Expert Quotes:

Call it angry, luxurious, fast, striking, or timeless. Just don’t try to call it a true GT.
Car and Driver

Despite losing its signature roof-hinged doors, the SLS Roadster still makes quite an entrance wherever it goes, and doing so with the top down makes driving the car even more enjoyable.
Autoblog

And, let's face it, as sleek and handsome as this car is, it is most assuredly a monster.
Jalopnik

With so few ever seen in the wild and nearly each personalized to an owner's tastes, every public sighting becomes a finger-pointing, gob-smacking occasion in itself. "Gullwing!"
Edmunds

The cabin wears nothing but black and red Alcantara and leather and has just enough civilian amenities (airbags, three-point belts, a stereo) for it to appease DOT lawyers.
Motor Trend

The gullwinged Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupe has, perhaps, the stronger tie to history--and may be the more coveted on the concours lawn in a half-century's time--but the for our money, the SLS Roadster is the more elegant choice, gaining a long and lean profile as it loses its roof.

Whichever form of the SLS AMG you choose (GT, GT Roadster, or Black Series), the basic proportions are the same: an almost impossibly long hood, low-slung stance, rearward cabin, and exceptionally short rear end, all hunkered over a wide stance and masculine, aggressive cues at each end.

In the Black Series, those aggressive cues tend toward the racing end of the spectrum, with canards up front and a wing out back to balance aerodynamic loads--and nod toward the SLS AMG GT3 racing car. The SLS AMG GT Coupe is rounder, smoother, and simpler, but the Roadster's loss of the gullwings gives it the gift of less awkward proportions around the passenger area, leaving a stunningly long, lean, and low profile that's as ballistic as it is beautiful.

Inside, all versions of the SLS AMG offer modern Mercedes-Benz luxury: throne-like seats, a well-formed and comfortable steering wheel, high-tech gauges and displays, combining to form a modern and yet old-world interpretation of luxury, sport, and refinement.

Conclusion

Unique gullwings on the SLS AMG GT coupe give way to a stylish, sleek form in the Roadster, while the Black Series is pure track fury.

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.
