2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Long-Term Road Test

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: 20,000 Miles

March 7, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Our long-term SLS turned over 20,000 this past weekend, just after coming down the hill of Newport Coast Drive, past Vanessa Bryant's $3 million near-divorce concession prize estate, onto Pacific Coast Highway north of Laguna Beach just in front of The Beachcomber's Shake Shack.

But of course even though there are 20,000 miles on the odometer, we're only responsible for about 4,000 of those. We've driven it around town and worked it out at the track where it posted a 0-60 in 4 seconds and a quarter-mile in 11.7 sec. Editor Oldham took it on an epic Viking run to Mount Rushmore. It just went in for a service. Watch for an update on THAT invoice. Only wish we could keep it around for another 20,000.
