My Dream Car
By James82 on
2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 7AM)
When I heard the announcement for this car, I started saving for it and after a disappointing 5 month wait, it arrived. This car is absolutely beautiful on the exterior, if that hasn't been figured out yet. Performance is great and is absolutely invigorating to drive, attracts lots of stares and those gull wing doors are one of a kind and I open and close them constantly like a little kid. On the bad side, the interior is not too impressive, traction is pretty bad on wet roads and I will never drive it on those ever again. You also might want to get used to double parking as you never know how close someone will park based on the gull wing's incline angle. Overall, a dream come true.
Stunning exterior, authentic exhaust soundtrack, gull wing doors are one of a kind, amazing performance, pretty good exclusivity, loads of envious stares, very good customer service and sales experience, very generous warranty, exceptional interior features, surprisingly comfortable ride.
Exotic pricing calls for a more luxurious interior, exotic pricing, highly priced performance braking system, poor traction unless road is dry, excessively worrying about everything that "could' happen to it, better make sure you have the financial obligation for insurance purposes.
