Jeremy Clarkson Reviews the GT S

In his normal hilarious tone of course...

I think I know why. Behind all the racing paraphernalia and the Mercedes suede and silicone, this is a modern-day muscle car. Itís Mercís Mustang. You sense this when you drive it. The GT S feels as though thereís very little rubber in the bushes and only the smallest amount of insulation between you and the oily bits. It feels raw. Much more raw than any other Mercedes and any of the other cars that you can buy for this sort of money. It feels ó how can I put this? ó extremely exciting.

The rawness of the GT is one thing to love, something which you couldn't get out of the SLS but for majority of buyers that wont matter much unless they are the type to go to the track... then they'll really feel the rawness.

The SLS was really raw on the track I have been out twice in one and had some very big moments.

The GT is much more planted and has feel and feedback on the edge. It's in a different league.

Due to that I have a feeling SLS prices might drop with some folks ditching it for the AMG GT... and it could eventually make for a great opportunity to get an SLS once price drops down enough

Apart from the exclusivity it's not as good a car. I am not a car investor so I would stick with the GT. The SLS is still going up i price in the UK.
