Used Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster Is Perfect For Posh Hoonigans

Even though the SLS AMG Roadster doesn’t have the Coupe’s awesome gullwing doors, it still makes for a very exclusive supercar, one that just happens to have a three-layered fabric soft top, bringing you even closer to its magnificent 6.2-liter V8.

If you were to bid on this 2012 example, then you probably love the LeMans Red exterior, two-tone black and tan interior, and the fact that the engine has been driven for just 10,700 miles (17,220 km).

Features include a 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system, 19-inch wheels up front and 20-inch ones out back, red brake calipers, leather/Alcantara steering wheel, carbon fiber interior trim as well as aluminum inserts.

The beating heart of the SLS AMG, be it the Roadster or the Coupe, is its naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, which produces 571 PS (563 HP) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to its 7-speed AMG Speedshift DCT gearbox, the SLS Roadster can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and max out at 317 km/h (197 mph).

According to the Bring a Trailer ad, the car is being offered with a clean Carfax, “some” service records and a clean Texas title. An oil change was also performed in February.

When it was new, its MSRP in the U.S. was just over $221,000, so based on the current market for used low-mileage SLS Roadsters, we think this car could fetch anywhere between $120,000 and $170,000.

    I think this will age better than the current AMG GT. Naturally aspirated V8 is just the bonus…

  • I actually like this. The coupe’s “gullwing” doors are just too much.

    Man, those radio and hvac controls… what were they thinking.

  • Galaxium

    I’ve always loved the SLS design, except its rear. It looks really bloated proportion-wise and it reminds me a lot of the Model S for some reason…

  • enthusia

    this car is beyond UGLY. i never liked when i first saw it and i still don’t like it now. after time has past i’ll see it again and i always hope that it will grow on me, but instead it’s aging like a banana in direct sunlight.

    the SLS, the facelifted R230 & current SL, and the AMG GT are the most hideous things to ever spawn from Mercedes.

    Still a really good looking car….with top notch performance numbers.
