Here's a quick video of a race between the two cars filmed at a recent airport runway rental I organized:

Having driven both, I didn't think that would be close. Once traction wasn't the limiting factor, it wasn't.

Why anyone felt the need to put an SLS up against a 12C is beyond me. What is next, a Fiat 500?

Having both I just can'tbsee the difference being that big. An SLS is really a great car.

Why is it so unheard of? They are pretty comparable and we were having fun all day at the runway running different cars against each other. It wasn't a dick measuring contest or a scientific test, we were just having fun.

And yes, there was an Abarth Fiat there as well. :p:p

Ahhh, 'fun' you say.

That's confused him.

The SLS sounds like screaming thunder. I would own one just to start it and rev it.........but I guess it would go around corners as well:eek:

I really like the SLS - wouldn't mind a black series. :)
Test drove the SLS AMG GT - was not impressed, felt like my C63 Black Series. The SLS Black Series on the other hand, could be a different story but I'm not convinced it's THAT much better than the SLS GT.

Well why don't you set up a race against the Abarth, "just for fun." :cool:

wow,that little 500 sure stuffed the gtr in reverse :d
Hahahaha... :D

Gotta be mindful that the Abarth might be the highest common denominator in the community amongst 12C owners, a good many have both! :p

Bah .. .you'd be impressed with mine I'm sure. Of course it's not stock anymore :)

They achieved 750 instead with some tweaking. The engine still has a lot more but the gearbox is a problem

Sorry but just can't get my head around the styling. It looks awkward from so many different angles.
Are you referring to the "Black Series?" I actually like the styling, just not the expected MSRP of $370,000.

The 2010 Black series are all over the place, and have depreciated down to around $200 - $220k here. That car really needed something more than the old 5 speed tranny.
