2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible: V8 Alarm Clock
June 13, 2013
Rise and shine, neighbors. It's 5:15 a.m. and I'm headed to work.
Sorry, but I can't crank this 6.2-liter V8 over any quieter. That throttle blip is built into the starting sequence.
What's that you say?
No, it just says 6.3 on the fender. The actual displacement is 6,208 cubic centimeters.
I know, right? It's not even close.

The Karma is on its way out, while the Model S is the favored new kid on the block (at least in Southern California), but why?
