REPORT: Is Mercedes-Benz mulling a possible 4-door SLS AMG?

Mercedes-Benz is keen to expand its portfolio of supersport vehicles and the power to do that is in the magic hands of AMG engineers. We have recently reported the midsized SLC AMG is just about being approved for serial production; in addition, a high-end 700 hp choice above the current SLS is also on the discussion table. A new generation of the modern Gullwing is due to go on sale towards 2015/2016 and now, after seeing this intriguing set of allegedly official patent drawings that lately emerged on interwebs, we wonder if Mercedes-Benz is seriously exploring the possibility of offering a 4-door SLS AMG hardcore limo. Rather unlikely for becoming a real model, the vehicle retains the roof-mounted Gullwing doors, receives two extra, backwards-opening rear ones and sports a B-pillar-free architecture, which should raise a dozen of problems concerning body rigidity. We feel such design proposal, even though interesting and catchy, would better fit a small, specialized tuner to produce it in limited edition. But, as well, the German carmaker could impress the public with an identical concept car at a future motor show.

Dear readers, what do you think about this 4-door SLS AMG? Also, see more sketches after the jump!
