    Reminds me a bit of the late 90s Jag XK.


    Re: SLS Roadster winter testing

    Wow, it looks so much better in cabrio form, love it.

     The roofline on the cabrio is very nice. Alos great that the choose the softtop. 


    Re: SLS Roadster winter testing

    The convertible was liked better by most of us who critiqued the car over two years ago. Our only complaint was that the wind shield was not sloped back enough (rakish).

    That's positive IMO, because if the wind shield is too much raked you don't get the open car car feeling as much with the hood down.

    That's true mostly in the coupe/cabrio variable roof cars.

    How come you never got a SLS Nick? A fast, powerful cruiser with plenty of noise - sounds perfect for your Starbucks trips

    I like it too. For me the better choice over the gull wing. But that's kind of personal preferences.

    And really good to see this proof  that it can handle your north African winter conditions as well...   Smiley

    Re: SLS Roadster winter testing

    Good question. MY feeling was that it would not be sporty enough. From day one, viewing it in the hall along side a Turbo, 430, Gallardo, 599, AM and SL63 it looked to me as out of place.

    The car sounded right but I considered it a GT car with a lot of power; nothing more. 

    I will admit I have been surprised with its performance on the Ring. You never would have guessed it by looking at it.
