Putting into its pace at Mercedes Technology Center (MTC) in Sindelfingen, Germany, the new http://sls-amg-special.com/com/en” target=”_blank”>SLS AMG Roadster is starting to take shape before its September debut at http://iaa.de” target=”_blank”>Frankfurt International Automobile Show. Though development for both coupe and roadster went along side-by-side from the start, engineers at http://mbusa.com” target=”_blank”>Mercedes-Benz and its http://mercedes-amg.com” target=”_blank”>Mercedes-AMG performance division took several factors into consideration before launching the roadster. Not just a mere drop-top variant of the coupe, the removal of its roof changed the driving dynamics for the roadster. To counter the effect, Mercedes added a stiffer chassis. Mandatory to any convertible, the test vehicle went through a rigorous phase of simulated rain and cold tests to see if the fabric top hold its integrity. Other improvements include the 250-watt subwoofer of the http://bang-olufsen.com” target=”_blank”>Bang&Olufsen BeoSound AMG sound system, re-calibrated inline for the addition of wind noise. More details to come as folks at Affalterbach put together the final touches.
