Discussion in 'SLS AMG' started by Deutsch, Jun 20, 2007.
Door handles. Yay.
I'm the doors sure will have automatic open/close system & will be opened by remote control (via "key" card) de facto every time - except when something goes wrong.
So, actually no need for exterior handles at all - except for emergency reasons. And even then - as we heard - the doors are blown up automatically as well.
OMFG, this car is so nice! I think this one has beaten the X1 when it comes to slow releases, this car has been shown for a couple of months now with no more disguise than a couple of gaffa stripes...
Can someone explain those diagonal suspension springs - usually the springs are positioned vertically.
Since I'm not in supercars that much : is this normal in such cars to use non-vertical position of the springs? Are this SLS AMG is something special? How low is this car? 115cm? Lower?
I was being sarcastic EnI, given the amount of discussion around the design and placement of the door handles earlier in this thread. :t-cheers:
At least this car's slow release isn't as bad as the new Camaro's. That thing took like 5 years to come out and we saw it everywhere until it actually did.
sure, they're safe, when they're not on their roof or driving mothers and their children off the road.
does that count as pwnage? ( that's a jailbreaking tool for the iPhone btw )
What are you referring to for I said no such thing, sir.
BTW...yeah, I know about Pwnage tool, I've used it.
That's illegal sir, I would NEVER do that
Can somebody explain to me those "almost horizontal" front springs. Is this a regular solution in supercars, or it's something MB is coming out with exclusively. :t-hands:
Or is this solution limited to electric version of SLS ... or perhaps also the regular SLS version will feature such solution?
How does this think work ... these non-vertical almost horizontal springs? :t-hands:
I guess this solution is there to keep the nose height as low as possible ... Any other advantages? :t-hands:
I have only seen it used in light sportscars and supercars, where the height of the installation is crucial.
This is from the KTM X-Bow.
SLS AMG + delighted Dr. Dieter Zetsche a.k.a. Moustache Man:
Wow,I am already in love..
Ohhh....stunning...just love it....but why is it next to a (relatively) old S-Class?
Well, I don't know why, but what I do know is that this is a new version of the S-Class, that is to be launched at the IAA(and there the car will be dressed in the new S-Klasse FL clothes). It is called S 500 Plug-In Hybrid.
This SLS is just so gorgeous...I have to have one!
great car...love it timeless design:banana::t-roses:
Now it's safe to say it was the real car in the AutoBild shots.
I can't believe the same car company that builds this
Also builds this...
Fabulous car, just stunning.
