It is an unjust world we live in. There are a number of cars on sale that we wouldn't be upset to see disappear. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is certainly not one of those cars. With its absurd gull-wing doors and its wonderful, ridiculous, powerful 6.2-liter, AMG V8, it remains one of the most exciting cars on sale today, despite having hit the US market back in 2010.

But because life isn't fair, Mercedes will be announcing at next week's Los Angeles Auto Show that the SLS AMG will be put out to pasture. As a sort of sendoff, it will launch a limited-edition model called the SLS AMG Final Edition, which it will also show at LA.

SLS production is set to close up shop in the middle of 2014, but before that, it'll turn out a Final Edition that improves on the SLS AMG's 583 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. We should also expect a styling change here and there, while our friends at Car and Driver are expecting an upgraded interior. The team at Auto Motor und Sport have a spy gallery of possible changes for the SLS AMG Final Edition (fair warning, it's in German).

We'll have all the details on the SLS AMG's last hurrah when it arrives at next weeks LA Auto Show.
