The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Is the Forgotten Mercedes Supercar

Doug DeMuro

631K visualizzazioni93

    The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is a special high-performance supercar -- but it's the "forgotten" supercar of the Mercedes-Benz world. Today I'm reviewing the SLS and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the SLS Roadster. Then I'm going to get it out on the road and drive the SLS Roadster.

      Awesome car, even after a few years

    2. DolanThe_ Facc

      i dont like the roadster version of this car but its still my dream car

    3. Toni Stoned

      Design not distinctive to other supercars? If you see one in nature, you will turn your head like an owl. Without feeling bad like looking behind a drug dealer. This one is a class on its own.

    4. A Simpleton

      "Cars won't sound like this going forward." It won't be long before we eliminate the joy in everything, and everyone will complain about depression and anxiety. Actually, that's already happening.

      Doug the type of guy to call his first child a «entry-level»

    6. AD TV

      I'm already feeling old whenever he says "from this era" as it was just a few years ago!

    7. Gosta

      An old man i know had one of these cars, he sold it for 20k before it got rare thinking it had no value. And well yeah....

    8. superluig164

      8:25 They also gave these same parking sensors to Chrysler when they were still together, my 06 Chrysler 300C has them as well, although, only in back, but it's the exact same module and system.

    9. Neclar

      Do a 🦎 review !!!

    10. Tyrus Smedes

      I don't know who could look at an SLS and say it doesn't look like a supercar or special enough. Its gorgeous.

    11. Luis Rosales

      Every cars and bids ad reminds me of Tmartn and his CSGO lotto days 😂😂

    12. Luis Rosales

      Should be a V10

    13. Gérard Cousineau

      Doug you forgot to mention the built in oil gauge pressure.

    14. Tristan Carver

      It’s a Chrysler.....

    15. lone Ione

      13:09 pocket for storing the wind deflector?

    16. Павленко Олексій

      Did you heard something about black edition?) What refers to the glove compartment handle

    17. Cosma Raul Lobo

      I have the similar steering wheel in my Mercedes.....Sprinter....😂

    18. Saul Espino

      This is one of the only cars that looks better with a roof .

    19. Roger Skagerström

      No Doug. The black button for the glove coompartment isn't weird. All levers/buttons on the tan areas are black or contrastic colors in the car :P

    20. ycnexu

      How does the sound of this V8 compare to, say, a modern Mustang V8?

    21. akaNudr

      Can you review more classic cars doug? like pre 1970

    22. little123456788

      I can't believe Mercedes discontinued this wonderful motor and announced that the new C63 "AMG" will only come with a soyboy 4-cylinder shitbox.

    23. Carlin

      Work of art

    24. Sweet .Ninja

      Idk about this coupe situation. This one looks better in my opinion, a little cheaper, i don't give a f about the doors, the rear windows looks weird on the coupe. If i had to buy one, it would be this one for sure

    25. Gregory Timmons

      If they are going to accommodate smokers to the point that they have an area where you hold your lit smoke why not have a gentle smoke suction feature to expell the smoke? Black glovebox latch so it stays clean looking and so old people can find it. What ever happened to M.B. being the conservative company? The one that didn't cater to the bling and flash styling fads that become dated. Huh Doug?

    26. FireLordCanti

      The SLS is one of my dream cars. I honestly like it better than the Mercedes GTR.

    27. The 3 amigos Amigos

      The SLS is one of my favorite cars

    28. DefyYourLogic

      It's insane how much mercedes interiors have evolved in 10 years. A base A class basically has interior as good or better than this car.

    29. Mler

      Is nice

    30. kolorki4

      In saab 9-3 you have 2 liters but on trunk you have 1.8t badge So nothing new in cars history to have different badge

    31. That Informative Guy

      Typical Benz- way over priced only to have plastic on the infotainment panel.😂 Still love this Benz (and this is the only one I love lol)

    32. Erik

      Doug DeMuro: "I actually think this looks better than the regular SLS." Also Doug DeMuro: "SLS Roadster gets a 7 for styling, regular SLS gets an 8."

