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...

The SLS looks like an elegant grand tourer. It is fitted with much leather and many luggzuries. But to drive, it feels like a foundry.
Since I quite like this, I shall move on to the size. It's nearly two metres wide. This means that it will be defeated by many council width-restrictors. And the wideness means that your passenger is very far away from where you are. So you need megaphones to talk.
