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...

Especially if you are going fast. All AMG cars are noisy when you accelerate - and it's not a trick either involving valves. They're that way from the get-go. The SLS though... is more noisy than anything that has gone before, for more of the time. On a steady cruise, it settles down and hums, but if you even think about pressing the accelerator, the barking and the bellowing is back, with a vengeance.
