Comparing stock and tuned is like comparing apples and bananas. What we're trying to say here is that the race isn't going to be pretty to look at for the Mercedes fans.
You guys should only focus on the fact that the SLS has a very nice red paintjob and a black interior. It looks really good under the Moscow sun, but… it loses a race.

Its rival of the day is a tuned BMW X6 M producing 760 horsepower. Aerodynamics play a big part in mile-long drag races, so the SLS still manages to win a race by a slim margin, but on the second try the uber-Bimmer smashes the rear-drive sportscar due to its superior traction off the line.
