Definitely, the news came as a surprise as it was clear that the feat of the luxury pure sport car wasn’t savored enough. For the record, Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series holds the current record of fastest production car around Nürburgring race track Germany in 6:43.61, although, the tuned Porsche Gt2 RS by Monthy-Racing is not included.

Mercedes-AMG GT roadster has been replaced with Mercedes AMG SL which would have two variants, SL55 and SL63 still with AMG GT 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Mercedes-AMG SL with a 2+2 seat configuration different from Mercedes-AMG GT, an all wheel drive without the hard top roof but a triple layer canvas roof that is lowered in 15 seconds at 37 mph.

Mercedes-AMG hinted that the replacement the Mercedes-AMG GT coupé would be ready to join the new Mercedes-AMG SL probably to house AMG most powerful engine, the 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

Mercedes SL55 would go from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds blistering 456 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and SL63 would go from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds blistering 577hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. As stated by Gorden Wagener, customers complained about the pure sport car nature of AMG GT so the AMG SL evolves which focuses on comfort and luxury with AMG active ride control air suspension with hydraulic anti-roll stabilization.

With the click of a button, Mercedes-AMG SL would switch from a cruiser to a race car. According to Gorden Wagener, ” this is a digital roadster, with not only the latest and greatest in user interaction systems with next level MBUX, but also with all the electronic features, driving assistance system which the GT doesn’t have because it is a pure driving car. The current GT is a pure driving car, and basically the new SL is a completely different kind. With all of the tech that is in there, it would make a huge difference between day and night.”
