SLS AMG

I've never been a fan of Mercs, but this thing is money. Way, waaaaaaay cooler than the SLR. Anyone else like it? Or hate it?

I love the new SLS, a return to form for Merc i think, just wish the thing had a manual gearbox. Just a bit tired of all this flappy paddle gearbox nonsense, give me 6 speeds and a clutch any day of the week!

I agree wholeheartedly, but I'm afraid the proper manuals days are numbered.

As the Jalop article said, the rear styling really lacks something IMO. Then there is the sheer size of it - isn't there a SLC coming, that sounds a lot better. Overall still quite an impressive car.

I don't mind paddle shifts, but worse yet this has auto transmission, on a sporting GT car? Please...

It's a dual clutch automatic with paddle shift. Similar to the Porsche PDK. Maybe makes it a little better?