    33. Birki gts

      God this car is beautiful.

    34. 3xoticG4m3r

      How can the sls have better handling than this? They are practically the same car

      1. No


    35. William Handy

      Heater to blow on your neck so you can keep your hood down in the cold weather Translate: allows you to be a complete douchebag in all elements

    36. Travis Hartley


    37. Antonis Petrou

      I love the sound. And yes.... every engine produces its own music...

    38. Aleksandar Aleksic

      In Europe SLS was considered too flashy, too much showing off, you can see Clarksons review and what I'm talking about. We know our cars and Mercedes especially, so no one here would mistake it for other Mercedes, at least no one interested in cars. But that kind of people buys supercars. For me, it is one of the most beautiful modern cars and true Merc.

    39. Florian Walter

      If you want to join more sound experience of the GT Roadster: (some Hotlaps at Hockenheimring coming soon....)

    40. 🌙

      fun fact; amg stands for "aufecht, melcher, and großaspach." they are the names of three of the most significant engineers in mercedes' history.

    41. Sky Blue

      The keyfob has a battery, therefore car can start with key in the pocket. When battery dies in the keyfob, car could be started with the transponder key inserted into keyhole. Keyfob also has regular mechanical key hidden in it.

    42. DoubleDeckerAnton

      The 'gullwing doors' make it look very special.

    43. gyrosphinx

      The SLS is probably one of the most gorgeous cars ever made. It looks so damn good.

    44. costa _

      The SlS is one of the best looking Mercedes cars

    45. rayane maachou

      Doug has the perfect videos to eat to

    46. Nachiketa Roy Soni

      just now i saw it's ad for driving upside down in a tunnel!

    47. Zachariah Connor

      NO ONE, and I mean no one, distorts their mic during the driving part like DADDY DOUG

    48. Blue Whale Boy 2002

      I can feel the engine just by hearing the sounds.

    49. Isak s

      fun fact, the convertible cost roughly the same as the coupé in sweden where i live. right now is the cheapest sls a coupé closely followed by a convertible which is just a tad cheaper than another coupé and yes, you are right. top down gives you more sound, but the sound is plenty enough in the coupé with the added benifit that it is nicer on longer drives. and for the people who wonder, i'm no fan of a convertible, it is because they weigh more, are less stiff, have more wind noise when the top is up and I personally think they don't look as good with the top down as a coupé does. but that is just me so if you love your convertible is that awesome! all that matters is that you love your own car

    50. Clayton Mathis

      I like it when Doug describes cars and bids as an "online" "website"

    51. Andrej Destradi

      ufff very nice car Doug end big ciao fratello bye bye

    52. Dan J

      The key for this car is ridiculous! My 2010 C250 comes with the same key 🙄

    53. Alexander Watson

      You buy a Sprinter Van! You get that key 😂

    54. BaTtl3fR3aKk2o

      $NOK to the moon 💎🙌🚀🚀🚀🌝

      Doug the type of guy to moan repeatedly while driving

      10:01 Tesla Model X in the background Edit:At least the model X has doors that open upwards 😂😂

    57. Punarbasu Dash

      The moment when Doug said, "Cars going forward aren't going to sound this good" it just hit deep.

    58. Kevs2good

      Shift light comes standard on $25k civic Si 😎

    59. Rowdy Hinds


    60. BH London

      I always thought the steering wheel looked really out of place on this car - like they took it from a B Class or something

      1. Stefan

        True. mine from my A Class looks sportier. But thats from 2016 to be fair.

    61. BrenGamer

      lllllong front end

    62. bidzej86

      I live near Stuttgart and there is such an SLS AMG nearby. It's parked outside all year, because its garage is used as a storage full of useless stuff #justgermanthings 🇩🇪

    63. FunYoKaBunYo

      Just look like an expensive cross fire to me just my opinion. Remember Chrysler n Mercedes was once partners....dont hate the truth.

