2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: But, Officer
April 16, 2013
No, I didn't get pulled over for going fast in our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. But I can understand why, say, sticking to the 40-mph speed limit on surface streets would be difficult for some people driving this car. Not only does its power come on smoothly but just look at that speedometer. Is it just me or does "40" look as if it's located in the usual "20" spot? Then again, 40 in this car looks and feels sooo slow.
For comparison's sake, take a look at the speedos for our long-term Subaru Impreza, Porsche 911 and Cadillac ATS.
