Mercedes-Benz’ new SLS AMG continues to get better with the introduction of a new more-powerful roadster version and now a new SLS AMG GT for the 2013 model year. The new SLS AMG GT is the now moniker for Benz’ halo car and to show off its improvements, it rips the Nurburgring just under 7 minutes 30 seconds.
Powered by a retuned 6.3-liter V8 with 591 horsepower, the new Benz SLS AMG GT accelerates from 0-60mph in under 3.7 seconds.
According to Autoblog, AMG chairman Ola Källenius uncovered the new lap time in recent talks. The new 2013 SLS AMG GT will go on sale in the U.S. November of this year with a price about $5,000 north of the outgoing model year coming in at $195,000 and $200,000 for the coupe and roadster respectfully.
