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.

        people forget that tiny little fact that it was supposed to be the next viper but benz liked it so much they made a tribute to the 500 gullwing instead. wow........ kinda ****** up . good performance but not a total benz imo.

      Looks way better than the hardtop gull wing version w/that Honda Del Sol C-pillar. But headlights still suk and pay no homage to the original 300SL. $500k, I'd get me a new Aventador and just get a SL65 for da wife that I can drive whenever if I really wanted a Merc roadster to drive.

      Actually the chassis for the sls was supposed to be the next viper. But merc decided that it belonged to them. Nice of them taking credit for an american chassis. Thats the reason we don't have a next gen viper yet. Leno is entertaining as always. ASK the ACR guys about the chassis they know far more than amg about it. :)

      I didn't watch the video but did he go crazy? If not, you tried to re-purpose a very well known idiom very poorly.
