Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible: First spy shot with roof down!

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible

Here’s the first spy shot of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible with its roof down. A must see!

Instead of using a heavy and complex folding metal arrangement, as seen on the SL, Mercedes has elected to fit a revised version of the canvas top which used on the previous SLR roadster.

The electrically-operated roof is made from a lightweight aluminium roof frame clad in canvas, which buyers can elect to have in a colour matching the exterior paint finish, or in a contrasting hue as seen on this development car. By keeping the weight of the top down, this still allows the SLS roadster to have a top speed north of 200mph.
