2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster Unveiled

Those that have been waiting for a roadster variant of Mercedes' SLS AMG supercar can start heading over to their nearest Benz dealership to drop off a deposit. The 2012 SLS AMG Roadster is now official and will make its North American debut in Fall of 2011. The AMG-powered 6.2-liter V8 powerplant puts out 563-hp and 479 ft-lbs of torque while drivers will now have the versatility to conveniently lower the fully automatic, weight-optimized soft top to further enjoy the tone the V8 emits.

The roadster will have the ability to open its soft top so long as you're traveling under 31-mph, and does so in a mere 11 seconds. The roof control unit is nicely integrated at the front of the center armrest making it within easy reach. To complement the SLS AMG's nine exterior and eight interior colors, the soft top will be available in three different colors: black, red and beige.

For the rest of the SLS AMG, it's standard Mercedes-Benz operating procedure which includes a staggered set of 19- and 20-inch wheels, AMG Drive Unit (which also allows controlling of the optional adaptive AMG sport suspension), Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG sound system, and optional AMG ceramic high-performance two-piece braking system.

No pricing was announced on the SLS Roadster, but with the coupe retailing for $183,000 it's likely to approach or even exceed the $200,000 mark.
