The long-awaited novelty appeared on the Russian market – the Mercedes-Benz SL of the new generation. At the first opportunity, we arranged the newest coiler of the rhodster of a comprehensive check for “survival”
In theory, there should be two separate material: one about restyling the usual Rhodster “SL”, another – about its new “High-Perfomance”, or, if using Russian Slang, “charged” version “SL63 AMG”. Reality has made its amendments – the usual “Mercedes-Benz SL” modestly moved to the side, it was worth it, following the zigzags of mountain serpentine, to climb the clouds several times and go down at the wheel of the sports modification. Sorry, the usual “SL”, but your collected from the AMG family is a car from a completely different life, which is also difficult to get to how to dive up to heaven.
Honestly, I was frankly ashamed. California, purest air, friendly people who are slowly defiling on the suburbs of CAN-Francisco on silent benzoelectric “Toyota Prius”. And here, in this blessed paradise, I appear at the tuning air, roaring, whistling bouncer at the start of the aliel tires from hell.
As for the whole day I did not get a pretty police order – I do not know. Although the patrol cars then hung on my tail. Not because of the amoral behavior of the driver, rather due to the causing type of my car. After all, “Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series” with its exorbitantly enhanced crossing arches, pressed against the ground with a giant air intakes and crawling out of the trunk with anti-cracks has little common not that with the usual roadster “SL”, but even with his “charged” Version “SL65 AMG”.
And what are you, actually expected – how – in no way we have the most powerful car brand “Mercedes-Benz”.
