the Isle of Man with our Rare Experiences winner. That's only part of the
story - we also made a 3D version of the film, complete with helicopters
and high-speed tracking cameras. Here's a sneak peek behind the scenes.

Panamericana im Mercedes SLS AMG: SLS Verschärft
Fazit: Am meisten begeistert am Mercedes SLS AMG die Konsequenz des
Sportwagenbaus. Das überraschendste ist jedoch, dass es sich dabei
gleichzeitig um einen wirklich guten Mercedes handelt. Er ist die
Erfüllung der AMG Black-Series Modelle, die in SLK, CLK und SL Stück für
Stück gezeigt haben, dass schnelle Mercedes nicht nur schnell geradeaus
Die Konsequenz als Sportwagen ist es, die den SLS nicht nur als Nachfolger
einer Rennlegende wie den 300 SL antreten lässt. Sondern ihn auch in eine
Reihe mit einem Ferrari 365 GTB Daytona und Jaguar E-Type stellt. Und das
lässt sich nun wirklich nicht steigern.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a front-engine, 2-seat luxury grand tourer
automobile developed by Mercedes-AMG to replace the Mercedes-Benz SLR
McLaren. The car is the first Mercedes automobile designed in-house by
AMG and is described by Mercedes-Benz as a spiritual successor to the
Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. Mercedes presented at the 2012 Paris Motor
Show an electric version of the car, named Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric
The SLS AMG will be made in at least four different versions. The first to
launch is the coupe with gullwing doors. In 2009 a Desert Gold version
debuted at the Dubai International Auto Show, in mid-2010 a FIA-GT3 racing
version. For 2011--2013 Mercedes will also be releasing a roadster (with
conventional doors and a soft top), an electric powered E-Cell version
(most likely to be a coupe), and there will be a Black Series version,
which will see its weight being reduced by as much as 300 kg (661 lb).
The SLS AMG "Blackbird" was a unique, special edition SLS AMG created by
Mercedes-Benz's Australian subsidiary specifically for the 2010 Australian
International Motor Show.
The SLS AMG Electric Drive will be powered by four electric motors with
combined ratings of 552 kW (740 hp) and 1,000 N·m (740 lb·ft). Each motor
can spin up to 13,000 rpm and weighs 45 kg (99 lb). In addition, the
transmission allows each motor to selectively drive all 4 wheels. With
this, the SLS AMG Electric Drive accelerates from standing still to 100
km/h in 3.9 seconds.
The SLS AMG Electric Drive will include a liquid-cooled 400 V lithium-ion
battery rated to 60 kWh. The 548 kg (1,210 lb) battery pack is made up of
12 modules, each comprising 72 lithium-ion cells. The system was designed
as a collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes AMG High Performance
The SLS AMG Roadster was unveiled by Mercedes-Benz via press release on May
5, 2011. It retains the same specifications, dimensions and drivetrain as
the Coupe but is a more traditional convertible with a power folding fabric
top and conventional doors. The roadster weighs only 40 kg (88 lb) more
than the original SLS AMG coupe, and the top can be raised or lowered up to
31 mph (50 km/h).
The SLS AMG is featured as the cover car for the PlayStation 3 racing game
Gran Turismo 5, and is the safety car for the Formula One seasons from 2011
The car was featured in the Top Gear Series 16 Premire, in which the three
presenters use various sport cars to drive up a part of the east coast.
Jeremy Clarkson brought along the car, praising virtually everything about
the car (although he does mention that the doors are a bit excessive. Also
in the Xbox 360 video game Forza Motorsport 4, Clarkson commented that
"This is not just the greatest car Mercedes makes; right now, I think, it's
the greatest car in the world."
The car is also used for the 2011 film Transformers: Dark of the Moon, as
the Decepticon Soundwave.
A silver version of this car features in the television series The Cape,
driven by Summer Glau in the second episode.
The SLS AMG Roadster is described by Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear as being
the best car in the world and is a huge fan of the car.
The SLS AMG Electric Drive is an upcoming electric version of the SLS AMG
planned for release in June 2013.
