Lightbulb Video: Car and Driver gets bored, does doors-up donuts in Benz SLS AMG

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Etc., Videos, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury

2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG - Click above to watch the video after the jump

To some, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a demure looking beast, but don't let the classy lines fool you. Beneath that long, elegant nose is a 6.2-liter, 563 horsepower AMG V8 that propels the top Benz to supercar status. But while the SLS can hold its own on the race track against some of the world's finest automobiles, it also has the punch to take on low-brow muscle cars at their own game.

While the folks at Car and Driver no doubt have the resources to hit the track, they instead opted to take the SLS AMG out for some donuts. We're not talking polite, single turn donuts, either. This is the kind of donut that leads to a fast trip to the tire store for some very expensive Continental ContiSportContact rubber. And just for kicks (and visual flair), the C/D gang has left its gullwing doors ajar for maximum tire smoke inhalation. Hit the jump to watch the tire-shredding action for yourself.
