Ultimate Factories - Mercedes SLS AMG
It seemed like it was only a few days ago when the new season of National Geographic’s Ultimate Factories began. Now, we’re on our fourth episode with only a couple more left.
It’s bittersweet, yeah, but we can only feel bad for so long. After all, this week’s episode is quite a doozy with the crew over at NGC heading over to Stuttgart, Germany to pay a visit to Mercedes-Benz and the factory where it’s assembling their resident supercar, the SLS AMG.
Unlike the Dodge Viper, which was hand-built from the ground up, the Mercedes SLS AMG was built using a factory full of computers, all of which work together to build the fastest ever Mercedes. For a car that has a top speed of just a shade under 200 mph – 197 mph, to be exact – the SLS AMG is the personification of a car that blends state-of-the-art engineering with a brand that’s rooted with deep traces in racing history.
The Mercedes 300 SL, the car that served as the SLS AMG’s inspiration, would be so proud.
Part 2 of the trailer can be found after the jump.
