2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: An American in Stuttgart? - Ignition Episode 21
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago hits the test track and the
winding road with the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. With its
imposing size, brute power and booming Exhaust note, the SLS Roadster feels more like a
classic American muscle car than a refined German coupe. But is that a good

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of Mercedes' newest world-class supercar, the 2011
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Presented by Chris Moran
It's five and a half feet long. It weighs 8.8 pounds. Height of an adult
female, weight of a gallon or so of gas—these are the critical dimensions
of the carbon-fiber driveshaft running between the engine and the
rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. We note this here
because, despite the car's retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is utterly
bleeding edge—both in terms of its technical attributes and what it
represents for Mercedes' in-house tuner. It is not simply a Mercedes with
bigger wheels and a breathed-upon V-8 or V-12. It is, down to its churning
carbon-fiber core, AMG's first dedicated automobile and the very antithesis
of the overly complex and overweight half-million-dollar Mercedes SLR
"The SLS is a serious super sports car," says AMG chief of development
Tobias Moers before taking a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car
that still managed to weigh in at 3858 pounds. "Our SLS weighs only 3572
pounds," he says, nearly 300 pounds lighter than the McMerc. Keeping the
182.6-inch-long, two-seat SLS's mass in check is its entirely aluminum
construction (save for that driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for
Mercedes-Benz. The aluminum structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes
The most distinctive aspect of the SLS's appearance is, of course, its
roof-hinged gullwing doors, an homage to the iconic 300SL Gullwing. But AMG
personnel took pains to point out that the doors are the only thing the SLS
has in common with the 300SL. "We do not build a retro car at all!" AMG
boss Volker Mornhinweg explains sharply. "In fact, we think it is the most
advanced super sports car you can buy today."
Those gullwing doors look spectacular. Unlike with the original SL, where
one had to slide over a wide sill because of the space-frame structure
underneath, it's easy to access the SLS's cabin. There's only one issue:
Riders need long arms to reach the distant handles at the bottom of each
door to pull them closed.
The interior is simple and uncluttered, much like a current SL roadster's.
While the car's structure is a pure AMG design, most of the parts, except
for the shifter, are from the Mercedes bin. The instrument cluster is clear
and easy to read, and we love the round HVAC vents. The center console has
an aluminum finish, with carbon fiber an option.
Press the starter button on the center console, and the now-familiar,
AMG-designed 6.2-liter V-8 awakens with an angry yelp. The idle is deep,
and the revs rise and fall race-car swiftly.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster - Deutsch
Seit zwei Jahren hat Mercedes wieder einen Flügeltürer im Programm und
wie sein Vorbild aus den 1950er-Jahren ist auch der aktuelle SLS ein
Traumwagen. Nun stellte Mercedes ihm einen Roadster an die Seite. Ob der
noch mehr Fahrspaß bietet, wollten wir bei einer Ausfahrt herausfinden.
Mercedes SLS Roadster
Zwei Jahre nach dem „Flügeltürer" bringt Mercedes die offene Version
des SLS. Beim Roadster kann man das Bollern des V8 noch besser hören --

2012 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster Interior and Exterior
The new Roadster adds a second exciting dream-car to the SLS AMG family.
Head of Design at Mercedes-Benz, Gorden Wagener: "As in the gullwing model,
the pure, athletic design immediately catches the eye. Whether with the
roof open or closed, the SLS AMG Roadster is an impressive visual delight!"
The perfect proportions are particularly memorable: a long hood, the
greenhouse positioned well to the rear and a short rear end.
