As amazing as this may sound, the AMG Gran Vision Turismo will make it to production! Unfortunately, Mercedes will be the developer, but a custom builder whom will use the brand new 2014 SLS AMG GT as the base car. The production version will be limited to only five units and one is already sold. Of these five units, two will be available in the Middle East, two in Europe and one in the U.S. As you can imagine, price will be monumental — $1.5 million, to be exact.
The production version of the Vision Concept will feature a carbon-fiber body kit that will the SLS AMG GT’s total weight by about 200 pounds. It will feature a chrome paint job and will come with a retractable rear spoiler and custom exhaust. The car will also ride on custom ADV.1 wheels and will feature a modified interior, with color designed according to the customer’s request.
We assume that the engine will be the SLS AMG GT’s 6.3-liter V-8, but we have yet to confirm this.
We have reached out to the manufacturer to get some more information on the vehicle, and we will bring you a full review once we receive all of the information.
