2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG coupe

The SLS AMG is far more surly, scrappy, and downright ballsy than we ever expected from a Mercedes.

I had the opportunity to drive the SLS AMG gullwing coupe the day after I drove the SLS AMG roadster, and the moment I pulled out of the magazine office’s parking lot, I knew I preferred the coupe. I appreciate its clearer sense of purpose, not to mention its rigidity, and I like its deliberate nod to the 1950s 300SL Gullwing, one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz models of all time. And it is the gullwing doors that never fail to wow people. People notice the car, certainly; they know it’s something important and substantial and desirable, even if they don’t immediately realize it’s a Mercedes-Benz. And then when you open those gullwing doors? People go berserk. I let a few random folks I met sit in the driver’s seat, and it was clearly the highlight of their week. If not their year.
