Expert Quotes:

The SLS AMG roadster adds a three-layer power-folding soft top, a removable wind deflector and AirScarf, a feature that gently blows warm air from the seatbacks.
Edmunds

Speaking of pricey options, this car's 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system rings in at a staggering $6,400, but it's the aforementioned AMG Performance Media ($2,500) that is a must-have for any enthusiast.
Autoblog

In its narrow focus, raw manners, and chassis neutrality, the SLS AMG Black Series abandons all references to every other car wearing the three-pointed star.
Car and Driver

A Black Series-specific CFRP (carbon-fiber reinforced plastic) front splitter, chiseled side sills, and carved-out rear diffuser optimize airflow around the car.
Motor Trend


The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT and Black Series offer carefully selected sets of features, ensuring an experience befitting the Mercedes-Benz and AMG brands, but without overburdening the car with heavy, extraneous equipment.

There aren't any hot-stone massage seats, for example, but all models get standard leather upholstery (available in a beautifully stitched quilted pattern as an upgrade); COMAND infotainment with the center-mounted control knob; automatic climate control; heated power seats; power tilt/telescope steering wheel; rear parking sensors; a rearview camera; blind-spot monitoring; cruise control; and an AM/FM/DVD satellite radio system.

There aren't many options available, but what is offered tends to push the feature set further into luxury territory rather than upgrading the SLS AMG GT's sporting credentials, with one notable exception: the AMG Performance Media system.

While it doesn't make the car any faster, it might improve the driver. The AMG Performance Media system logs and displays performance metrics such as horsepower, torque, accelerator position, lateral and linear acceleration, braking performance, 0-60-mph times, quarter-mile times, and lap times. The system is activated by an AMG button in the center console, and controlled through the COMAND center.

On the other end of the options list sits the designo appearance and materials upgrades, which includes premium leather with beautiful hand-stitching among other upgrades. A Bang & Olufsen surround-sound audio system upgrades the listening experience, with a total of 11 speakers and 1,000 watts of output, including two 250-watt subwoofers and illuminated 50-watt tweeters mounted in the dash.

Conclusion

Well-equipped in base form, the 2014 SLS AMG GT offers few upgrades, but the designo interior is a must-see add-on.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
