Not long after its successful debut of the Mercedes SLS AMG Gullwing at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Mercedes has already laid out plans of releasing a roadster version of the car that captured the attention of everyone who went to the IAA.

While the ‘supposed’ roadster won’t be due for at least another two years – or so the company says – it looks like Mercedes is further along the testing phase than any of us expected.

The video, which was taken by Auto Motor und Sport, is a clip of what looks like four heavily-covered SLS AMG roadsters taking in a few test runs in Death Valley, California.

Mercedes has announced that the roadster will be outfitted with most of the revolutionary design elements found in the SLS AMG Gullwing.
Judging from what the outline of the car, the trademark hood of the Gullwing remains the same and if you pay attention to the video closely, you’ll notice that these cars also come with the unique gullwing doors from which the SLS AMG got its nickname.

On a totally unrelated note, it seems that the convoy of masked Gullwings has found itself an unlikely road buddy in the form of an Audi R8. If only cars could think, we wonder what the R8 was thinking being caught in the same video as those SLS AMGs.
