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…

But now you can manage it, you can gather up slides tidily. And all the while you’re having a whale of a time. I mean come on, with that thunderous V8 whipping you into a state of excitement, the diff hurling you out of corners and the gearbox snapping home every shift with clinical efficiency, how could you not have a good time? This SLS now does precisely what you ask of it without asking you any tricky questions back, and literally the only doubt in my mind as I head back to the pits is over the softness of the brake pedal, which I’m inclined to blame on Stig. I love it, not like you love a Porsche GT3, but more warmly and openly.
