Angels Over Berlin: MEC Design Mercedes SLS [Video] [Photo Gallery]
It’s only the most awesome, awe-inspiring trailer/promo video we’ve ever seen for a tuned car. The flick was directed by Daniel Michaelis and produced under Format67.net. The excellent apocalyptic plot is narrated by Claudia Black.
Most promotional materials for tuned cars feature electronic dubstep music and flash effects, but MEC Design’s Mercedes SLS project went a completely different route. We’re not big fans of the three-piece wheels with a huge lip, but the melodic soundtrack this 6.2-liter V8 produces makes us forgive any such tuning errors.
“Not every angel is terrible. There are good angels and bad angels. One must learn to distinguish. There are angels that stand at the door of the dead. They've only come to take us home. Still we fear their company,” Grace Andreacchi says in her poem 'Angels Over Berlin' from the poem cycle 'Berlin Elegies'. How true this is when it also comes to our petrol-burning motoring companions!
