Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 Techtalk

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 is so fast it can blow its own doors off! Sure they only blow off once you’ve crash and realized you can open the fancy gulling doors from upside down. So you hit the button or whatever is needed and bam, the explosives blow your doors off.

There’s other cool tech going on as well, aero, ABS brakes, FIA restrictors, built from a street car, Koni shocks(because), seat tech, dash controls, trans controls, the trick rear view mirror. This video from┬áMaro Engel of Erebus Motorsport takes us through the finer details of this monster that competes in the FIA GT3 class. Enjoy.
