I was in a mall two weeks ago and i got the shock of my life when i saw that my dream car next to Audi A8, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was on display. I was so disappointed that i don’t have my camera with me and i know that my mobile camera won’t be enough to capture the essence of the supercar so i just console myself by touching it.

Wow, i can’t describe the feeling while i was checking out the car. The design, the spectacular transmission (it’s a 7-speed double-clutch automatic!) and the door… The door alone could make you wish you were driving it with both doors open and it looks like it was flashing a victory sign as it points toward the sky. I giggled like a child when i played with the door by closing and opening it. I noticed that a handle pops out of the door when you unlocked it. A rep who was there explained to me that it has 563 horsepower and the 479 pound-feet of torque will thrust the speed from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. And he points out that you cant really drive the car with the doors opened. What a pity, i thinks it is its best feature. Anyway i can only wish for this car as its cost more than 9 million in Philippine money or $200,000… I wish i could drive it…
