Straight pimpin’ son. That’s what you’ll say as you roll this mean machine off the lot. Set to ship in late 2011, Mercedes’ SLG AMG Roadster gets a few nips and tucks, but maintains its awe-inspiring sexiness. Dropped are the gull-wing doors while Mercedes has added a soft top, resulting in a bit more weight (88 pounds to be exact). That hasn’t hampered its 0 to 100km/h speed of 3.8 seconds. Topping out at an electronically limited speed of 197 mph, the SLS AMG packs a 6.3-liter V-8. Oh look, and it’s only $279k US. Will that be cash, check or charge?
