For The Mercedes SLS is a striking supercar with brutal performance and awesome grip. It's comfortable on all types of roads, and the V8 engine makes a glorious noise.
Against The interior is a bit of a letdown in terms of style and quality – it's not much more special than those of most other Mercs. The gullwing doors are a head-turning feature, but they're not practical.
What Car? says
AMG's first bespoke supercar is a winner – the Mercedes SLS is rapid, massively grippy, fantastic fun, yet easy to use. The interior could be better, but that doesn't detract from the drama of the car.

There are 2 Mercedes-Benz SLS versions available
Target Price team says:
You'll have to hunt down an AMG specialist dealer to order your Mercedes SLS, and you'll have to be patient, too – there's a very, very long waiting list.
Options are limited to lightweight forged alloy wheels, ceramic composite brakes, stiffer suspension, a Bang & Olufsen stereo and four-way lumbar supports for the seats. You can also opt for either a fancy Alubeam Silver paint finish that's supposed to look like liquid, or a classy matt paint finish.
Don't expect any discounts, though.
