The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Is the Forgotten Mercedes Supercar

Makina dhe automjete

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is a special high-performance supercar -- but it's the "forgotten" supercar of the Mercedes-Benz world. Today I'm reviewing the SLS and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the SLS Roadster. Then I'm going to get it out on the road and drive the SLS Roadster.

    It's insane how much mercedes interiors have evolved in 10 years. A base A class basically has interior as good or better than this car.

    In Europe SLS was considered too flashy, too much showing off, you can see Clarksons review and what I'm talking about. We know our cars and Mercedes especially, so no one here would mistake it for other Mercedes, at least no one interested in cars. But that kind of people buys supercars. For me, it is one of the most beautiful modern cars and true Merc.

    fun fact, the convertible cost roughly the same as the coupé in sweden where i live. right now is the cheapest sls a coupé closely followed by a convertible which is just a tad cheaper than another coupé and yes, you are right. top down gives you more sound, but the sound is plenty enough in the coupé with the added benifit that it is nicer on longer drives. and for the people who wonder, i'm no fan of a convertible, it is because they weigh more, are less stiff, have more wind noise when the top is up and I personally think they don't look as good with the top down as a coupé does. but that is just me so if you love your convertible is that awesome! all that matters is that you love your own car

    Yes, that annoys me. He also compares 80’s cars acceleration to today so if it doesn’t go 0-60 in 2.9 seconds it gets a bad score. I think he gave the Mk 4 Supra twin turbo like a 4 or 5 out of 10

    @Doug DeMuro 13:30, The “looong front end” isn’t just for looks; it’s so they could put the engine behind the front axle, thus making it a mid-engine car. And the engine is not near the middle for “weight distribution” (although it would make that a little easier); it is there because it gives the car a lower polar moment of inertia-a physics thing that means things turn easier when the weight is closer to the middle.

    cite ( "...before my current format." - well, the time before "your current format" sported some cool pastimes (offroading, overlanding the Aston Martin, dumping the PT Cruiser, ...), which caused me to subscribe. I miss those aspects, although I suppose (and would fully understand), that you are putting your coins on maximum viewer reach with regular standardized reviews instead of those great episodes. I'd rather see another offroading or Humvee episode, than the absolutely most-expensive Bugatti (which I also like!). It just seems that "my current format" is narrowed down to very streamlined car reviews. Maybe there is an option on your second channel?

The shorts and always wearing 2 t shirts god damn I must stop hating but this guy is horrible in every way if he didn't have money he would be in jail for doing something horrible to someone coz he couldn't have his own way fax

    Thiiiis, is not a forgotten car! The SLS is the definitive AMG Coupe, the last of the Golden Years of AMG. The soundtrack of the engine is the highlight of AMG-Mercedes partnership before the emissions really killed cars. The design is subtle and brilliant, and it doesn't have badges everywhere. Why? Because everyone knows what it is and loves it, but we love the coupe even more.

    The holes in the sun visor are so that you can see traffic lights with the sun visor down. Since the windshield is low you cannot see under the visors to check the light.
