If you are not already familiar with the vehicle, a Mercedes SLS review is a great way to get to know this supercar. The Mercedes SLS AMG is the first Mercedes designed in house by AMG, and is said to be the spiritual successor of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. To share the details about this Mercedes, NJ dealership Prestige Motors offers this SLS AMG review.
Unveiled at the 2009 IAA, the SLS was first sold in 2010 in Europe, and 2011 in the United States. A mixture of luxury, elegance, and sportiness, both the Mercedes SLS roadster and coupe are everything people look for in a luxury sports car. The 2011 Mercedes SLS set a new standard for sports cars, but the 2012 Mercedes SLS kicks it up a notch by losing the roof to create the roadster.
To understand the excitement surrounding the vehicle, it is important to look at the Mercedes SLS specs. It is designed with a long bonnet, with the passenger compartment close to the rear axle, and the rear of the car short. The wing doors of the coupe swing upwards rather than up and forward, like the Gullwing’s did, and can be detached in a rollover accident, to allow occupants to get out of the vehicle. The roadster’s soft fabric top can be lowered in eleven seconds. With a top speed of two hundred thirty miles per hour, these cars exhibit the performance of sports cars, the cockpit of the coupe looks like an aircraft, and the luxurious interior materials remind drivers that the car they are driving is a Mercedes. The roadster is so concerned with comfort that it includes the Mercedes Airscarf, which blows warm air on the heads and necks of occupants when the top is down.
But don’t just look to a Mercedes SLS review to see how cool the car is, check out its appearances in popular culture! The SLS AMG is cover car for the Gran Tursimo 5, the Playstation racing game, and it has been the safety car for the Formula One seasons since 2011. It makes an appearance in 2010’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, as “Soundwave”, a Decepticon. In the second episode of the television series “The Cape”, a silver version of the car is driven by Summer Glau. Even cooler, in the video game “Forza Motorsport 4”, Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear says, “This is not just the greatest car Mercedes makes; right now, I think, it’s the greatest car in the world.” Many a Mercedes SLS review would back him up.
