2011 Los Angeles Auto Show
2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster
A mouthful? Yes. The most impressive single piece of automotive joy from this show? You bet. Last year, Mercedes-Benz revived the gullwing body style of the iconic 300 SL. While the upward-opening doors were head-turning and the performance was impressive, the overall coupe profile was not gorgeous. Enter the $195,000 roadster version.
The unbroken beltline, matched with the elongated hood of the SLS, results in one of the most stunning cars on the road today. It is fitted with the superb 563-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 found in many other AMG Mercedes performance cars. The combination should make for pure driving bliss.
