jay leno driving the sls amg roadster

Our greedy automotive journalist hands are shaking because we've yet to get seat time in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. A few lucky folks outside of the company have gotten seat time, and it seems video of their excursions serve to make our jealousy meter ping harder into its stop. This time around, it's Jay Leno that's been given quality time with the drop-top exotic. Leno may think he's the first, but someone else beat him to the punch.

To get his sloppy seconds, Leno trekked to Germany for his SLS seat time, and he's greeted by a waiting Roadster. From there, Jay heads to Affalterbach, which is home to AMG. Click past the jump to see – and hear – the beautiful Benz.
