    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Nick, check this out... http://www.autogespot.com/nl/viewimages.php?id=1214748364802042011193933

    IMHO SLS AMG is one of the very few examples where both coupe and cabrio versions look excellent.


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

     Kreso, thanks.

    I did see the cab with the top down over two years ago and was impressed. I really think it is a good looking car. I did not know if any pictures of the cab with the top down were ever posted. Good find.

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

    I really like the shape of this cab more & more.

    Beautiful car, a true Benz! So much style and class, yet a supercar with understatement

    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

     beautiful!

     

    pity it gets a bit boring when u open the doors.

     

    wonder how well it will sell considering most people get drawn to this car cos of the gullwing doors.


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

    I can see SL customers upgrading very easily...

    Maybe, the best front engined?

    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

    Hmm... No. SLS AMG Roadster looks way better then 997.2 cabrio(or 991 cabrio if we look at spy pics). 40kg more weight is acceptable in most cases. If you want sportscar with open top and price is no limit you can not go wrong with SLS AMG Roadster.


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

    I was thinking more of R8 V10 Spyder, rather than Porsche as an alternative to the Roadster. How do you compare the two?

    Can you summarize the + and - of each from your experience with these cars, please?

    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

     - 11 out of 10 points   - although I would miss the gullwing doors probably the best looking convertible to me.....in white of course....


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

     No doubt. One of the best looking cars in the market!!!!

    R8 V10 Coupe

    +engine, one of the last V10 on the market. Excellent in power and torque delivery

    +confidence inspiring drive dynamics

    +very, very good ESP setup

    +gated manual gearbox

    -shows its age in some areas like AWD setup(which is very good indeed but, it is after all 5 years old design)

    -not that practical(mini trunk)

    BTW, R8 V10 will get power bump for MY13(from May 2012) to 540ps and new 7speed R tonic will be offered as well(since my source told me that this is new Graziano updated sequential manual you can also expect NO manual version from MY13).

     

    SLS AMG Coupe

    +engine, true monster of power and torque

    +excellent drive dynamics with truly awsome traction for RWD

    +DCT very good indeed(actually excellent in auto modes and good to very good in manual mode)

    +also confidence inspiring for driving

    +relatively practical for trips

    -gullwing doors not that practical

    -optional AMG Ride Control suspension a must(or AMG Performance suspension if you like conventional pretty hard suspension)

    -not the best headlights in business


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

    Very, very nice...much better looking then the coupe!


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

     I like the SLS in any of it variants ! 

    It would be my choice if I would get something else then a 911

    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

     Is this the AMG Monza Grau Magno?


    Re: SLS AMG Roadster-official preintro

    I think this is the new Sepang Bronze metallic matt finish.
