The SLS AMG Final edition marks the end of a four-year run for Merc’s super sports car, which has been sold in GT, Roadster, Black Series and Electric versions.

It’s the first complete vehicle to be built by Mercedes-AMG and one of the last models left to be powered by AMG’s hand-built 6.3-litre V8.

The SLS AMG Final edition will be available in both Roadster and GT form powered by the same 583bhp AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine used in the standard model, but in a body shell imbued with the weight-saving properties of carbon fibre.

According to Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers, the SLS Final Edition represents the “ultimate, particularly attractive variant of our super sports car.”

It will debut simultaneously at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the Tokyo Motor Show on 20th November, sharing the AMG limelight with the new S65 AMG saloon.

There’s a new lightweight bonnet, carbon front splitter and fixed carbon rear wing. AMG alloy wheels are available with a choice of silver or matt black finish.

Inside there are diamond-shape quilted AMG seats, silver contrasting top-stitching and carbon trim to deliver a luxurious yet sporty ambience.

The production run will be limited to just 350 units, representing the last opportunity for customers to order a SLS AMG. It’s successor, codenamed C190 is scheduled to appear in 2015, ready to take on the Porsche 911 Turbo.
