MONTVALE, NJ - The all-new 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will go on sale in May at U.S. dealers. The gullwing supercar will be priced from $183,000, plus shipping.

The U.S. price tag, not surprisingly, is considerably lower than the retail sticker in Europe. When Mercedes began accepting orders last fall after the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, it pegged the price at roughly $201,000 - or $240,000 including VAT.

In the U.S., the SLS AMG will be priced in the same ballpark as the Aston Martin DB9 and a tad below the Lamborghini Gallardo.
