The Stig versus the Mercedes SLS Black
Our tame racing driver gets sideways in the very maddest Merc before a road trip to AMG headquarters…

So, despite the distance markers to Karlsruhe now seeming to be measured in metres, I cross back into the slow lane. And, at 150mph, the Black squirms. Justin whimpers. The Black, so stable otherwise, does not like truck ruts.
Soon after, and from Justin’s point of view, not entirely disappointingly, there are road works, then a grey dawn timidly gets going, and then we have an encounter with an SLS Roadster (brunette WAG riding shotgun, natch) and finally we’re there. A small, neat village 20km north of Stuttgart. Affalterbach. AMG HQ.
