Now this is what we’re talking about.

A week after we brought you video footage of a pretty gruesome-looking matte purple Mercedes Benz SLS AMG that was spotted in London, we’re back in these pages featuring a matte white SLS AMG that was likewise filmed in the UK with, incidentally enough, Qatari plates.

Like we said, this is what it’s all about right here.

Not that we hate the matte purple SLS AMG, that isn’t entirely true. We were fascinated by it because it came in such a unique color – the first we’ve ever seen of its kind – but if we’re to call it down the middle, well, we’re not big fans of it.

This matte white SLS AMG, on the other hand, is the personification of sexy. Clean, powerful, and eye-catching, there’s something fundamentally irresistible about a matte white finish car, let alone something that you can find on an even sexier supercar like the Mercedes SLS AMG.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I like my car always be painted with black. Hmm, but I think this car is good even on white matte, vanilla white.

It always looks great when a car is white, the only difference will be seen on the type of paint they use.

Also, are you referring to Car Magazine’s comparo of the SLS and LFA? C&D hasn’t had either car in a comparo.

I love the car, but honestly I’m not impressed with the Matte white, better if he made if black or red matte..

Man, I ain’t gonna lie, the white one looks (while decidedly upscale) strangely similar to the new Chevy Cruze. Ok, go ahead and dump on that opinion if you will, but you know it’s kinda true.
