Video - How Car and Driver do their tests

I first watched this a long time back and just watched it again. I did a search and didn't see it mentioned on this site, and thought it might be something others are interested in, not least because it revolves around an r172 slk 55 amg.

Given how often people (including me) cite c & d figures, it's nice to see the trouble they go to.
