Comments - MT Drives Mercedes SLS AMG GT

Published: Feb 20, 2013
Description: The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is not the best track car out there. It was never really designed for that purpose, particularly when compared to something like the McLaren MP4-12C or the Ferrari 458 It...

Description: But still, if you’re looking to blow past others on a curvy track, there are better choices. However, you’d be missing out on the SLS AMG GT’s burbling 6.2-liter V8 and its 600 horsepower. It’s what a...

Yes because it is pointless
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
Man, it seems like a lot of people don't like this car! I love it!
Patrick Schalk Feb 21, 2013
I don't like this car at all but I love the sound it makes. For the cash though, I'd get a C6RS and save some monies for track time.

I want this and a GT-R in my living room
Tyler Tarbox Feb 20, 2013
You're right it's just wrong lol
Daniel Eads Feb 20, 2013
One of my favorite cars. For around 200k the only thing that might compete is the R8 GT.

@Jake there ain't nothing punk about a Falcon F7! That is about a manly a design as they get in hypercars. I want one so badly. I agree some of those other designs are a little "soft" like the 458. But sometimes curves are good if it's done right, like the McLaren P1. The SLS is an acquired taste. So is black coffee (no cream or sugar). I love both the SLS and black coffee.

Definitely rather have this than those other punk cars. Just more fun with an AMG.
Ashton Summers Feb 20, 2013
But Tyler, that's being practical and sensible. What's the fun in that?
John M Weishahn Feb 20, 2013
It's a poser's car.
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Feb 20, 2013
I would take the sls anyday!
Tyler Tarbox Feb 20, 2013
@Ashton. Not quite. That extra $250K will go down the drain in insurance and maintenance
Ashton Summers Feb 20, 2013
I'd take the roadster for good top down fun, then get the 12-C for, Idk I'd just get it. Then I would get the 458 because it is cool and I could say I have a 458. So about 3/4 of a million for three cool cars. The other 250k for saving baby seals.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 20, 2013
I agree. I would much rather have a McLaren MP4 or Ferrari 458 for the same price.
Franklin Barfield Feb 20, 2013
Yes there are other cars I'd rather have for that $250k price. In particular A Falcon F7, but you have admit that engine and the sounds it makes are indeed glorious. AMG makes their engines sound like American muscle cars. They get points for that alone!
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Feb 20, 2013
For $225,000 I would rather have a lot of other cars. 911 turbo s, Gallardo, F430, SLR, California. IMO it's just a comfortable Benz with a big engine. Like most AMG's

This car has got to be one of the most iconic figures in the automotive industry! Great all rounded car.. with a dirty v8 soundtrack!! Not much better than traveling at the sound of speed!!
Ameer Balkore Feb 22, 2013
No better than an M5
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
I think it is beautiful and the best part is the sound!
Franklin Barfield Feb 20, 2013
Oops! I meant the Charger SHOULD have a coupe version. That would be sweet!
Franklin Barfield Feb 20, 2013
I have a 122 mile daily round trip commute on the I-5/580 corridor into the San Franciso east bay area for work. On the route I get to see a lot of different exotica including this car. It is very nice looking car. Not beautiful. Handsome. Distinctly masculine like a new Dodge Charger (which have coupe version).
Tyler Howell Feb 20, 2013
pictures do not do this car justice.. it looks so much sleeker in real life
Ameer Balkore Feb 22, 2013
Mercedes is not a king now,I agree is you say Mercedes was a king
Ameer Balkore Feb 22, 2013
Tyler I say no.This interior is actually OK but its not that good
Ahmed Al Harthy Feb 21, 2013
@Tyler why is Cadillac there in the first place ??
Tyler Howell Feb 20, 2013
Hold up.. How did that comment get on here!??

Tyler Tarbox Feb 20, 2013
All Mercedes blow away their rivals in interior. Sorry BMW, Audi, and Cadillac. Mercedes is king
Shaun Conroy Feb 20, 2013
This is what Benz does best.
Ashton Summers Feb 20, 2013
Love the combo.
Jay Kolvenbag Feb 20, 2013

Tyler Howell Feb 20, 2013
