An exceptional UK/right-hand driveexample with just 3,997miles (atoc)and full Mercedes-Benz service historyFrom a privatevendor, in as newcondition with just two diligent owners from newNormally-aspirated 6.2-litre AMG V8 with 563bhp matched to a 7-speed, double-clutch AMG Speedshift gearbox, giving a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 197mphImpressive specification including a carbon centre-console, carbon wing mirrors, Command Navigation, AMG Active Body Control, AMG Performance steering wheel, 10-spoke Diamond-cut AMG alloys, Alcantara roof liner, 'Airscarf' neck-level heatingRemarkably torsionally stiffwith a bodyshell that weighs a mere 2kg more than that of the Coupewith anidentical drivetrain and lightweight carbon driveshaftsA supremely refined and capable open-top supercar with the added benefit of being engulfed in the rousing soundtrack of one of the bestV8 engines ever produced by AMGThe Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster isthe open-top version of one of the most sought-after supercars of the last ten years. Its low, sleek and sufficiently dramaticto stop pedestrians in their tracks, but can it possibly compete with the SLS Coupein the way in which it drives?With no exaggeration, reviewers of the Roadster were quick to say that it's an even more convincing proposition to drive than the Coupe. The level of grip is remarkableand it stops with great conviction, but where the soft-top really presses its case isin the more subtle areas of its handling repertoire, many of which are a nudge ahead of itsfixed-roof sibling. The engineering changes Mercedes made to counter the loss of rigidity caused by the absence of a fixed roof provide the SLS Roadster with an even more fluid feel to its handling.Pushed hard, it feels better balanced and, with its overzealous traction control turned off, it's nothing short of sublime. The SLS Roadster possesses better body control and greater levels of feedback than the Coup, and if there is any lack of rigidity it is never obvious. AMG claims that minimal strengthening to the chassis was required to compensate for the lack of a roof, as the car was designed as aRoadsterfrom the start. Tweaks include thicker aluminium for the sills, a reinforcing cross-member under the dash and another brace positioned behind the seats. The end result is a level of torsional stiffness thats almost identical to that of the SLS Coupe.Its not lacking in performance, either. Boasting the same 6.2-litre V8 as the Coupe, the Roadster produces 563bhp and 479lb.ft of torque generatingan official 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds, while top speed is put at a bouffant-rearranging, 197mph. And without a roof to filter out its soundtrack, there are tiny nuances in the exhaust note evident inthe Roadster that you just dont notice with the Coupe, whether it be entertaining pops and crackles on a trailing throttle or the NASCAR-grade growlon a wide-open throttle.But perhaps the Roadsters most persuasive sales attribute is its striking appearance, which is nothing short of spectacular. The retro-inspired exterior, credited to British-born Mercedes designer Mark Featherstone, lends itself well to the open-top treatment, giving the roadster a satisfyingly low-slung look that sets it apart from its fixed-roof twin. AMG has also introduced optional electronically adjustable dampers on the Roadster, with three settings, Comfort, Sport and Sport +.The car presented here is a 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster in simply as new condition. The original owner was a friend of our vendor and when the Mercedes was offered for sale, knowing the car and itsfastidious ownership, he jumped at the chance to buy it. As good as youd expect, with just 3,997 miles (at the time of cataloguing) from new, an enviable spec and a full-service history with Mercedes-Benz.