    64. Illunworth

      One of the only cars that might be better as a convertible

    65. PainAndMurphy

      Would probably have painted this one in some dark color (black?) while leaving some line\s all across the center or something in the original red

    66. vreauLED Online


    67. IMPLNTD_KiD

      Yo who says its is forgotten The mercedes benz sls amg is the living legend

    68. The Aleman

      "A Mercedes that steers" Bertha Benz is frowning upon you, Doug.

    69. Josh Mills

      Oh god nowi have to put up with cars and bids adds as well. Bad move doug.

    70. HittingTax26

      Glorified viper.

    71. Robert Smith

      While the gullwing doors are pretty cool, if you lived in California the convertible would probably be the best choice.

    72. John's Projects


    73. big dicc company Breadmaker

      Never seen this car before!

    74. Brent Cizek

      My friend just purchased this vehicle and I'm so excited to sit in a vehicle Doug has reviewed lol.

    75. Nightbane

      Those N/A Downshifts will grow you a beard. You see that part where doug grabbed his face on those down shifts? He could feel a viking sized beard coming in.

    76. YouTuber Analyst

      Man I really miss old cars. All these new cars with their crap screens and turbo crap engines

    77. Trainy

      That visor with holes is rather bizarre

    78. Illunworth

      Petition to make a Cars & Bids museum

    79. Hermann Froh

      This is one of the best engines of all times. No turbo non-sense. There was just one reason these kind of naturally aspirated engines with high rpm capability were not build anymore: Fuel consumption and emission ratings (more non-sense).

    80. Ben Rothschild

      When Clarkson reviewed the coupe version of this car he said the convertible would be better bc the doors were an inconvenience.

    81. Sunset Fear - Music


    82. Дима Чибизов

      Mercedes decided to make such huge hood just to put the engine inside the wheelbase for better handling on track

    83. Ray Rivera

      Definitely I’m a fan

    84. chris p

      So the “Bluetooth telephony” was not limited to the Metris.

    85. C S

      What do you mean by "Forgotten"??? It's still one of the most legendary Mercedes and lots of people loved it

    86. ShuckingNerds

      doug demero giving Doug scores is like an English teacher. They talk about how good it is and at the end they shit on u

      1. Robert Smith

        Yes, that annoys me. He also compares 80’s cars acceleration to today so if it doesn’t go 0-60 in 2.9 seconds it gets a bad score. I think he gave the Mk 4 Supra twin turbo like a 4 or 5 out of 10

    87. 981porsche

      @Doug DeMuro 13:30, The “looong front end” isn’t just for looks; it’s so they could put the engine behind the front axle, thus making it a mid-engine car. And the engine is not near the middle for “weight distribution” (although it would make that a little easier); it is there because it gives the car a lower polar moment of inertia-a physics thing that means things turn easier when the weight is closer to the middle.

    88. Andrew Spar

      cite ( "...before my current format." - well, the time before "your current format" sported some cool pastimes (offroading, overlanding the Aston Martin, dumping the PT Cruiser, ...), which caused me to subscribe. I miss those aspects, although I suppose (and would fully understand), that you are putting your coins on maximum viewer reach with regular standardized reviews instead of those great episodes. I'd rather see another offroading or Humvee episode, than the absolutely most-expensive Bugatti (which I also like!). It just seems that "my current format" is narrowed down to very streamlined car reviews. Maybe there is an option on your second channel?

    89. Adryan Stamylas


    90. Артем Прохоров-Лукин

      This car is basically German Dodge Viper))

    91. thex2thaz

      Doug, the holes in the sun visors are so that you can see the light when you come to a stop. So you don’t have to keep ducking down to see when it turns green

    92. Cactus Rider

      Very cool car too bad it's driven so little as to increase the likelihood of high maintenance. If it finds an actual driver vs museum curator haha.

    93. D3aTHMaGNeTiC

      This SLS' s value just increased for 250k after Doug's review...

    94. MisterBrown

      The market seems to prefer the doors. No shit? It fucking GULLWING DOOOOOOORS!!!!

    95. SpaceX Tesla Roadster- Gaming and More

      Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster

      In their defense it’s a 6.2 1/2

    97. Matthew Doye

      The most beautiful of any Mercedes in the last forty years.
