We've all been wondering when the SLS AMG will be put out ot pasture, and whether or not AMG will follow it up with another gullwinged supercar or just focus on the smaller, lighter, less powerful SLC that's currently in the works. Unusual door enthusiasts (e.g. everyone) should be happy to know that a successor is indeed in the works.

“We probably won’t do a Volkswagen Golf 5, 6, 7 with the SLS because of the unique gullwing doors and so on and so forth. It’s not something you just do one after the after,” said AMG CEO Ola Kallenius. “I am not suggesting we should wait 55 years to do the next gullwing car, but certainly not straight after the one we have done now. That needs to sit in automotive history as its own chapter.”

Regarding when the SLS will meet its end, he said “We haven’t said yet -- we will say soon. But if you want to buy one strike now.” That said another gullwinged super car can be expected in 2020, so we all have plenty of time to save our money.
