    just as the whole car feels quite different from a 458 Smiley

     Any news of yours ? Is it still stuck in the docs ?

    You haven't drove the car before you order it??


    no i had no chance to as all these cars are special order only. actually i had no chance to testdrive any of the cars i bought over the past ten years as i usually order before they are released to the market.

    however, with the cars that i usually order, its a pretty safe bet except for the cobra.

    when the sls came out, it was the only car i wanted. i was not choosing between it and a 458 for example. hence, no need for a test-drive really.

    then again, surely i would not mind having a dealer where i could go for test runs in all the cars i aspire.

    then again, it's better to be able to order the cars without a test-drive than to be able to go for a test-drive and not be in a position to order Smiley

    a last resort would have been to have test-drives arranged on my travels. but usually i cannot be bothered when travelling on a tight schedule.

    I love the way it looks but i wasn't considering getting one till i drove it. I was blown away. I had a chance to drive my brother's SL Black Series it's a great car but I'd take the SLS any day over it.

    well, it's not really stuck there. i prefer leaving it there for the moment. it's in the container which is a safe option for now.  i guess in a month's time things will have settled enough to be able to clear it.

    The Cobra is the most beautiful you have and most special one isn´t it? Pure collector car. What didn´t you like about it?

     Not the best time to bring out such a beauty ........ I understand you want to play it smooth and safe. It is actually in the best possible place . I hope all will be better soon .

    oh, it's great. it's just that i had absolutely no idea of how it would feel to drive. more thrilling than i could have ever imagined.

    Not the greatest pics.  In the flesh the car is far more impressive.  It's a very different drive than a 911, that is fore sure.   I will follow up with an SLS versus 911 review.  They are not really in the same fighting class so to speak. I have read just about every SLS review there is and not many of them capture the car very well, based on a few days' worth of driving.

    Re: Dreadful Freedom

    You are right to a large extent there.  The SLS motor is spectacular.


    Re: Dreadful Freedom

    Great car, congratulations! That is one of the very few cars I really lust after.

    Re: Dreadful Freedom

    It looks great, and the vs 911 review from a real owner should be very interesting. The red interior looks great and i love the shot in the garage, i have a thing for pictures of sports cars in underground garages.

     Funny how long it looks compared to the E-Class. Must be 8 Meters or something. Smiley

    Re: Dreadful Freedom

    You have to sit in it to understand how big the car is. The hood looks like it will never end.

    It reminds me of a tennis shoe.Smiley

    BTW, the convertible will look much better. Smiley

    Re: Dreadful Freedom

    Beautiful car, i love it

    I saw a silver SLS next to a black 458 in the wild the other day and the SLS made the 458 look like a little cheap kit car

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