Will rather just sell of the SLS for something else instead of replacing it with GT.
Gonna save this for later because I'm guessing in about 6 months, after you've seen one, you're gonna be kicking yourself.

Surprised you have to sell the SLS to get the GT though. Baller status revoked!

^ Garage space.. Can only have 5 cars at a time at our Joburg house.

Currently have SLS, M4, X5 and wife has M235i and 911S Cab.

So one must always make space dor the other.

I desperately want 458 Speciale though. SLS might have to make space for that during the coming year.

Ehh if u want a Speciale u better act now... The prices will go stupid in about a year. I can assure you of that. Possibly last N/A V8 Ferrari (at least in foreseeable future)

And then i'm flying to SA to rave it

I love the look of this but i'd never get rid of a SLS for one......I still plan on finding a SLS in the near future to live with my 458.

This will likely cannibalize SL sales... What's the point of an SL63 AMG, when you can get this?





Quote:
A Mercedes AMG GT Roadster is a possibility, as Mercedes-AMG chairman Tobias Moers hinted in a report late last year.

We’ve already seen a rendering of an AMG GT Roadster with a soft top from Remco Meulendijk, and now another Photoshop master, Theophilus Chin, has virtually taken the roof off the AMG GT.

But this time, AMG’s sports car has been imagined with a retractable hard top, similar to the one used by Mercedes’ flagship convertible model, the SL. I don’t know how logical it would be for Mercedes to offer a metal roof, given that the SL has one too and it would put the AMG GT too close to its territory.

Besides, a much lighter soft top would fit the AMG GT better, since we’re talking about a quintessential sports car and not a luxury cruiser. But regardless of the roof type, it would be such a shame for Mercedes not to build a drop top AMG GT, since these renderings prove it would look stunning.

This is what i was saying when one of yous started a thread on this initially..

MB should have just made this "GT" the new SL... GT = SL coupe/vert.. This should be the design of the SL anyway, considering it appropriately takes from the original proposition of the '50s/'60s..

MB seem to enjoy building rival cars within their own fleet, and capitalizing on brand-recognition/loyalty..

Also, this will be the best looking vert on the road, in its class, IMO....esp in with the "v10"
