I don't think any V8 engined Merc has come ever as a manual.

Well maybe some of the early 350s.

AMG is also working on a purely electric version:

Quote:
Affalterbach – Mercedes-AMG is paving the way ahead: with the new SLS AMG with electric drive, the performance brand within Mercedes-Benz Cars is developing an exciting super sports car with zero-emission high-tech drive. This model sees Mercedes-Benz and AMG displaying their expertise in the development of alternative drive solutions for high-performance super sports cars, delivering further proof of their pioneering status in this market segment.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMGwith electric drive transforms the vision of powerful and locally emission-free super sports cars into reality thanks to an innovative drive system: powerful forwards thrust is provided by four electric motors with a combined peak output of 392 kW and a maximum torque of 880 Nm. The four electric motors are positioned near the wheels, substantially reducing the unsprung masses compared to wheel-hub motors. One transmission per axle transmits the power. This intelligent all-wheel-drive system allows dynamically optimised power transmission without any losses by means of Torque Vectoring – in other words the specifically targeted acceleration of individual wheels. In its first pilot phase, the SLS AMG with electric drive incorporates a liquid-cooled high-voltage lithium-ion battery of modular design with an energy content of 48 kWh and a capacity of 40 Ah. The 400-volt battery is charged by means of targeted recuperation during braking whilst the car is being driven.

Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in around 4 seconds
When it comes to dynamics, the electrically driven SLS AMGdelivers an unequivocal statement: the swing-wing model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in around 4 seconds – putting it on the same high level as the SLS AMG with a 6.3-litre V8 engine developing 420 kW/571 hp.

"With the SLS AMG with electric drive, we wanted to redefine the super sports car. For us, it is not just about responsibility. We attach just as much importance to excitement and classic AMGperformance," says Volker Mornhinweg, Chief Executive Officer of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Optimum weight distribution and low centre of gravity
The purely electric drive system was factored into the equation as early as the concept phase when the new swing-wing model was being developed by Mercedes-Benz and AMG. It is ideally packaged for the integration of the high-performance, zero-emission technology: by way of example, the four electric motors and the two transmissions can be positioned near the wheels and very low down in the vehicle. The same applies to the modular high-current battery, whose modules are located in front of the firewall, in the centre tunnel and behind the seats. Advantages of this solution include the vehicle's low centre of gravity and the balanced weight distribution – ideal conditions for optimum handling, which the electrically powered SLS AMG shares with its petrol-driven sister model.

Key data at a glance:

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with electric drive
Max. output
392 kW
Torque
880 Nm
0-100 km/h
Approx. 4 s
Rated capacity
40 Ah (at 400 V)
Energy content
3x 16 kWh = 48 kWh

The installation of the drive components required no changes whatsoever to the swing-wing model's aluminium spaceframe body. And there were just as few constraints when it came to maintaining the excellent level of passive safety and high degree of long-distance comfort that are hallmarks of Mercedes cars.

Strategic alliance for fast electrification of the car
The electrically powered SLS AMG sees Mercedes-Benz and AMGcontinuing to pursue their aim of minimising the amount of time it takes to bring about the electrification of the car. Their strategic involvement in Deutsche Accumotive GmbH & Co. KG, a joint venture between Daimler AG and Evonik Industries AG, will provide the battery technology required in future. Daimler has the leading role in this joint venture for the development and production of batteries and battery systems for automotive applications.

This will be mated to a 7 speed dual clutch transaxle which will yield a weight distribution of 48:52.

The car will cost about 250K and also be gulwingy - it's supposedly gonna feature a ew aluminum construction technique to lower weight. The floorpan and body is made out of forged, cast, and sheet aluminum which sounds cool to me (but it's no carbon fibre).

Enjoy the spyshots below.

EDIT: Source with more info.
That's a future car made by mercedes. Take look at the other picture version of that car.

Any modern SL is vile and not a fitting tribute to the 300.

I'm not sure. I'd rather have something than nothing, like what Honda did- cancel everything cool for the time being. I mean, why bother then?

Sure, the modern SLs may be missing out on the Sport and the Light part, but at least they sure as hell sell. And the AMG versions are a hoot.

i like the whole thing about going lighter in the press release. might change away from mercedes' patented "huge boats with so much power they become pointless" trend

Just remember - a Benz is luxury first, sports second.

I honestly am not sure that that was the case for the original SL - was it a sportscar or GT? Sport first or luxury first? I don't know enough about it to know for certain.

i know of this really great automotive resource, where they have pages about all of these different cars, with all sorts of information where you can learn all about them. unfortunately i seem to have forgotten the name of this site. i bet you could look around and find it.
