The beautiful Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing is arriving in India, with pricing starting at Rs. 2 crore. This hyper-car will only be available to the select few at that price with a host of optional extras to choose from pushing the cost up even more.

Priyadarshan Bawikar over at Zigwheels.com is reporting that AMG, Mercedes own in- house tuning firm developed and designed the car as the successor to the McLaren-Mercedes SLR. The AMG brings back the spirit of the original 300SL Gullwing from 1954 with the iconic doors and wide radiator grille with large Mercedes-Benz star.

The AMG has a lovely 6.3 litre V8 under the hood producing a powerful 571 PS of power, with 650Nm of torque. All this power is transferred to the rear mounted 7-speed dual clutch transaxle, which can launch the car from standstill to 100km/h in an amazing 3.8 seconds. With a top speed of 315km/h the car is certainly no slow coach.
