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


2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Bang & Olufsen Illuminated Tweeters

February 6, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Our long-term 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is an expensive car. At least you have something to show for it.

Behold LED-illuminated tweeters. I kid you not.

They're part of the optional $6,400 Bang & Olufsen sound system. Illuminated speakers are a thing that B&O do on their home audio, so why not here, too? It's actually not visually obtrusive at all. But it is silly.

    "Our long-term 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is an expensive car." Now you have a 2013 model too? I hate you guys. (Yeah, I know it's a typo, but I thought I'd give you a little grief). On topic: "silly" seems to fit perfectly with this car, which itself could be considered "silly".
