Now that we have seen the updated version of the amazing Mercedes SLS AMG , people are switching their focus to new versions of the car. We’ve already heard about the E-Cell version, but the model that is making heads spin is the Diesel SLS AMG.
Wait, what?! A diesel-powered SLS AMG? Well, not really. Polish website, Moto.pl, says Mercedes will be unveiling a diesel powered version of the SLS AMG in the future. This new version will be called the AMG SLS CDI and will be powered by a six-cylinder diesel engine with triple turbochargers. It is said to deliver about 400 HP. Jalopnik, on the other hand, says a diesel-powered SLS AMG will never happen. Both websites neglect to mention any viable sources, so both pieces of information need to be taken with a grain of salt.
Okay, so what’s really going on here? Europe is in high demand for diesel-powered sports car and, back in 2008, it was rumored that AMG was working on a diesel powered high-performance model. That being said, earlier this year, Mercedes AMG announced that a diesel powered vehicle wouldn’t fit in their line-up and they have no intention in following their German automaker rivals. The question is: should we trust them? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
