Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster: Revealed in Super Bowl ad

Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster

As promised the Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster has been revealed in last night’s Super Bowl ad. Have a look!

Among the newcomers were two new cars not yet officially unveiled, including the SLS AMG Roadster and C-Class Coupé. Also shown was the CLS 63 AMG and new SLK.

Taking the gullwing SLS supercar as a base, the new SLS Roadster is fitted with a storming 6.2-litre V8 and twin-clutch gearbox but ditches the famous doors in favour of more traditional units.

Instead of using a heavy and complex folding metal arrangement for the roof, as seen on the SL, Mercedes has elected to fit a revised version of the canvas top which used on the previous SLR roadster.
