The Stig versus the Mercedes SLS Black

Turns out the security guard is quite used to AMG owners turning up on spec wanting to shake the hand of the man who built their engine. And it’s easy to track him down – he’s one of only three that have been trained to assemble the SLS Black engines. So, five minutes later I’m shaking hands with Sivadas Inthrathas (pictured above), congratulating him on a fantastic job and telling him his handwriting needs a bit of work.
