When you're the brand ambassador for a major car manufacturer, doors naturally open for you. If you're Roger Federer, arguably the greatest tennis player of all time and the endorser of Mercedes-Benz USA, one of those doors belong to the SLS AMG Roadster.

It was obviously a case of love at first sight as Federer called it "a seriously cool car" before he got into it and reveled at the sound of the engine.

We imagine Federer received his own SLS AMG Roadster for doing the commercial spot.
