Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster test mule spotted at the Nürburgring.

Our spies have spotted the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Cabriolet sneaking a quick lap on the Nurburgring in Germany.

The spy shots do not reveal the Cabriolet hood fitments as they are still hidden under camouflage, but the active air brake is visible providing more traction under braking.

The power plant will be provided by a 6.3-liter V8 with 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque as seen on the Mercedes SLS Gullwing. This should allow the Cabriolet to accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.0 seconds before topping out at approximately 192 mph.

There is also speculation that there could be a Targa top due to the zips on top of the camouflage, but only time will tell if these rumors are true.

Chrysler was getting previous generation stuff (which wasn’t really reliable) from Mercedes and still lives with the legacy. What Mercedes got back is an ugly Viper-to-be which would be ignored if it wasn’t for that three-point thingy on the bonnet.

Yeah definitely without the roof! Aero dynamic capabilities are needs to be adjust and the weight is lessen because of the door and roof. There are a lot of adjustments needs to be done with it the SLS AMG before setting it to market. Perfection is the game here.

To be honest with you the gullwing relied on a lot of structural strength and weight at the top end of the car. Now this is gone there is a need for suspension and traction which need adjusting and also the airbrake will need resetting back up

Why should they tested it? This baby has the same performance level of the SLS AMG coupe the only difference is it’s roof is taken away.
