The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is fast, fun, and luxurious, while the Black Series is in a league above; just don't expect S-Class levels of comfort and equipment. German precision and handling combines with Italian power to create a superb supercar that's also fit for daily use.
