Clarkson on the Merc SLS AMG
JC hates the doors and the ride, but that doesn’t stop him wanting to head straight to a Mercedes dealer to buy one...

Also, you will not get them closed. If you are a midget, by which I mean you are less than 6'2", then you will not be able to reach the handle when you are in the driver's seat. So either you will be forced to pay extra for a drop-down strap - you tick the option box marked "I am a short arse" - or you will have to ask a passer-by to shut it for you. They will not be impressed by this. Or you.
I should explain at this point that I'm being hyper-critical from the off on this road test report because I am smitten by the SLS. I love it more than I love my own limbs. And I urgently need to talk myself out of buying one.
