Compact AMG Sports Car Being Developed Is Possibly A Baby SLS

Last year rumors spread that AMG was working on a new compact sports car, and now reports are coming in that it may debut at an auto show later this year. And similar to the SLS AMG, this new two-seater coupe will be branded as an AMG vehicle rather than a Mercedes-Benz, similar to what Dodge is doing with their SRT Viper.

There aren't many details on the new AMG model, which at one time used the codename of SLV where V stood for variable body styles. It's now believed that the smaller two-seater coupe will be positioned against the recently-announced Porsche Boxster and even the Cayman. Compared to the SLS AMG, a smaller vehicle will conceivably handle better and when paired up with a smaller engine, will offer better gas mileage than what the SLS AMG offers at 14-mpg city, 20-mpg highway.

Clearly one of the main reasons AMG is exploring new models is to help absorb the research and development costs they just poured into the SLS AMG's aluminum spaceframe architecture. It'll also be interesting to see if AMG has more in the works perhaps a performance-themed sedan that could slide in under the CLS?
