Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG dealer order guide – Click above to view

While we patiently await our turn to drive Mercedes-Benz's upcoming SLS AMG gullwing wundercar, we have a new way to occupy our time: the dealership ordering guide. Thanks to an anonymous tipster, we have the full document for your perusal, which includes all relevant details and estimated option prices for spec'ing out an SLS of your very own.

The guide doesn't provide us with many new images of the 563-horsepower production coupe, but we do see the options list and associated pricing, including lots of interesting tidbits like the model's available colors (including special $10,000 "ALU-BEAM liquid metal" paint); performance options including $12,000 carbon-ceramic brakes and a modestly priced $1,500 sport suspension kit; along with interior niceties on the order of various seat leathers, an $11k extended carbon fiber kit, a $6,400 Bang & Olufsen stereo upgrade, and so on.

What are you waiting for? Click on the gallery below to see how much money you'll need to liberate from the couch cushions before you can order the SLS of your dreams.

      Someone at Mercedes has been taking classes from Porsche and Ferrari on how to screw and charge your customer for every single little thing.

      Been seriously looking at buying a 911 but I really feel Porsche takes advantage of their customers with the ridiculous charging for every little thing on the car. It gets to a point where I feel they just don't care about the customer anymore and are just trying to empty your pockets.

        Lexus not fun to drive? The IS-F shot that talk right out the sky. Not every car in the line up has to be an performance car. Which is why BMW M is a sell out and everyone and their grand ma has a M3. The M3 is the Civic of performance cars....everyone has or had one.

        Lexus already has luxury down packed. When they get performance down packed they will have best of both worlds.

        Erm, the big three Germans has always been screwing customers on options. See what you get standard with a Lexus and then how much extra you have to pay to get it on a BMW.

        Actually Superhands,

        I have been looking at the GT3, the R8 and the GT-R, but to be honest with you, the 370Z is a hell of a car for the price.
        I have been trying to figure out if the GT-R is really worth $40K plus.

        The R8 or GT3 would be purchased for different reasons, more showing off than anything else, lol. Their prices really cannot be justified otherwise.

      You can either Lease or buy a new car to use the cash for clunkers program. It has to be new vehicles and not used ones.

      The front grill just reminds me too much of a Dodge. Otherwise, beautiful car.

        And I assume that by "car" you mean "rendering".... since that's the only form of "completion" this vehicle has been shown in so far.

      Why does this car need an "optional" sport suspension? Do they think someone will confuse it with the new S-class?

      $5K for CF mirror COVERS, not the whole mirror, just covers, Choke.

      Thats a nice looking B & o sound system, and the carbon fiber stuff is nice, but wow 5 grand for carbon fiber mirrors. I have to see this liquid metal paint.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hooooooooooooooow much for the paint?!?!?!
      • 5 Years Ago
      I guess the camouflage comes stock.

      for all the complaining that went on to the GT-R's interior, this is almost just as spartan looking and at a premium cost

      and how can those fiber glass side mirror covers cost $5k?

      M-B is definitely going to rapee some customers with this car, though I think they'll somehow end up passing 10x that cost 60years donw the line when this car will become "wanted"

        "and how can those fiber glass side mirror covers cost $5k?"

        They're carbon fiber, which is not quite fiber glass...

      "sport suspension kit"

      I hate it when sports cars have optional sport suspensions.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow, I could buy a nice car just for the price of what they are charging for optional paint, brakes, and C/F pieces.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Looks like a pretty cool car, and I dig the interior. It's just missing one crucial thing, a proper transmission.
