• Mercedes SLS AMG will come with a special-edition Alubeam Silver finish

A Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG that’s finished in Alubeam silver is available in America. Buying one, though, requires a measure of patience. Lots of it.

According to Autoblog, Mercedes is indeed coming out with the popular color finish that first made its appearance on the 40th anniversary of the CL65 AMG a couple of years ago. The exclusivity of the Alubeam silver colorway comes from the fact that, unlike any other color finish, this particular one is hand-painted at Mercedes’ Sindelfingen factory, making production a labor-intensive endeavor. As such, Mercedes only produces about 2-3 models of the special edition color finish per week.

Despite the wait, we’re confident that fans of the Alubeam silver finish are more than a little excited about the prospect of seeing it come with an SLS AMG. Just when we thought this car couldn’t get any hotter, here comes another wrinkle to Mercedes’ new supercar that will make it all the more attractive.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

SLS Black Series should have the same engine but supercharged for sound and torque, around 650hp would do some serious damage not to mention the walloping torque! Of course extensive use of carbon fiber like in SLR would help to lose weight!

Well, I guess this Mercedes SLS AMG will look even more shinny, that can cause the other side of accident I guess.
