Yea the person that insulted south park needs to get out haha. Corvette interior's are very outdated and look like crap compared to the SLS's. But exterior looks are arguable. I'd go for the ZR-1 though, and that's IMO. It's just such a beast.
Jackson Michael Jun 28, 2012
Woahwoahwoah did someone just insult South Park?
Henz Herrero Jun 27, 2012
Some troll had to piss ppl off.. I love the vette and the acr as much as you guys but the sls is jst soo different.. Thats why i was upset that it was a decepticon cuz its jst soo damn gorgeous..
Jordan Smith Jun 27, 2012
And don't get me wrong. I'm not hating on the Vette. In fact, I love them, but people shouldn't compare a ZR1 to an SLS. They're 2 completely different vehicles.
Jordan Smith Jun 27, 2012
I believe the R35 got a 7:22. So this isn't faster. And again, why must people compare 2 completely different cars? People shopping for an SLS AMG wouldn't even consider the Vette because that's not what they're looking for.
Zachary Maurer Jun 27, 2012
Lol how much you wanna bet even wont comment back...
Joshua Minh Tran Jun 27, 2012
Is this lap time faster than the 2013 R35's? I know looks wise it's a sexy beast and makes the R35 look like a G35. As much as I admire the R35....this car is just amazing to look at.
Patrick Joseph Jun 27, 2012
Evan. The same could be said about the corvette. What's your point.
Grant McHendry Jun 27, 2012
& @Evan go look at the pic below of the interior. you're telling me that looks cheap? WRONGG.
Grant McHendry Jun 27, 2012
@Evan didn't expect that many people to point out all those flaws in hos argument. I love this car so much!
Harrison Trapnell Jun 27, 2012
How was it not going sideways all the time?!???
Justin Routh Jun 27, 2012
Wow evan is dumb
Zachary Maurer Jun 27, 2012
I'm going to drag race My grand tourer with a track oriented light weight P.O.S... And it's not overpriced... Isnt it only like 150,000, and it looks a lot nicer than a vette, but everyone has opinions...so let the troll have some fun...
Paul Gladman Jun 27, 2012
again u retards will find any way to drag that stupid ZR1 or ZL1 into the mix of a car thats way above its class. keep your lap time and your barely quicker 1/4 mile time. the SLS is a whole different type of car
John Serely Jun 27, 2012
Brian and Jackson, your totally right
Jackson Michael Jun 27, 2012
You can't complain about the interior and then say the corvette is better.
Dillon Magee Jun 27, 2012
And how is it ugly?
John Serely Jun 27, 2012
@evan actually the interior is great, I've sat in one (it blows the zr1 away) plus, this is a gt car, not a track car, which you don't seem to know
Keenan Casteel Jun 27, 2012
Or you could get a Viper ACR that beats both these cars at the Ring. It's not much more that the ZR1.
Keenan Casteel Jun 27, 2012
@Evan, It's not slow... And you could own one of these and say "I have gullwing doors." That alone beats the ZR1. Plus, this is better built, has a better ride, and doesn't fall apart.
Evan Cook Jun 27, 2012
Does the nurburgring in *7:19
Evan Cook Jun 27, 2012
The only thing I hate about this car is its slow, ugly, overpriced, and cheap looking in the interior. You can get a corvette zr1 that's significantly faster (does the nurburgring in 1:19) for $60,000 less. I think I've made my point.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Jun 27, 2012
The fact that this is an enhanced pure bread amg means that the suspension on this has to be significantly firmer and more uncomfortable
Alex Bouckley Jun 27, 2012
Oh my gosh, TWENTY HORSEPOWER! That's amazing though, that it beat a 911 Turbo
Jay Kolvenbag Jun 27, 2012
Just search for "nurburgring lap times" to see which cars" he beats, it is more than 10 seconds faster as a 911 turbo S, its a GT!!!!
