Mercedes-Benz Australia is pleased to introduce Concept 358 and a very special SLS AMG. Both vehicles were co designed by Mercedes-Benz Australia and built by AMG exclusively for the 2010 Australian International Motor Show.

“Australia is one of our favourite markets,” said Mario Spitzner, Director Branding, Marketing & Sales Mercedes-AMG. “We were asked to create two unique AMG vehicles for the Australian International Motor Show.”

“I hope you enjoy them as much as we did building them,” said Spitzner.
