SLR was competition to cars like Ferrari Enzo and Carrera GT, SLS is in class with Ferrari 458 Italia. Price is also similar, and just look at Ferrari, 458 is almost fast as Enzo, but much cheaper. That's evolution...

Take the SlS performance back to 2003 and then you'll understand the price difference. 7 years in the automotive business is a very long time, and even more when we're talking about super-cars. Besides, how many of you could use even 75% of it's capabilities? I don'r understand the complaints. The SlR in relation to it's competitors price tag was terrific; E.G 1 million dollar Enzo.

The loyalty of the Mclaren is the major reason of the price gap.
