2012 SLS AMG Roadster – Click above to watch the video after the jump

On the heels of its official unveiling, Mercedes-Benz has dropped a video of the 2012 SLS AMG Roadster in its natural habitat. Let the ogling begin. If you were floored by the still shots of the latest confection from AMG, the video will leave you gibbering lump.

Though the Roadster loses the coupe's iconic gullwing doors, it keeps its performance credentials and only gains a scant 88 pounds. Power doesn't budge, but somehow Mercedes claims the topless SLS is quicker than the coupe to 60 by one hundredth of a second. That isn't much, but quicker is quicker. To see the newest SLS in action, click past the jump.

      I like how the music makes it sound like some gift from the gods...... there are way too many other cars out there with better looks, and lots of HP (Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo) Just my opinion

      Purposeful maybe. Beauty? Stick with the Italians. Even the FF looks better.

      On a completely unrelated note, Google hits for Autoblog are up 1000% today. ...search query "topless beauty."
