Yeah, only option it could have that's not obvious in the pictures is the AMG performance suspension. Probably have to run the VIN through MBZ to find that one out, although it's supposed to be 0.7" lower if you can distinguish that in a picture.
No AMG performance. I do not see the button in the center console.

In 2011, you could get AMG Performance Suspension but it didn't have an on/off button. It's just always active. I know this because I occasionally have to vacuum under the seats to retrieve my dental fillings.

That's correct, no button. The suspension package was stiffer springs and matching shocks. I think it lowers ride height by 0.7 inches.

Code 486 - AMG Performance Suspension
Stiffer steel springs and shock absorbers for enhanced dynamic capability in high-performance driving situations. Optional $1,500est

(Important Note: The AMG Performance Suspension features stiffer springs and shock absorbers which can have an impact on ride quality/compliance. This option is not recommended for customers who do not favor a very stiff ride with limited rebound and compression characteristics.

Attached is the dealer ordering guide for 2011. I think this was an early guide so some of the prices aren't correct, but gives you an idea what was available for options.

I have it on mine, really only bothers me on bad pothole roads. It's stiff but not outrageously. I haven't driven a non-version so don't have that to compare to, but I'm happy mine had that option since I like anything performance enhancing.

What a find! Assuming the CarFax is true (e.g., no accidents), then this SLS will move very quickly. Should be priced over $200k, IMHO.

CB engine compartment with CCB's & Bang Olsufen radio,
very rare to see an SLS with these 3 options.
Also, carfax shows 1 owner .

It's a GREAT time to buy these cars right now. The Black Series will be a million plus by 2027 and everything other SLS will be $400- 500k by then. Remember... in the USA Ford GTs ...out number SLSs by 2 to 1!

Good to know. I'll ask for a premium when I sell mine.
