2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Drop the Top in Ten Seconds

January 21, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

While my esteemed colleagues were living it up in idyllic Detroit, the cars available to me back at Edmunds HQ were decidedly inspiring. For two days each, I snagged an Aston Martin Vanquish and our long-term SLS Roadster (I prefer the SLS, by the way).

Even though the weather in L.A. was unusually cold, I dropped the Benz' top at every chance. And it drops/deploys quickly. Ten seconds is all it takes to start enjoying the raspy exhaust note and the wind in your hair. And it only takes a lift or push on the silver lever shown above.

I don't know what the quickest convertible top is, but it wouldn't surprise me if the SLS is it.
