Okay, let’s face it, this is a first! While we are tired of seeing pink supercars, we have to admit, this is the first time we have seen a matte purple paint job on a car. This matte purple Mercedes SLS AMG was spotted in London, and you can easily understand why the spotter couldn’t resist the temptation to follow it through the city.

The SLS AMG is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine located front-mid that develops a total of 571 HP and up to 650 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, while top speed goes up to 197 mph. In UK the SLS AMG is priced at £157500, of course, we’re wondering how much the exterior color had added to the total price.

there are no changes on the performance of the car, they only focused on the Exterior looks of the car, but it looks better than the Matte blue done on the SLS AMG on Dubai.

agree, but it looks like a running plumb on street.. they should add some decals and vinyls to make it more aggressive.
