SLK vs SLR who wins? That depends ... \( ^ ^ )/

I found this very rare and funny video comparing SLK and SLR roadster side by side. Both cars look so compatible and damn matching together . The SLR looks like a muscular and tough big brother while the SLK is like a gentle small little brother or sister behind it.

So SLR vs SLK who wins? Watch towards the end ... you all will be surprised ... you all have a big good laugh on the FINAL VERDICT!!!

Very funny. A few comments:

1. I felt sorry for the guy who lost the coin toss and had to wear the brown suit.

2. Neither one of these guys can drive. Watch minute 4 when SLR crosses the centre line twice and loses traction on a public road.

3. The main interviewer keeps watching cars that go by especially a mini at minute 5.

4. Spoiler alert. Evidently no matter what car you have/how much you spend the guy with a nicer tie has more fun.

5. I wouldn't let that dog (I mean the real dog) in my car no matter what was attached to the leash. Dog goes in the trunk/boot.

6. After they parted the SLR driver is so upset he crashes but is rescued by http://www.uspsa2.org/sbt.htm who show up in a tow truck.

you know Merricans, "Englisch sprechen Sie bitte". Still, I understood enough of it to get the gist. Given the choice without the price tag, I will still take the SLR.

My son just got his first SLK so I had to show him this vid so he knows not to concern himself with having the right car anymore, LOL

And yes, we were also caught by surprise in clicking the link for the SBT. Whoop, and with ****, that got forwarded

Regarding your...

#1 - concur with your assessment - that suit is blech

#2 - wouldn't dare drive my SLK on that crappy road

#3 - the Mini is more at home on the crappy road than the 2x MBs

#4 - need to refer back to #1

#5 - here are some passenger seat occupant choices.

#6 - that was a bit off the radar but still an interesting link! I'll have to visit when I have more time!
