Lapping the famous Nürburgring race track is a dream for any car enthusiast out there. Unfortunately, it is not a reality for most of us. For those that can’t make it, Mercedes AMG has unveiled an onboard video showing the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 in action on the "Grüne Hölle" (Green Hell). This is about as close as you get to whipping the SLS AMD GT3 through the Green Hell without actually hanging onto the steering wheel. Speaking of the steering wheel, behind the wheel in this video is AMG Customer Sports coordinator, Thomas Jäger. What a job that must be…
For those of you who do not know, the SLS AMG GT3 is powered by a 6.3-liter V-8 engine — same from the standard SLS AMG – that pumps out 600 horsepower. When compared to the standard model, the GT3 version has a ton of exterior upgrades, including: front apron with a splitter, bonnet with central cooling air vent, wider front and rear wings, side skirts with cooling ducts for the rear brakes, a rear diffuser, and an adjustable rear airfoil.
