We’re trying to figure the rationale of Mercedes and what compelled them to transfer one of the all-new 2010 SLS AMG Gullwing to the roof terrace of its company museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

It seems that Mercedes was going for a touch of symbolism, with the wings…err…doors of the Gullwing completely open, thereby making it look like the car was really flying off into the sunset. Of course, that wasn’t exactly what happened. While we’re not opposed to the idea of the SLS AMG can actually fly, this particular one was transported 42 meters up to the Mercedes Museum’s roof terrace on-board a 120-ton hydraulic crane.

According to Michael Bock, the Managing Director of the Mercedes Benz Museum GmBH, the car will be placed on display at the museum from October 6 to October 16 so that visitors can have an in-the-flesh look at Mercedes’ new supercar.

"This will be a very emotional experience for our visitors”, said Block. “This super sports car stands for excitement, passion and high-tech. As museum for the past present and future of the automobile we provide an ideal setting for the exclusive presentation of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG."

Stuttgart is a long way from where we are so we’re probably not going to be able to catch the SLS AMG at the Mercedes Museum, but if you happen to be in the area, make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity, because quite frankly, a lot of you won’t get another chance to be this close to an SLS AMG in your lives.
