In 2005, the brains behind Daimler’s exclusive division came up with the visionary aim to develop a super sports car on par with a Porsche 911 or an Audi R8. The SLS AMG was intended as the successor to an automotive legend – the Mercedes 300 SL. 

The legend was reborn. The SLS AMG is here – and with it, a book featuring the entire, exhilarating SLS AMG line-up. One particularly extreme example is the SLS AMG GT3 on the legendary Circuit Paul Ricard, photographed from a breathtaking bird’s eye view. On the trail of the secretive SLS AMG E-CELL project, photographer Markus Bolsinger and his team went along on the first night-time test run.
Knowledgeable and well-informed text passages have been compiled by some of Germany’s finest motoring journalists, including Wolfgang Peters and Jürgen Zöllter.
