OMG the SLS in red looks super hot . And the rear of the car looks massive. Would have preferred the seats in a diffferent color.

I loved the greenish yellow color with which it was on display in the Delhi autoshow.
But neverthless brilliant looking car.

3 cars for Bombay, including the White one.

25 cars have been ordered for India and 6 cars already Delivered or being Delivered this month. The car comes to 3 cr on road, which i call steep as this shares the same heart as the SL63 AMG, 50 lakhs more just for the body.

Oh god that is a gorgeous car!

Seeing it in posters never quite justice as actually seeing an amateur camera capturing it through its pokey lens

Future classic!

I was so very wrong about this shade not suiting the car! It could really give Ferraris a complex! Not bad for a Mercedes, really! And look at it, it just reeks of presence and aura!

But you know what, I'd still take it in silver. With those exact-same interiors! Silver with contrasting red interiors harks back to the early 300SL. I just wish Mercedes had given this car wired-wheels to complete the retro-look!

Awesome car nevertheless!

Sorry Harshal but i am not in the liberty to disclose either the owner or the whereabouts of the car on or off the Forum. If the car is spotted somewhere then that is another thing. Owners privacy should be respected.

Hi speedy,

its ok man. i totally understand. I hope this car resides in Ahmedabad and we get to spot it on road. As most 'good' cars here are not driven as extensively as they are in other cities.

Hope for the best.

Thank.

Nothing but respect to the owner and his car, and what a car.

I was at the McDonalds (Panvel) & saw a SLS being transported (Covered) in a low bed truck towards Mumbai. Just for the information.

What a brute beaut! After seeing this car, we should change the commonly used phrase - OMG to AMG!
