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…

9pm. The Black is so full that my wallet has been wedged into the doorhandle. Photographer Justin’s and my elbows are fighting for ownership of the centre console, and 1, Daimlerstrasse, Affalterbach is in the satnav. I’ve had another couple of attempts at deciphering the underbonnet script (pictured above), but I’m sticking with Sunday Jonathan.
My chief concern is that I don’t have the earplugs that AMG’s head ofdevelopment Tobias Moers recommended. I’ve trusted him implicitly ever since he told me the adjustable rear wing was a “gimmick”. Oh well, it’s not like the V8’s unpleasant to listen to. Watch out, France, here we come.
