Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Test drive report

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Nice test drive report here of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster including video. Enjoy!

There are several ways to get to Monte Carlo once you’ve landed in Nice. There’s the train, a 23-minute meandering trek over and through the wooded undulations of the intervening cities that deposits you at Monte Carlo’s downtown station. There’s a taxi, more than 30 times the cost of a train, and it takes twice as long, but it does offer service porte à porte. Or there’s Heli Air Monaco with a fleet of choppers stationed at the Nice airport. Those fine gents can get you to the Monaco heliport in eight minutes, floating past seafront redoubts and over an azure Mediterranean dotted with billions of dollars of sailing and motor yachts.

Of those three modes of transport, only one is appropriate when Mercedes has invited you to Monte Carlo to drive its new SLS AMG Roadster. We offered the appropriate “Mercis” to our chopper pilot for providing a smooth ride.
