2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Snow Donuts Video
March 22, 2013
Yabba dabba doo and all that. But this photo, taken somewhere between Rapid City, South Dakota and Mount Rushmore, only tells half the story. You see I had just gotten the SLS stuck in that thick white stuff trying to get this photo. It was embarrassing. And it was pure luck that the muscle of a local and burly John Pearley could push the big Benz free.
It was the only time over the 3,000-mile trip that the combination of the Pirelli winter tires and the Mercedes' state-of-the-art traction control system failed us.
Still, it's only half the story. The other half, the fun half, was captured on video. Check it out on the next page.
