The new SLS AMG GT might be the last Gullwing we get...

Created on 2019-02-07 by Megan Russell

“We probably won’t do a Volkswagen Golf5, 6, 7 with the SLS because of the unique gullwing doors and so on and so forth. It’s not something you just do one after the after,” said AMGCEO Ola Kallenius. “I am not suggesting we should wait 55 years to do the next gullwing car, but certainly not straight after the one we have done now. That needs to sit in automotive history as its own chapter.”

Pertaining to when the SLSGullwing will end, he said “We haven’t said yet -- we will say soon. But if you want to buy one strike now.”

While we are sad to see the Gullwinggo, we recognize that the doors are not the focus of this cars real glory... The specs of the 2020 SLS AMG GT Gullwingare as impressive as expected;

"The maximum output of the AMG6.3-liter V8 front mid-engine has been increased to 583 hp at 6800 rpm, while the maximum torque is maintained at 479 lb/ft at 4750 rpm. These changes yield a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.6 (est) seconds with a max speed of 197mph (electronically limted)" - Mercedes-BenzPress Release 2019
