2012 Mercedes AMG SLS Roadster


Cold, dark and snowy. Doesn’t sound like the right place for a supercar, and an even worse place for an open top supercar? But it’s exactly where AMG and Mercedes are doing the final testing of the Roadster version of the SLS. A real supercar should work in all conditions, even if it’s a Roadster. And this time they have taken the cover off the roof and are finally showing the roof line with the canvas top on.

Alongside the SLS Roadster prototype the AMG guys had an Audi R8 V10 Spyder for comparison.

There will be no technical changes to the Roadster compared to the Gullwing but since there is no fixed roof and therefore the body has been strengthen and added some weight, we suspect that the Roadster could be slightly slower. But that’s nothing we would complain over while cruising in the snow…….well, I mean at the French Riviera.
