2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Sunday Car Show

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Even in Los Angeles, our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is the odd man out. When we park it in grocery store parking lots, shoulder to shoulder with gray SUVs and mass-produced four-door sedans, it sticks out like a sore thumb. Earlier this month, however, I took it to a small local car show where it fit right in. Click through to see photos from the show.

    I don't mean this as an insult Travis, but I knew this was your post even before I got to the bottom. This is the kind of car show that appeals primarily to the 20-something crowd. The Ferrari and NSX are interesting, but in general the slammed, massive negative camber so I can fit my 20 inch chrome wheels inside the wheel weels just doesn't do anything for me.

    Tire-stretch central. This look is so done.

  • I was gonna say -- the SLS AMG does NOT fit right in, because just about everything else is rice. :P I was also gonna say -- people still do rice?! But sadly, 10 minutes spent in my neighborhood will confirm that unfortunate fact. :(

    Excepting the SLS, Eyebleach required. Insert barfing emoticon here. I thought that level of rice had been outlawed in the Patriot Act or TARP or something.
