Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 Gets The Video Treatment


You will never be able to buy one off the showroom floor, but that shouldn't stop you from drooling over the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, a race version of Mercedes' most extreme sports car.

At a sticker price of $430,000, the GT3 version is the psychotic sibling of the standard car, and only a shadow of a similarity remains. The necessary add-ons like a rear wing, center-lock wheels, widened carbon fiber bodywork and all the safety equipment needed to go racing are in place, not to mention a new 6-speed sequential gearbox and a cool air-jack system that negates the need for a hand operated unit.

The video doesn't show too much of the car's capabilities, but we do get some great audio of the SLS AMG's NASCAR-like exhaust note. Expect to see this at racetracks far and wide, but never bearing a license plate.

Just did last week the AMG Academy basic training. Got to drive some great cars but the frosting on the cake was driving the SLS AMG for 5 laps around the Road Atlanta track.

I just hope they are competitive in AMLS when they finally join in.
