The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupé Final Edition is the coupe version of the end-of-production version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition.
Debuting in 2013, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition is the special end-of-production version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, based on the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT. Only 350 units were built, including gullwing-door coupes and roadsters.
The SLS AMG GT Final Edition's 6.2L V8 produces 583 hp (435 kW) at 6,800 rpm and 479 ft·lb (649 N·m) at 4,750 rpm, transmitted to the rear wheels via a seven-speed AMG Speedshift DCT.
The front end of the SLS AMG GT Final Edition uses a front splitter and a rear wing reminiscent of the SLS AMG Black Series, and a carbon fiber front hood. In the car's interior is a diamond-pattern leather interior with silver stitching and carbon fiber trim. Written is a plaque reading "1 of 350", although with no information about the car's actual place in the production run.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupé Final Edition does not have any particular performance aspect at which it can excel at, instead having its performance based on that of the Aston Martin DB9 Coupé but with a far better nitro stat.
The SLS AMG Final Edition has a rather slow rate of acceleration, meaning it takes longer to reach 249 mph (400 km/h) than most Class A cars. Its top speed stat is also not overly impressive, either, especially when compared to the other Class A cars with MAX+PRO ranks below 1600. The only paramount the SLS AMG Final Edition has is its nitro efficiency, at 6/11/16 instead of the normal 6/12/16. The SLS AMG Final Edition has a maximum total speed of 260.9 mph (420.1 km/h).
The SLS AMG Final Edition has the biggest problem of being one of the worst-handling cars in the game, meaning that even the most-skilled drivers using this car have a problem of having to take corners earlier than normal. The SLS AMG Final Edition is also infamous for being one of the widest-drifting cars in the game, even worse than the Car Mastery Update version of the McLaren P1™ GTR and similar to newer cars like the Sbarro Alcador, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, and Devel Sixteen Prototype.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupé Final Edition is generally considered a collector's item, as in Events, there is no way the SLS AMG Final Edition can compete, even if the event's car roster suggests otherwise. In Multiplayer, the SLS AMG Final Edition is also not recommended due to having many performance weaknesses, especially drifting.
While qualifying for use in any Mercedes-only event, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series and other faster cars are far better choices than the SLS AMG Final Edition.
The only use the SLS AMG Final Edition has is counting towards the GT Club and Mercedes collections. Additionally, the SLS AMG Final Edition was also one of the Enduro Cars in the Enduro Double Down event for the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid (details on this page).
As mentioned before, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupé Final Edition was originally a Premium Car that could only be purchased with the Jaguar C-X75 in the Asphalt Premium Pack for a price of US$29.99, later reduced to US$19.99. The Decals Update updated the SLS AMG's price to 2,100, making it the cheapest Class A car that can be bought only with tokens. On March 24, 2018, the SLS AMG's price was reduced to 110,000
