So it’s not quite the big 5-0, and they’re not quite street legal, and they’re only gonna be making five of these Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary Edition models ($578,530), but that doesn’t mean the celebration should be any less. Especially considering each one is built mostly by hand, from the 6.3-liter AMG V-8 engine to the “magno graphite” paint. Even the fancy 45th anniversary graphics special, as they expose the woven pattern of the carbon fiber used in each door. So celebrate in style, guys. We’re all special.

Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe Electric

Like the theory of Texas Pete being good for paper cuts, the theory that electric cars aren’t drool-worthy is quickly losing all validity. The latest car to smash that stereotype is the Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe Electric ($536,202), a speedster that looks like it could be in Tron 4 or whatever number they’d be up to if they somehow decided to make another one of those things. With its startlingly vivid electricbeam magno paint scheme, carbon fiber front splitter, high-voltage lithium-ion 60-kWh battery pack, and ability to summon the power of 747 horses, doing 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds never looked better–or used less fuel.
2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT

As if the SLS AMG wasn’t bad (meaning good) enough, Mercedes-Benz now ups the ante with the 2013 SLS AMG GT, a 583HP-packing beast that does 0-60 time in 3.6 seconds and maxes out at a brisk 197 miles per hour. Not interested in the speed? Riiight. We’ll play along. Let’s see, there’s the 19-inch alloy wheels up front, with 20s in the back; optional leather with contrast stitching and a diamond quilt pattern on the seats and doors; and Bang & Olufsen sound system. Not interested in the speed… pssht.
