The pure adrenalin and endless fun that presenter Patrice Bouédibéla experienced on his first ride in the SLS AMG, he will never forget. Not only, because Bernd Schneider, the five time DTM champion is at the wheel of the new Mercedes-Benz super sports car. But above all, because the gull wing is absolutely uncompromisingly in its performance!
Mercedes SLS AMG Trailer
The Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is going to celebrate its world premiere at this
year's IAA in Frankfort. The super sportscar thrills with puristic design,
consequent lightweight construction and superb driving dynamics. Under the
bonnet of the gullwinged car there is an AMG 6.3 litre-V8-front-middle
engine working with 571 PS max. performance. Inspite of its sportiness the
car meets all the high demands towards safety and every-day-usability.

Toyota is rolling their spin machine on the new Toyota Auris HSD Full
Hybrid Concept. The study will have its moment in the spotlight at the
Frankfurt Motor Show later this month, before hitting the salesroom floors
Even though the car can be driven either on petrol alone, or just electric,
it can also run on a combination of the two. Unfortunately, the engine's
power figures do leave quite a bit to be desired. Although it uses a
reasonably sized engine, featuring a 1.8-liter displacement, it only
manages to put out 97 horsepower. This leads to a
0-100 km/h time of "around 10 seconds," which means that the car probably
hits 100 in 10 to 10.5 seconds under lab conditions, and maybe a second
slower in the real world.

Highway, the open road, tunnels and a roundabout. We had a hell of a time.
