Mercedes AMG SLC 43 REVIEW POV Test Drive by AutoTopNL

PLS BE ADVISED THAT THIS VIDEO MIGHT WILL MAKE YOU DIZZY!!!! because he uses a forehead Cam.

Auto-Top is an honest and pure car filming and testing company. We're not interested in eco & green (unless it's like, really superfast). Screaming exhausts, whining superchargers and blowing turbo's is what we want to hear! We review all sorts of performance cars. In the different playlists you can enjoy exhaust sounds, acceleration tests (0-100, 0-200) with launch control, onboard cams and the revving sound of each car. Exotic cars, hot hatches, power sedans. We have it all!

Any word on the 2018? Almost September. I'd imagine very little change.

Dizzy, I should say so. A very poor effort, I'm sure a child could have done better.

........but the actual driving sessions is excellent & it's where the head cam works best, effectively putting you in the driving seat ( where I'd like to be please. )

AMG is not an SLK - wrong area.

Well didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know about this car but hey ho!
I think these cars could be a lot of fun as the reviewer found and I’d go as far to say I might even buy one some day despite the “not a proper AMG” image that it has.

Something I dislike about this kind of review is the fact that they usually have a massively specified car with many of the expensive options fitted.
At no point do they explicitly point out that these great options are just that! It is misleading to the uneducated buyer that might think all these toys come as standard!

I expect a lot of this stems from the fact that the reviewers don’t know and don’t care about what’s standard and what are options.

The reviewer in this case moaned a fair bit about the interior being dated. He only compared it to the recently face lifted C class.

By recent Mercedes standards the interior is dated but it’s still a fabulous space to be! Especially when you compare it to other cars on the market, even some of the most recent offerings.
