Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster was voted best cabriolet while the coupe version won in the category of best super sports car. These two vehicles carry forth their last year’s wins to be declared winners once again by over 110,000 readers of Auto Zeitung magazine who voted for their best vehicles in these two categories.
Following success of cabriolet and coupe, Mercedes Benz also won Quality Trophy 2012 for best quality and dependability and received their awards at a special ceremony which was well attended by prominent personalities. This win is fourth consecutive win for the coupe while SLS Roadster has won the award for second time in cabriolet segment of over €30,000.
What exactly contributed to this accolade is worthy of mention. It is a combination of SLS Roadster’s high tech aluminum body, its 6.3 liter V8 front mid engine which produces 420 kW power, seven speed dual clutch transmission and sport suspension which have all come together to ensure high level of performance while external design and internal comforts cannot be overlooked. Points were also in favor of the Roadster and Coupe due to their distinct style mirroring the 300SL of the 1950s.
Awarding the Quality Trophy 2012 to Mercedes Benz is due to its high quality and unsurpassed dependability and is based on results of 8 million general technical inspections conducted by Auto Zeitung magazine and Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung together.
