Wow!!!!!! It even made me like that God awful SLS. Not that I complain about its fabilous engineering. I mean Mercedes AMG has my utmost respect and they produce cars in general that I absolutely adore, but the shape of this one? Hmmm? Terrible!

Or is it only me? What do you guys thing?

Oh, I also thought the diriver was going to be Schumacher, just wait what Mercedes will do with that!

I agree - not in love with the exterior styling - thought they might have been able to do something a little better. But it's beginning to grow on me.

The ending was the best part. It sounds amazing.
I wonder if they are going to get rid of the 6.3L in the SLS and replace it with the 5.5L TB motor, as they are doing across the AMG line up.

Funny you should say that. Duncan tells me that someone you both know watched this video:



And new it was you driving and didn't even know you had a MR M3!

Just found out tonight at the VIP night at the auto show that the SLS list is only $198000 cdn and with all the options about $250000.Much cheaper than I thought and looks great in person.The only other thing of real interest was the Fiat 500 babe.Bmw had nothing new there besides the Z4is,no LCI M3 or 335is's.The classic display is fucking awesome with all the old Shelby racecars and I met Bob Bondurant & talked to him for a bit which was pretty cool!
