Between the two famous summer villages Båstad and Torekov runs an amazing road called “the italian road”. It so happens to be the place where I met my first love.
At a particular point of the road one can find a sweet spot with a gorgeous view over the ocean. Annually a meeting about the most beautiful car ever made is hosted there – the 300SL.
As the SLR became outdated Mercedes-Benz needed something new and fresh to replace it. In my opinion the SLS was the right guy for the job. I also think it was the right decision to wait with the 300 SL tribute until technology allowed for Mercedes-Benz to do it justice.
The SLS is an awesome car with a V8 delivering 563 bhp.
One might think that its properties would resemble that of the “normal” SL but where the SL is an autobahn-tourer the SLS has a more track-oriented approach to life.
Mercedes-Benz will release the SLS AMG in at least 5 different versions. The regular SLS AMG, the SLS AMG Electric Drive (powered by 4 electric engines), SLS AMG GT (tuning, updated transmission and suspension), SLS AMG Roadster (Convertible, best car in the world according to Jeremy Clarkson) and the unholy beast, SLS AMG Black Series. The Black Series is set to hit the market in Q2, 2014. They amped up the output to 622, raised the redline from 7200 to 8000 rpm and lowered its weight by 70kg.
After you’ve watched what Clarkson has to say about the roadster you should head over to The Billionaire Shop to acquire your own.
