GT 5 SLS AMG Screenshots and Video
The GranTurismo 5 users will be able to experience the SLS AMG in full HD quality and virtually drive the car in high speed races on a variety of different race tracks, including the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife, while competing against other vehicles from the super sports car segment.
“For an emotionally appealing and realistic reproduction of the vehicle from different camera angles, the game designers and engineers from Polyphony Digital Inc. have digitised the new gullwing model using elaborate video scans. But it is not just the visual aspects of the game which are a delight: the in-game performance virtually matches the real performance of the SLS AMG on the race track,” the company says in a statement.
According to the official data released by the manufacturer, the SLS AMG comes equipped with an AMG 6.2l V8 powerplant that generates 571 horsepower (420 kW) at 6800 rpm and a maximum torque of 650 Nm at 4,750 rpm. It propels the 'gull-wing' from naught to sixty in 3.8 seconds, with maximum speed going as high as 315 km/h (195 mph).
Gamers are also invited to take a closer look at the new model, as it will also be on display at the Tokyo Game Show, scheduled to take place between September 24-27, 2009. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will celebrate its market launch in the spring of 2010 and sell for 177,310 euros.
