Auto Motor und Sport snagged some driving video of the 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG Convertible promotional prototype fleet as they continue their tour of the west coast. The convertible has a fabric power top and normal doors. [AMS]



"Normal doors" make it a big bucket of refined FAIL. Any eight-year-old car buff in the world could have given you a dozen perfectly acceptable ways of keeping the gullwing doors and adding a convertible top.

That's the problem with Mercedes, and the reason they can't be a true supercar maker. They don't have that batshit-lunacy level of creativity that Fiat, GM, Nissan and especially VW have. Maybe they need to hire more 8-yr-olds.
