This year the gorgeous Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will be handed one of the most prestrigious design awards, the “iF product design award.” The 24-member jury chose 778 entries from around 2500 candidates in 16 categories. The SLS AMG took the top crown in the “Transportation Design” category. Prof. Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Mercedes-Benz: “This sought-after award for the new SLS AMG is a great honour for us. It also reflects the extremely positive feedback on the design of the SLS that we have been receiving since the September world premiere at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt/Main.” The SLS AMG is the first Mercedes vehicle to be built in-house by AMG. It’s expected to ship in Europe mid-2010 and later in the US for less than $200,000. Additional shots after the break.
