What are customers are saying about the Mercedes SLS in Dubai, UAE
Tyler - I had to import my second hand Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series from the US as they are very hard to find in Dubai. Impressive car, incredible power and just looks better than anything else on the road. Pros: Doors, looks and power. Cons: Even though the doors are amazing, I still get scared when I open them.
Mohammed - Pre-owned convertible SLS AMG may not have the doors but still looks great. Perfect for the UAE weather especially during the winter time. Pros: Options, power and looks. Cons: Heated seats but no cooled seats and interior is a little cramped.
Majid - Amazing cars, very powerful, amazing sound and the interior is comfortable for a sports car. Price can be a little high. Pros: Power and looks like nothing else on the road. Cons: Can’t be driven every day.

2010 saw a ‘Desert Gold’ edition launched at the Dubai International Motor Show in the same year. Featuring a unique coat of gold paint, blacked out side intakes and rims, very few were produced and rarely pop up for sale. Australians were also treated to special edition covered in Night Black and red highlights. Engine specs, drivetrain and gearbox all remained the same to standard models.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed sports auto transmission with manual shifting modes.
