Mercedes SL, Mercedes AMG PureSpeed speedster, design, performance

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled the PureSpeed concept, the first model from its limited-volume and highly exclusive Mythos range. Essentially a two-seat speedster based on the SL roadster, the PureSpeed swaps a conventional windscreen for an F1-inspired halo. The world premiere of the Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed concept took place ahead of the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix being held this weekend.

  1. Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed gets F1-inspired Halo instead of a windscreen
  2. Uses SL 63 4Matic+'s 585hp, twin-turbo V8
  3. Limited to 250 units

Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed: design

The car’s design is inspired by the AMG One, with prominent grille areas at the front end. It has a unique livery that fades from red to grey and sports the number 10 on its flanks—a reference to the Mercedes that won the 1924 Targa Florio.

Another highlight is the Halo, which replaces the conventional windscreen. The Halo is a direct derivative of the one used in Formula One cars to protect the driver’s head in the event of an accident. The Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed’s Halo comprises a bracket that is connected to the vehicle’s body.

The speedster is based on the SL 63 4Matic+, which has a 585hp twin-turbocharged V8 and four-wheel drive. Mercedes has announced that it will produce just 250 units of the vehicle and make it “available to the most dedicated Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and collectors”. Deliveries are expected to commence next year.
