The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating Read Our Full Review Read Our Full Review
TCC's Bottom Line The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is the last of the current line, but it still promises to be a top-level super sports car. As the entry point to Ferrari ownership, the 2014 California balances performance, style, and practicality surprisingly well.
