Mercedes-Benz revealed the 2012 SLS AMG soft-top Roadster a few days ago, and this 563-hp sportscar demands a high price. Available later this year, the $183,000 Merc may be missing the signature gullwing doors, but it certainly does retain the coupe’s power and sex appeal.

The SLS AMG will be powered by a 6.2-liter V8 front-mid engine producing 479 lb-ft of torque, a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and an aluminum space frame body.

Amazingly, the soft-top can open and close in 11 seconds and operates at speeds of up to 31mp/h (50km/h). Three colors are available for the soft-top in red, black and beige.

“The SLS Roadster is a super sports car, cruiser and highly desirable dream-car all in one. In its distinctive way, it continues the succession of iconic and exciting sports cars from Mercedes-Benz,” said Dieter Zetsche, chairman of the board of management of Daimler AG and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
