2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

In any case, this car can hold its own with most any sports car carrying a price tag of less than a quarter of a million bucks (we expect the SLS AMG to cost about $175K when it makes it over here early next year). AMG was solely responsible for the content of this car, and it shows, as our European correspondent Juergen Zoellter gleefully discovered in a balls-out first drive of an SLS AMG prototype. In his review, Zoellter details the featherweight aluminum space frame (just 531 pounds), as well as the sonorous 6.2-liter V-8 engine, which sits well aft of the front axle and makes an extremely potent 563 hp at 6800 rpm and 479 lb-ft of torque at 4750 rpm. The AMG-engineered mill comes mated only to a seven-speed, dual-clutch automated manual transaxle with multiple shift settings. The traction-control system has a launch mode much like that on the SL63 AMG (and the Porsche 911 GT2, and Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, and Aston Martin DBS, and . . .) that could help even your grandmother achieve something close to the 3.6-second 0--60 time Mercedes quotes for the SLS AMG. As for handling, Zoellter sums it up by saying: "It is mind-blowingly simple to drive the SLS quickly." This is something that each one of us here cannot wait to verify for ourselves
