The functional highlight in the interior is the AMG DRIVE UNIT inclined towards the driver. It is also available in real carbon.
Enjoy the jet-inspired design of the new E-SELECT selector lever for the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission. The driver can choose between P, R, N and D modes by simply touching lightly on the drive-by-wire system. In the vehicle is stationary, the park position is activated by simply pressing the P button – this also happens automatically when the engine is switched off. The rotary control switch for drive modes (including the Race Start function) and buttons for engine start, ESP® functions, AMG memory function and the extendable rear spoiler are also located here.
The drive authorisation system KEYLESS-GO with KEYLESS-GO starting function makes locking, unlocking and starting the SLS much easier. The vehicle is locked/unlocked automatically by simply pressing a button on the transponder. The engine is started using the central start/stop button on the AMG DRIVE UNIT in the cockpit.
The AMG instrument cluster (including AMG main menu with RACETIMER) features two puristic round dials within the driver's field of vision. They provide key information, including road speed, engine speed, fuel level and engine oil temperature. Between the round dials, the driver receives additional data, including kilometre reading, range, fuel consumption, driving distance, driving time and average speed. The instrument panel also features an upshift indicator, which uses seven LEDs to indicate the best time to change gear.
When the ignition is turned on, the speedometer and rev counter indicators move across the whole range of the dials together before returning to their initial position.
