There are some things you can’t refuse, so when invited us to get friendly with its AMG what were we to do? We don’t to do things by halves, so we were into the SLS AMG Roadster and racing off the leafy byways of Surrey.

The SLS is all drama with the bonnet off to eternity, the hunkered-down body like it’s ready to It’s not a stealth-styled like supercars, but it carries a retro to Mercedes-Benz heritage, be that the shape of the nose, or the internal air

Fold away the roof and on a sunny late-Summers day, the ideal car for posing. The SLS will along with barely a so you can quietly slip along high streets without shop windows rattle. will doff their at your good taste, kids will gawp

At least that’s what think, cocooned in the cockpit of and carbonfibre (a £6,000 option), so yet so far removed from what call the real world. the SLS AMG Roadster is very much a car and once you’re behind you’ll be whipped off into own fantasy world.

Rolling is one thing, but that’s not really the SLS was made for. A dab of accelerator, the engine bites, and heads to watch as the SLS leaps forwards, you back into the leather-clad AMG Keep your foot down and the roaring doesn’t the world around you appears to as you race over the horizon.

Fortunately the Bang BeoSound AMG system (a £5,000 doesn’t disappoint and even the roof down and engine purring away, Carly Rae sounded as lovely as ever. we went there.

The steering controls, again, don’t like the most sophisticated, and the information display panel offer more for those who to tinker: gadget freaks, us. Some will argue this car isn’t about minor details, but if you’ve your house to buy one, the entertainment system might not you the biggest thrills.

Fortunately there are plenty of that will. Sitting the roof down there’s little disturbance from the — with the windows up so driving open-topped isn’t to literally blow you away, if it does metaphorically.
