Mercedes SLS AMG vs. Ferrari F430
Mercedes went out to test the upcoming SLS AMG only to have the encounter of a lifetime. So who or what did they run in to? One of the future AMG built super car’s competitors in the marketplace, the Ferrari F430. On a more important note, the car is loosing more and more of its camouflage, meaning that we will soon see an official unveiling.
The SLS AMG will be powered by a hand built 6.2 liter AMG V8 engine that puts out a total of 571 HP, which is over 50 HP more than the AMG CL63 that shares the same engine design. The SLS will weigh in at just under 3575 pounds means that every horsepower being developed by the V8 has to push around about 6.25 pounds of gull wing, this allows the super car to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in only 3.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 195 MPH.
