The $200,000 SLS-AMG Roadster Car
No, it is not a Ferrari, a Porsche or other exotic creation. It is a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster for 2012. It acts and looks like a Great White shark ready to devour anything it comes across, and it does. The soft top and gull wing hard top both weigh in at around 3660 lbs being constructed of light weight material. Yeah, it is a totally practical car for $200,000 to run errands around in with its 14 MPG rating for city and 20 MPG for hwy. In third gear, there is not a car that will not know you are coming! Unlike a stealth bomber, it roars, with its 6.2 eight cylinder DOHC, 7 speed dual clutch configuration. Horsepower? Do you really need to know this? Okay, how about a paltry 563 hp at 6800 rpm. This will have you ripping from 0-60 mph in down under four seconds with a top speed of, fasten your seat belts, 197 mph! Still not impressed, well, how about a soft top that will raise or lower in 11 seconds? Even in third gear, you can reach over 100 mph! Ever hear of the word, Whooooosh!
Sure, it is practical, it even has a whopping 6.2 cubic feet of trunk space in the two seater, something that resembles a golf bag. What else do you need to spend $200K on?
