Regardless of the frequency, our pulse still races every time we fire up a ten-cylinder engine. It's not just the unique sound or the warbled vibration that gets the blood flowing – it's the anticipation. Whether the badge says Gallardo, Viper or M5, a V10 under the hood promises intoxicating power and frenzied excitement.
Already powerful, the 5.7-liter has been tuned to extract the maximum amount of torque from the engine with the inclusion of a specially calibrated engine controller. The controller matches maximum engine power and transmission shifting to the differential for the 2011 Dodge Charger Mopar.
In creating a roadster version of the SLS AMG, Mercedes-Benz had to do away with the car’s signature gullwing doors, instead fitting regular old conventional doors. The resulting car is as delightful as the gullwing version, but some people worried that ditching the doors would mean the roadster would lose what is special about the SLS.
