Mercedes SLS AMG

The Mercedes SLS AMG is made from an aluminium spaceframe chassis. It has a 6.3 litre V8 engine that will – if you’re in a hurry – get you from 0 to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds.

You’re out of luck if you’re in big, big hurry however, as the vehicle is electronically limited to 317 km/h. Looking for an automatic? Not a chance with this has a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

The engineering and dynamics that go into this beautiful and elegant machine could fill a terabyte hard drive, but suffice to say that the low centre of gravity, and the impossibly cool gull wing doors, place this sporty collector’s item at the very top of the car tree.
