The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
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. Did you think the previous GT-R offered unearthly performance? The 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo takes it up a notch, with some added finesse.
