(NY Auto Show) Mercedes SLS GT3: Eco, No – Beautiful, Definitely
Mercedes-Benz reminds us there is still fun to be had tearing around a racetrack in a beautiful and insanely expensive race car.
The point of being saturated by hybrid/eco-speak happened pretty early at this years NY Auto Show. But it only took looking back to the first reveal of the show to have a reminder that the spirit of cars can be simplified down to going fast and looking good. There are also still those occasions at auto shows where dreaming is ok.
There’s an old adage in motorsports that race cars should be designed for go and not show. Contrary to this thinking Mercedes-Benz unveiled a new beautifully designed customer race car called the SLS AMG GT3.
