Conventional wisdom would say that challenging the laws of physics is about as futile an effort as trying to curve a bullet like in the movie Wanted. Try telling that to Mercedes-Benz. Better yet, try telling that to the SLS AMG Gullwing. Ever since Mercedes’ latest supercar was first introduced last September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the car has created the kind of buzz that’s reserved for only a handful of cars in history. And just when it seemed like we’ve seen everything there is to see with the SLS AMG Gullwing, Mercedes comes out with a video where the super car seemingly does the unimaginable: doing a full revolution inside a tunnel.
Continued after the jump.
The first thing that comes to mind is to question the legitimacy of the SLS AMG’s feat. After all, it’s not like this car came straight out of a Hollywood special-effects set. Common logic points that there must have been some kind of alteration with the video because well, cars aren’t supposed to do something like that – unless the car in question is the DeLorean from Back to the Future.
But some people seem to have come to the argument that with enough downforce on the vehicle and some pretty nifty driving, doing a tunnel revolution is plausible, if not possible. As far as we’re concerned, we find it hard to believe that the Gullwing – or any car, for that matter – is capable of pulling a stunt like a tunnel revolution successfully.
Nevertheless, whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, the video of the whole act is still pretty impressive to watch.
