Default Mercedes SLS AMG & Aston Martin DB9

Hi there!

Here are a few pictures I took a couple of weeks ago of my DB9 & the SLS AMG. We were playing one against the other and stopped by the dunes for a short break close to sunset...:-)

Nice pics dubeee.

Did you switch seats? How was the SLS in comparison to the DB9, and in comparison to what you were expecting.

Sigh, two of the cars I admire the most! Pics are brilliant and so are the colors on the cars. Could you give a detailed review on the drive. What you liked / disliked etc?

More pics of the DB9 if you have any. Please.

yes, i picked up the sls for the day and well from the looks point of view, i was certainly not disappointed, power and the wings it's quite surprising that the side clearance required is less than that of the other vehicle! spent most of the day in the sls and then we started switching on the back roads and playing one against the other. power was no issue though it felt a bit skittish compared to the aston that sat heavily.

thank you... and the evening light is always fantastic at this particular location. will have to do a detailed report some other time. one thing though is that i still have a lower back pain as a result of the extended use of the sls. :-( for me the aston was a far more comfortable drive and i use it quite frequently.

:-) no i am not biased. its just that i've not taken any newer snaps of the aston. there were comments and petrolheads and general onlookers practically wherever i stopped so that was interesting ;-) this guy and his lady friend stopped me and after a bit of a chat insisted that i place a small indian flag on the rear of the sls!!

cheers all!
