The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is a special high-performance supercar -- but it's the "forgotten" supercar of the Mercedes-Benz world. Today I'm reviewing the SLS and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the SLS Roadster. Then I'm going to get it out on the road and drive the SLS Roadster.

I can't believe Mercedes discontinued this wonderful motor and announced that the new C63 "AMG" will only come with a soyboy 4-cylinder shitbox.

Idk about this coupe situation. This one looks better in my opinion, a little cheaper, i don't give a f about the doors, the rear windows looks weird on the coupe. If i had to buy one, it would be this one for sure

If they are going to accommodate smokers to the point that they have an area where you hold your lit smoke why not have a gentle smoke suction feature to expell the smoke? Black glovebox latch so it stays clean looking and so old people can find it. What ever happened to M.B. being the conservative company? The one that didn't cater to the bling and flash styling fads that become dated. Huh Doug?

It's insane how much mercedes interiors have evolved in 10 years. A base A class basically has interior as good or better than this car.

In Europe SLS was considered too flashy, too much showing off, you can see Clarksons review and what I'm talking about. We know our cars and Mercedes especially, so no one here would mistake it for other Mercedes, at least no one interested in cars. But that kind of people buys supercars. For me, it is one of the most beautiful modern cars and true Merc.

The keyfob has a battery, therefore car can start with key in the pocket. When battery dies in the keyfob, car could be started with the transponder key inserted into keyhole. Keyfob also has regular mechanical key hidden in it.

fun fact, the convertible cost roughly the same as the coupé in sweden where i live. right now is the cheapest sls a coupé closely followed by a convertible which is just a tad cheaper than another coupé and yes, you are right. top down gives you more sound, but the sound is plenty enough in the coupé with the added benifit that it is nicer on longer drives. and for the people who wonder, i'm no fan of a convertible, it is because they weigh more, are less stiff, have more wind noise when the top is up and I personally think they don't look as good with the top down as a coupé does. but that is just me so if you love your convertible is that awesome! all that matters is that you love your own car

This is one of the best engines of all times. No turbo non-sense. There was just one reason these kind of naturally aspirated engines with high rpm capability were not build anymore: Fuel consumption and emission ratings (more non-sense).

Yes, that annoys me. He also compares 80’s cars acceleration to today so if it doesn’t go 0-60 in 2.9 seconds it gets a bad score. I think he gave the Mk 4 Supra twin turbo like a 4 or 5 out of 10

@Doug DeMuro 13:30, The “looong front end” isn’t just for looks; it’s so they could put the engine behind the front axle, thus making it a mid-engine car. And the engine is not near the middle for “weight distribution” (although it would make that a little easier); it is there because it gives the car a lower polar moment of inertia-a physics thing that means things turn easier when the weight is closer to the middle.

cite ( "...before my current format." - well, the time before "your current format" sported some cool pastimes (offroading, overlanding the Aston Martin, dumping the PT Cruiser, ...), which caused me to subscribe. I miss those aspects, although I suppose (and would fully understand), that you are putting your coins on maximum viewer reach with regular standardized reviews instead of those great episodes. I'd rather see another offroading or Humvee episode, than the absolutely most-expensive Bugatti (which I also like!). It just seems that "my current format" is narrowed down to very streamlined car reviews. Maybe there is an option on your second channel?

In certain areas of the globe this man would be referred to as a "gimp". Child's brain and dress sence, completely unaware of itself. If u disagree watch him review someone's Tesla and lick the screen, as if it's ok to do that to someone's car. The shorts and always wearing 2 t shirts god damn I must stop hating but this guy is horrible in every way if he didn't have money he would be in jail for doing something horrible to someone coz he couldn't have his own way fax

Thiiiis, is not a forgotten car! The SLS is the definitive AMG Coupe, the last of the Golden Years of AMG. The soundtrack of the engine is the highlight of AMG-Mercedes partnership before the emissions really killed cars. The design is subtle and brilliant, and it doesn't have badges everywhere. Why? Because everyone knows what it is and loves it, but we love the coupe even more.

The “storage bag” in the trunk, looks to be intended for The removable wind deflector.

Regarding the perforated sun visors, I wonder if that was intended to help them resist the effects of buffeting with the top down? Perhaps they wouldn’t otherwise stay In the open position above certain speeds?
