Anyone else think the SLS has matured? I didn't think it was much of a tribute when it came out- but the specs on this car are really impressive. AMG built it from the ground up. It's the last naturally aspirated V8 from Mercedes-Benz and it reminds me a little of the Ford GT - when Ford told the engineers to go nuts and build the most incredible car they could... I think AMG got the same go-ahead here and went nuts. It is no 300SL - but it is a very cool car in its own right. ...
Daniel MichelComparing the Mercedes Gullwings to the Ford GT is absurdly blasphemous. The "SL" name has been produced consistently since the 50's. The line has racing pedigree in many events. It is as iconic of a sports car as a Corvette, maybe. But the car has very little similar to the Ford GT.3 weeks ago · 1

In swtzerland the average price in the mid eighties for a gullwing in good condition was about sfr 150.000,00. The price remained stable for quite some years. i had the oppotunity to drive and to buy a roadster in non restored condition for sfr 117 th sfr. It went to germany, and Kienle restored and sold it. You can go from 40km to 160km per h at the third with incredible drive, and the sound is sooooo amazing...... Sadly i had not the money back then. In 1993, there was one available for 105th pounds, a roadster with red leather and silver paint. A dream.... ...
Frank Govers100% agree. First and foremost, these are cars! Some people have made them "collector items" hence, "private" museum pieces. Let's hope the 300SL will be seen on the roads again in 2016 onward1 month ago · 1
Carl MadsonGreat winter scene, lovely car -- super that the first supercar is getting out in the crisp air. And clearly there's no reason to hire a model (driver?). Plus I like the arrow that's saying "Insert Driver Here."1 month ago
