Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG goes for gold in Dubai

By Auto News Log • December 17th, 2009

Given that the Middle East is one of the best luxury car markets in the world, you’ll certainly won’t find a Tata Nano at the Dubai Motor Show, unless it is covered with gold or something like that. But in case you love the precious metal, you will find a special Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar, decked out in a matte gold paint.

The special edition is just for showcase though, but Mercedes officials did reveal that if demand is high, the “AMG Desert Gold” paint scheme will be available when the supercar enters production at the beginning of 2010. Hear that oil tycoons?

The special paint is in stark contrast with the rest of the accessories on the car, which are painted black, from the wheels to the Mercedes-Benz star in the grille. On the inside the same color is used, which also blends with carbon fiber, heavily used on the center console for example.

If the 6.3-liter V8 supercar doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can opt for the G55 AMG 79 Edition, which is also on display at the Dubai Motor Show.
