Post SLS sighting in Tampa

Not sure if anyone cares, but I spotted a red SLS around the corner from my office at Cypress St and Lois Ave. Not my first choice of colors, but still a beautiful, amazing car.

Yeah, there's a red one (sold) on my dealer's showroom floor and I agree red isn't much of a color for this car.

I saw a silver one at my dealer several months ago. It was also sold and only there for a day or two until they could arrange delivery. They look great in that color.

Funny thing about them is that the actual exhaust pipes end about 2 inches in front of the "outlets" built into the rear valence.

Nice touch is that the bodywork is recessed where the Mercedes stars are mounted front and rear.

It's also the first Mercedes I've seen with "engine break-in instructions" on a sticker inside the windshield in front of the driver. Perhaps other AMGs have this, too, but haven't noticed.

It's a little funny to me that this car--with less interior space--has to be larger than an SL. It's mostly just to cover the huge tires, it seems.
