And so it begins.

The Mercedes SLS AMG Gullwing has finally gone into series production at Mercedes’ largest production facility in Sindelfengen, Germany.

The SLS AMG is set to come with a number of notable parts including a chassis and aluminum body-shell that’s being produced by Magna Steyr Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH in Austria. Likewise, the Mercedes’ AMG division will be the ones tasked to build the Gullwing’s monstrous 571hp 6.3-liter V8 engine at their facility in Affalterbach.

As soon as all the all the parts have been completed, the next step involving the production of the supercar will head off to Mercedes’ aforementioned Sindelfingen production plant where the SLS AMG will be assembled before it finally rolls out of production.

After debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show last September, the SLS AMG has received praise and acclaim from all corners of the world for both its unique design and top-notch performance.

The car’s expected sales debut will begin on March 27, 2010 where it will be sold for €177,310 ($249,000) in Germany.

The SLS is beautiful, as is the race car. But I imagine this can’t be the easiest car to compete with when there’s all that aluminum covering the lower half of your vision.

@grandprix - for sure you can afford one, maybe it takes only a year for you to earn that money... you just have to bring your own food in office, less social life or night life.

Perhaps the extra long nose can help the Mercedes survive a crash. Lol. But seriously, it would not hurt if they trimmed it a bit. But nonetheless, its one of the most powerful coupe once it officially goes out in the market. I hope I can afford to buy one.

But I still can’t get over the extra long nose of this beauty. I thought that they would trim it a bit once they start production. But it seems that they didn’t change it.

Not only is it safe but it also ensured a great driving experience through their engineering technology that they installed in it. i definitely look forward in driving this beauty.

Wow! It is so exciting to see Mercedes SLS-AMG to be finally in production. Next to any Volvo cars, I bet that this is one of the safest car there is. It has been subjected to a high number of crash tests in the course of its development.
