autoblog
Carpoint has leaked images of the new SLS Benz which we have been seeing endless spyshots of over the past year or so. Of course, little by little you get to understand what a car is going to look like by inspecting the heavily camoflauged tester cars, but you can never really appreciate the car fully until the press shots are released.

Well here they are. And this thing is serious. A price tag of $257,000 USD (177,310), 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, with 563 horsepower and 480lb-foot of torque…not to mention gullwing doors. Real, newly designed gullwing doors. And thats just the start. Mercedes is offering a $10,000 paint option..its called “ALU-BEAM liquid metal”. Its also offering a $6,400 Bang & Olufsen stereo system upgrade. If you dont know what that is, then why are you reading this? Go read about the new camaro…or the new prius…or whatever…just go.
porsche 928 anyone? anyone?
This car oozes class. The front end is the perfect marriage of 1954 300SL and 2009 SLR. The back end is unlike anything else mercedes has ever done. Its utterly unique, and definitely needs to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated (I’m saying this not because I’ve seen the car, rather because I can’t decide whether I like it or not…I’m leaning towards not..).
The SLS is out early 2011, so start feedin yer piggies now…
