Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th ANNIVERSARY
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th ANNIVERSARY will always be rarer than an honourable politician.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th ANNIVERSARY will always be rarer than an honourable politician. Why? Because no more than five will emerge from the factory in Germany. This model marks Mercedes-AMG's birthday and pays homage to its racing success. This predator - its manufacturer says – is therefore “aimed at car collectors with a particular penchant for motor racing”. As such it is fast... even compared to MPs backtracking from iffy expenses claims. This gullwing racer therefore has a 6.3-litre V8 engine that propels public servants to sixty-two miles per-hour in about four seconds. Top speed is in the region of two-hundred miles per-hour. Pleasingly, Bernd Schneider – the multiple DTM champion and AMG brand ambassador - helps install SLS engines. His signature therefore appears under the bonnets and he signs the certificates of authenticity.The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th ANNIVERSARY has numerous features that make it a political heavyweight. Highlights include the carbon-fibre reinforced plastic bonnet, doors, boot lid, front/rear apron, front splitter, and rear wing. Lightweight construction is clearly the name of the game. This complements Magno Graphite Matt colouring that appears on the bodywork, wheels, and interior roll cage. The functional racing cabin further emphasis its political ambitions. This incorporates tight-fitting racing seats and a carbon-fibre dashboard and centre console. All contrasted, of course, by the silver steering wheel and six-point seat belts. “X of 5” badging completes this political package that costs a pricey €446,250. Well, running for office has always been expensive.
