2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the mighty 2012 Mercedes-Benz
SLS AMG. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior
of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting
unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the
details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A
thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Mercedes Gullwing 300 SL - Greatest Ever Sports Cars Nº6
" Inspired form and revolutionary function come together in the Mercedes
Gullwing SL at number 6."
" It's such a work of art. It really is, you know, it's stunning. It's
better than any Picasso."
" The lines of the Gullwing are pretty much perfect. The frame of the car
has its wonderful torch shape and yet has really voluptuous curves, but
they're not the voluptuous curves that, like the Chevy Corvette, which are
a bit over the top and brazen and showy. These curves are kept in check and
you know that the car has been designed to be super aerodynamic and yet
it's hugely glamorous at the same time."
" Driving a car and then the doors got up a little gas struts was really
Christ, but if you wanna make a steer in those days you arrive in a
Gullwing, you've made it."
" Certainly, the Gullwing is a milestone car, aesthetically,
technologically. I mean it stunned the world when it came out. Everybody
just went, "Holy Mack! Look at the technology that is put in that thing.""
" Its tubular space frame made the Gullwing extra rigid, crucial for
control at high speeds, and at only 82 kilograms, the frame was as light as
a feather, but those same tubes took up a room where the bottom of the
doors would go, so instead, they would hinge on the roof and lift up as
opposed to out."
" It was a practical piece of design, but warmed up becoming the car's
" I mean those doors were just unbelievable. They really look like a bird
with the window---- with the doors open, and when you pull them down,
you're in this cocoon."
" You know what [unk]."
" Getting out is more difficult because you actually gotta get your bottom
on the ledge back up from the seat and swing out, but you see Mercedes
gentlemen are so clever. [time-0:02:00] They have to think of all these
things because what happens if a woman is driving wearing a skirt."
" There's a bar under the steering wheel. When you pull it out, the
steering wheel goes out like that, so now you can raise yourself, flip your
legs over. See, the gentlemen think of everything, damn them! Yet another
innovation. This was the first production car in the world to use fuel
injection. It was one of the most important high-tech advancements in the
history [time-0:02:30] of sports cars and yet the concept of fuel injection
is deceptively simple."
" With a carburetor, you got pressure from the fuel tank barrel pumped, but
it's low pressure and when you put your foot on the accelerator, the fuel
falls into the manifold like that, mixes with the air, explosive mix, and
the car accelerates."
" With fuel injection, it's different because the fuel is actually
propelled at high pressure into its cylinder, [time-0:03:00] mixed with the
air, and it's the exact amount of fuel, so it's efficient. It is the most
combustible fuel-air mix so that you get the biggest explosion, and
therefore, the greatest amount of acceleration and no wastage."
" Well-renowned the world over for its glamorous looks and technical
achievements, it wasn't always the easiest car to drive."
" Driving it, it's a truck. You know, it's a big heavy thing. The brakes,
you've gotta [time-0:03:30] push your, you know, the pedal through the
floor to get it to stop."
" And the Exhaust ran right underneath
the car, so the floorboard gets really, really hot. It will melt your
tennis shoes, and it has big swing axle in the back, so when you really got
a hole in the butt, you could get it squarely very easily, so it was sort
of like riding the bull."
" It was unpredictable on the corner and the suspension wasn't actually
very good. We should push it 'cause the rest of it is brilliant.
" It's not the nicest engine, no. It's not the nicest looking. It's not the
nicest interior, but as an overall package, it is one of the greatest."
