Luxury auto manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz, has added a new variant to its SLS AMG supercar line called the SLS AMG GT. The new GT is slotted above the “base” SLS, but placed under the Black Series version of the supercar. Current SLS owners, keep calm as the SLS GT only gets a 20 horsepower increase over the “base” model for a total of 583 horses, while torque remains the same. In fact, the supercar is largely unchanged, with the exception of the re-tuned adaptive suspension and new “Sport” & “Sport+” exclusive drive selection settings that have been added. Overall, the new SLS GT biggest improvement is its more composed driving capability, giving its driver more confidence when going into and out of corners.
