FEATURED IN PLAYSTATION GAME GRAN TURISMO®5

The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, one of the highlights of the 2009 International Motor Show (IAA)in Frankfurt/Main, will soon be delighting video game fans the world over.

The gullwing model is being featured in the latest version of the PlayStation®3 (PS3TM) game Gran Turismo®5, in which it is expected to excite gamers with its breathtaking performance.

The most exciting car for the most exciting game. In the new Gran Turismo®5 video game, exclusively for PlayStation®3, gaming fans and car enthusiasts alike will be able to enjoy an intense and interactive driving experience at the wheel of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in full HD quality thanks to an extremely realistic rendering.

Drivers of the SLS AMG can look forward to taking part in thrilling 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 will be a fantastic experience,” explains Yamauchi, who is in addition both Senior Vice President of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and President of Polyphony Digital Inc.
Gran Turismo®5

Developed by Polyphony Digital Inc. exclusively for the PlayStation® family of products, the Gran Turismo®5 series is not only one of the world’s best-selling video games, having clocked up sales of more than 52 million copies, but thanks to its impressive true-to-life detail and realistic vehicle handling it also represents the absolute benchmark among fans.

Gran Turismo®5, the series’ next iteration, is currently in development exclusively for PS3TM and latest information on Gran Turismo was unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show (24 - 27 September 2009).

SLS AMG with exceptional technology package

The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is truly exciting with its unique technology package: aluminium spaceframe bodywork with gullwing doors, AMG 6.3-litre V8 front centre engine with a maximum power of 420 kW/571 hp, 650 Nm of torque and dry sump lubrication, 7-speed double clutch transmission in a transaxle configuration, sports suspension with aluminium double wishbone axles and a kerb weight of 1620 kilograms according to the DIN standard – this combination guarantees the very highest level of driving dynamics. The ideal weight distribution of 47 to 53 percent between the front and rear axles and the low centre of gravity accentuate the distinctive sports car design. The gullwing accelerates to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and has a maximum speed, which is electronically limited, of 317 km/h. Its fuel consumption of 13.2 litres per 100 kilometres (combined) ranks it top among the competition (all values are preliminary).
