As if we don’t have enough reasons to buy Gran Turismo 5 as soon as it hits stores on December 29, Mercedes has given us one more.

It’s just been brought to our attention that the most eagerly-anticipated racing game ever will be featuring no less than Mercedes’ new super car, the SLS AMG Gullwing. If that doesn’t make you salivate for another three months, we don’t know what will.

The car was successfully unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show and it sure lived up to all the previous hype it was getting around the industry. The Gullwing comes with a monstrous front/mid-mounted 6.3-liter V8 engine capable of producing 571 horsepower with a top speed of well over 300 km/h. Now, we can go all day just drooling over the specs of the Gullwing and it probably still won’t be enough to contain our excitement knowing that it will be a playable car on GT 5.

Hey, it’s not like we can just head over to a local dealership and pony up a quarter of a million dollars to buy the real thing. So, we’ll settle for the next best thing. At least we’ll only have to shell out 60 bucks for that.

Very powerful car but I don’t its shape. Mercedes SLR Mclaren’s shape was much better than this.
Can anyone tell me that the new Golf GTI and Golf R will be playable cars in GT5?
