2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Don’t sleep on the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Not saying you are, but they don’t seem to get a lot of love compared to all the other wild and crazy cars out there. Maybe it was just a strange time to launch an exotic super car, or maybe it looks too much like an SL, but I think this car is very much something that will go down in history as a car to have. I’ve pleaded the case many times before for the SLS, so I figured I’d do a yearly reminder that these are probably at the bottom of the price curve right now as they are nearing 10 years-old. It has Gullwing doors for goodness sake!

These Cars Are Getting Harder To Come By.

Personally, I take a peek at these every quarter or so to see where values are, and they haven’t moved much. We are even seeing the roadster versions sell for under $100,000, which I think is crazy, but it does make sense that they are priced less than the Gullwing cars. The floor for the coupes seem to be around $120,000, with really low mileage cars going for much more. Production on these cars was surprisingly high,1,837 coupes and 884 roadsters, given how these were a ground-up project developed totally by AMG with very little parts sharing. This example is California comes in with an impressive 40,000 miles, which is the highest I’ve ever seen on one of these, and still looks good. The price?

This one is at $124,500, which I think is high. We saw a white one back in February with 30,000 miles sell for $120,000, and it surely had a lot more info other than 14 words that say nothing at all. The two-tone red is a little odd, but then again this is a car with doors that stand straight up. I think it is probably $10,000 too much, so if you could get it at that price, it would be a nice buy. Either way, I don’t think these stay at these prices forever.

    I think those are a great buy in that price range. If someone is looking for the excitement of an F430, but with lower maintenance and better reliability, this is the car. They have great styling and build quality.

  2. I agree about the great buy in this range and it might be bought lower. It seems that sellers with low-quality pictures and/or text tend to come down some. 21 words about the car fall into low-quality text. And to Andrew’s comment about the red/black interior, I much prefer that over an interior where there is nothing that isn’t wrapped in garish red leather.

    gull wing doors were never a good idea… overpriced low production non part sharing with serious insurance costs, what’s not too like? this will surely impress the valet staff… actually these are wonderful drivers cars with explosive performance and sound really good going away quickly…
    i have a neighbor, a pro footballer with one of these and it is beautiful and he drives it like a drunk teenager impressing his first date… if you have the dosh then have at it, probably the best benz
    you can buy… but the black series are pretty cool too…

  4. These things are an absolute riot to drive.

  5. Why are these so much more expensive in Europe?

    The least expensive one on AutoScout24.de is 152k Euro.

    Export this one to Europe and profit >25k Euro after shipping cost.