Blue Label Jun 28, 2012
Go rent one Hank, then we can talk
Hank Austin Jun 28, 2012
Got to sit in one of these 2 days ago... So much classier in person
Theo Hubbard Jun 27, 2012
I want one cuz its a "gullwinged lunatic" - J Clarkson
John Serely Jun 27, 2012
Such an awesome car

I heard they have to round up by law
Zachary Maurer Jun 28, 2012
As I believe isn't the engine a 6.25 or 6.275 or somthing and they just round it, I thought I heard that somewhere... But I'm not sure
Austin Bride Jun 28, 2012
It's actually a 6.2 they just say its a 6.3 for some reason I don't remember. Retard.
Jackson Michael Jun 28, 2012
Maybe they meant to put on the 0-60 but got it backwards
Lee Gardner Jun 27, 2012
On the car it said 6.3
Alex Bouckley Jun 27, 2012
Speaking of wheels, this paragraph was in the other story about the SLS AMG
Description: Top speed has been electronically-limited to 197mph. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT's time of 7:30 beats the previous version's record lap time on the Nurburgring by a solid 5 seconds. Sa...

oops yeah sorry 3 more mph :p and yeah i know but i think they should have limited it to 200 :p
Thibault Leroy Jun 28, 2012
i think simbolicly they couldve gone for 200 just 3 more horspowers isnt too much
Jackson Michael Jun 28, 2012
Sometimes parts of a car just can't handle speeds of 200+. And 197 is still an excellent number.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Jun 27, 2012
Why would you limit the top speed to 197, thats almost as dumb as the SL blacks limited top speed of 199
Dillon Magee Jun 27, 2012
I saw agree one the other day. It was spectacular.
John Serely Jun 27, 2012
I love the long hood
Henz Herrero Jun 27, 2012
I agree.. Shudnt be called the sls if you take away the gull wings..
Ryan Kimmel Jun 27, 2012
Cool looks and nostalgia aside, they are cumbersome pains in the ass. Not that it should be practical, but ❌a daily driver if you like practicality.
Noah Gavurin Jun 27, 2012
agreed, but to each their own
Lee Cascio Jun 27, 2012
I don't think I would be willing to trade the gullwings away for a drop top.
MissLaura Anne Jun 27, 2012
Those doors make the car the beaut it is!
Keenan Casteel Jun 27, 2012
It says "Here I am, love me."
Ardavon Nazari Jun 28, 2012
I wish they had a manual version
Evan Thicke Jun 28, 2012
Love the red trim
Andrew Hubbard Jun 27, 2012
The interior is so sick.
Carlton Salmon Jun 28, 2012
So many buttons. Like the cockpit of a small aircraft! Lol!
Jake Knickmeyer Jun 27, 2012
That's a whole lot of buttons
Frank Dreitlein Jun 27, 2012
yummy...flat bottom..
Carlton Salmon Jun 28, 2012
How on earth did Evan come to the conclusion that the interior of an SLS looks cheaper than the one in a ZR-1?! What's he been smoking?
Blue Label Jun 28, 2012
Evan sounds Like a cheap red neck bully walking around with a straw hat, overalls, and barefooted
Steven Velez Jun 27, 2012
evan needs to find a new hobby
Frank Dreitlein Jun 27, 2012
copy, paste...man's best friend.
John Serely Jun 27, 2012
You already said that, even. And those are not good points, considering it is actually very fast, and a better interior than the car your comparing it too haha
Evan Cook Jun 27, 2012
Does the nurburgring in *7:19
Evan Cook Jun 27, 2012
The only thing I hate about this car is its slow, ugly, overpriced, and cheap looking in the interior. You can get a corvette zr1 that's significantly faster (does the nurburgring in 1:19) for $60,000 less. I think I've made my point.
Matt White Jun 27, 2012
Merc needs to come up with some cooler gauge clusters. BMWs new LED for the entire cluster looks amazing and makes everything else look pretty dated
