It’s not everyday that you get to take a 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG out for a spin—literally, that is. That, however, is exactly what some people at Car and Driver were up to. In this video, they hopped in the SLS AMG and took it and its 6.2 liter AMG V8 engine out to kick some dust up in the air via some well-executed donuts.
But wait, there’s more! These lucky dudes didn’t just do any conservative, run-of-the-mill donuts; they did it while the gullwing doors were opened up. While there really isn’t any deep meaning behind all of it, perhaps the guys were just trying to spice up the stunts a little bit. Well, we sure hope that the dust didn’t get inside the SLS AMG’s fine interiors. It’s going to be a pain to clean all that up after.
Of course, when you skip ahead to the part where the SLS AMG drives off to fade, it’s apparent that it looks none the worse for wear. Wonder how those rear tires fared, though. Still, it got to showcase a nice growling sound and a nice cloud of dust.
What about you? If you got a chance to get behind the wheel of a 2010 SLS AMG, would you also take it for a wild spin?
