VIDEO: Dan Neil drives a toaster

Dan Neil, LA Times

Like me, you have probably never heard of Dan Neil either. That aside, here he gets to do something I’m sure many AUSmotive readers would love to be do—drive the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG ‘Gullwing’.

The clip is short and to the point. On the surface, at least, Neil does a competent job of giving a good intro to the new supercar. Perhaps all it really needed was footage of some more spirited driving. I guess we will have to wait for Clarkson to see that.

You can watch Dan’s clip after the break. Also included is some crash footage which shows the explosive doors Neil refers to in his review.
