2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Supercar Sunday

September 10, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The last time I took our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG to a car show, it was one of the most expensive cars there. This last weekend I took it to a local show in the San Fernando Valley called Supercar Sunday and things were a little different.

Our SLS AMG Roadster was parked amongst suped-up muscle cars, rare classics and rat-rods with beat-up grills that only a mother could love. It also shared a parking lot with the world's fastest production car.

If you're interested in seeing all the photos from the show, you can check out the full album here. Otherwise, here are some highlights.

A replacement for the Gallardo is overdue, but I still love this design.

The 911 Carrera S is extremely common in Southern California.

Several Shelby Cobra replicas showed up. For me, this is one of the best looking shapes ever to hit motorsports.

With 54 inches of rear tire tread, this wide-body Corvette has you covered in the traction department.

Rust. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

And with a customary crowd gathering around it, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

Somehow, this feels much more like home for the SLS.
