What's the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (2010 – 2015) like to drive?
On the track, actually.
Mercedes Benz deemed it far more sensible to confine its cars to a racetrack than to let a bunch of journos loose in them on Britain's crowded, speed-restricted roads.
And what a race track. Glorious Goodwood, no less, with its flowing corners and occasional undulations.
3 laps with MB DTM Driver Suzy and 3 laps out by myself with MB instructor Austin were enough to convince me.
Given more time, I might have got my head around changing gear too rather than leaving the car to do it for me.
What a fabulous piece of kit for for the super rich, including footballers.
