Mercedes SLS 4 door patent drawings
This will come as a surprise.
Mercedes is apparently considdering a 4-door version of the SLS.
2 wing doors and 2 suicide doors.
It is trying to get this door setup patented.
These drawings were offered and filed at the Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt.
Mercedes is going Panamere style with this.
There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

Mercedes actually considering a 4-door SLS? Aston Rapide competitor possibly in the works
Well, this is something we would have never predicted. An SLS turned into a sedan? Really? Well, that is if you believe these patent drawing which sure seem to be authentic and are creating quite a bit of buzz. Mercedes seems to be considering meshing the gullwing doors with a traditional hinged door design for the rear. Mercedes will not confirm or deny the car but we think this would be an awkward and unnecessary step. However, at least they have the guts to try different things though and expand their model lineup every which way it can go. Even areas nobody would have guessed.
