2010 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Mercedes-Benz are unleashing a legend of the future with their all-new SLS AMG, a 197mph sports supercar and the spiritual successor to the original gullwing 300SL.

The newcomer, launching in the UK in early summer, is powered by an AMG 6.3-litre front-mid V8 engine, generating an awesome 571 horses and capable of accelerating from a standstill to 62mph in a head-spinning 3.8 seconds.

The people at Mercedes are promising best-in-class fuel consumption figures of around 21.4mpg and sensational handling characteristics. It is likely to set you back around £140,000, in the same ballpark as the gorgeous Ferrari 458 Italia.

MM verdict: another German work of art for those with the readies.
