#8220;AMG Lightweight design strategy

The trailblazing shell structure of the SLS AMG Coupé Drive is part of the ambitious Lightweight Performance#8221; design The battery is located within a monocoque which forms an part of the gullwing model and as its #8220;spine#8221;. The monocoque housing is bolted and bonded to the aluminium body.

The fibre composite have their roots in the of Formula 1, among other The advantages of CFRP (carbon-fibre plastic) were exploited by the engineers in the design of the monocoque. include their high which makes it possible to extremely rigid structures in of torsion and bending, excellent performance and low weight.

Carbon-fibre are up to 50 percent lighter than steel ones, yet retain the level of stability. Compared aluminium, the weight saving is around 30 percent, while the is considerably thinner. The weight achieved through the carbon-fibre monocoque are reflected in the agility of the SLS AMG Electric Drive and, in with the wheel-selective four-wheel system, ensure true enjoyment.

The carbon-fibre battery is, in addition, conceived as a #8220;zero cell#8221; in order to meet the highest expectations in terms of safety. It protects the battery inside the vehicle from or damage in the event of a crash.

The for CFRP construction is provided by carbon fibres, ten times than a human hair. A of this innovative fibre from here to the moon weigh a mere 25 grams. 1000 and 24,000 of these are used to form individual

Machines then weave and sew into fibre mats layers thick, which can be into three-dimensional shapes. injected with liquid resin, this hardens to the desired structure its final and stability.

Optimum weight distribution and low of gravity

The purely electric system was factored into the as early as the concept phase the super sports car was being It is ideally packaged for the integration of the zero-emission technology: by way of example, the electric motors and the two transmissions can be as close to the four wheels as and very low down in the vehicle. The applies to the modular high-voltage

Advantages of this solution the vehicle#8217;s low centre of gravity and weight distribution – ideal for optimum handling, which the gullwing model shares its petrol-driven sister model.

New axle design with damper struts

The additional drive called for a newly front axle: unlike the production vehicle with AMG V8 which has a double wishbone the SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive an independent multi-link suspension pushrod damper struts. is because the vertically-arranged damper had to make way for the additional drive

As is usual in a wide variety of vehicles, horizontal damper are now used, which are operated via push rods and transfer Thanks to this sophisticated design, which has already tried and tested in the world of the agility and driving dynamics of the SLS AMG Electric Drive attain the high levels as the V8 variant. distinguishing feature is the speed-sensitive steering with rack-and-pinion gear: the power assistance is electrohydraulically rather than hydraulically.

AMG ceramic composite for perfect deceleration

The SLS AMG Coupé Drive is slowed with the aid of AMG ceramic composite brakes, boast direct brake a precise actuation point and fade resistance, even in operating conditions. The over-sized – measuring 402 x 39 mm at the front and 360 x 32 mm at the rear – are of carbon fibre-strengthened ceramic, an integral design all round and are to an aluminium bowl in a radially arrangement.

The ceramic brake are 40 percent lighter in weight the conventional, grey cast brake discs. The reduction in masses not only improves dynamics and agility, but also comfort and tyre grip. The rotating masses at the front also ensure a more steering response – which is noticeable when taking bends at high speed.

high-quality design and appointments

the multi-award-winning design of the SLS AMG is combined a number of specific features are exclusive to the Electric Drive The front apron has a striking CFRP front splitter generates downforce on the front The radiator grille and adjacent air adorn special areas in the vehicle colour and with honeycomb-shaped openings.

They are not only a visual but, thanks to their optimised design, also air flow over the cooling mounted behind them. headlamps also impart a of independence to the front section. from the side, the #8220;Electric lettering stands out on the vehicle as do the AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels their specific paint

The SLS AMG Electric Drive comes as with 265/35 R 19 tyres on the and 295/30 R 20 tyres on the rear. The look is rounded off to dynamic by the new diffuser-look rear apron, and the rear lamps. One feature exclusively for the SLS AMG Coupé Electric is the #8220;AMG electricbeam magno#8221; paint finish.

A choice of other colours is available at no cost.

When the exterior AMG electricbeam magno is chosen, the sporty interior makes use of body colour for the contrasting – the stitching co-ordinates perfectly designo black Exclusive appointments. AMG sports seats and carbon-fibre trim elements in the underscore the exclusive and dynamic of what is currently the fastest car. Behind the new AMG Performance wheel there is a newly AMG instrument cluster: instead of a rev there is a power display information on the power requirements, status, transmission modes and charge.

AMG Performance Media as

The AMG DRIVE UNIT comprises the rotary switch for selecting the transmission modes of #8220;C#8221; Efficiency), #8220;S#8221; (Sport) and (Sport plus), which the can use to specify different performance from the electric motors, in turn also changes the top and accelerator pedal response. the buttons for #8220;power#8221; and #8220;ESP there are also buttons for AMG Dynamics and AMG Setup.
