RETTmobil, Europe’s largest trade fair for rescue and mobility, will have an interesting concept car on display this year. Mercedes-Benz will be strutting out an emergency medical concept based off of their SLS AMG flagship, which is hardly the vehicle any of us would think about first when it comes to an emergency vehicle.
The image shows your standard silver SLS AMG receiving a traditional red and blue light treatment along with red graphics and the word Notarzt (emergency in German) on the side. Not many details were released with the image, but we reckon the SLS AMG’s 6.3L V8, 571-hp performance would get help quicker to those that need it.
Official press release available after the break.
