7636DreamCarXchange is pleased to auction this 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. This completely stock SLS is finished in Obsidian Black over Black/Anthracite leather. This example was originally sold by Euro Motorcars, Inc. of Bethesda, MD in May 2011 where it was registered in New Jersey. The selling dealer recently purchased the car from a local client. It has clean CARFAX and has a clear New Jersey title.
The SLS was the first Mercedes-Benz automobile designed and built from scratch entirely by AMG and features gullwing doors as a modern revival of the iconic 300SL of the 1950’s.
This particular SLS features Black/Anthracite MB Exclusive Leather (Code: 501A) that also features deviated stitching.
This example currently has 18,610 miles and the selling dealer states that it is especially clean.
Code-named M159, the handcrafted engine is basically a re-engineered version of the M156 unit that’s fitted to AMG’s “63” models. The M159 comes with an all-new magnesium intake, forged pistons in place of cast ones, and optimized tubular exhaust headers. M-B also switched from a wet sump to a dry arrangement, allowing the engine to be mounted lower to benefit the SLS’s center of gravity. The maximum output of 563 horsepower is delivered at 6800 rpm, and peak torque of 479 pound-feet comes at 4750 rpm from the factory.
The SLS is the first Mercedes to use a new dual-clutch seven-speed transmission that was developed in conjunction with Getrag. It also features four driving modes to select via the “Drive-Unit” button on the center console, and these range from comfortable to extremely sporty. “C” stands for “controlled efficiency,” in which the car sets off in second gear. “S” (sport) shifts 20 percent faster, while “S+” (sport plus) is again 20 percent quicker. “M” (manual) is 50 percent faster than “C.” A launch-control system is also in place.
It is equipped from the factory with 15.4-inch discs up front behind seven spoke 19-inch wheels and 14.2-inch discs in the rear, with 20-inch wheels.
Service has been done by Mercedes-Benz dealerships and specialist shops throughout it’s life. Below is a summary of its key service history from the CARFAX:

We're proud to present our stunning 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG finished in Obsidian Black over Black/Anthracite Leather. We purchased this SLS from a local client who had pampered the car during their ownership and kept up with all recommended maintenance and services. This example is simply a blast to drive - with it's razor sharp steering, doors that go up, a fire breathing 6.2 liter naturally aspirated hand-built AMG M159 engine and that unmistakable AMG exhaust note, this "Modern Gullwing" is one head turning supercar! We don't say that lightly either! The SLS is easily a supercar in our books for a myriad of reasons - my personal favorite being that the entire engine is situated behind the front wheels! This, along with the razor sharp steering, results in an extremely capable and stellar handling driving experience. Further evidence comes from the rear-mounted 7-speed dual-clutch transaxle, which is connected to the motor via a 5 and a half feet carbon fiber driveshaft weighing in at a modest 8 lbs. This clean Carfax example features rear-view camera, automatic dimming interior and exterior mirrors, electric folding mirrors, Black/Anthracite MB Exclusive Leather (Code: 501A), AMG spoke wheels, AMG aluminum trim pieces, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers, comfort & sport drive modes, and more! Unlike with the original Gullwing, where one had to slide over a wide sill because of the space-frame structure underneath, its very easy to access the SLSs cabin. Ingress & egress are no problem for drivers of any size. Press the starter button illuminated in red on the center console, and the now-familiar, AMG-designed 6.2-liter V-8 awakens with an angry roar. The idle is deep, and the revs rise and fall race-car swiftly.
