This week we're celebrating the German cars in Need for Speed Most Wanted in the lead up to GamesCom. Today's it's the turn of the Mercedes SLS AMG, the flagship Benz.
The iconic doors are inspired by classic 1952 300 SL.
It¹ll jump from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and top out at 197 miles per hour, but it¹s not just the performance that makes this car special.
It’s the sound.
The 6.3 liter V8 delivers spectacular power and a fantastic soundtrack at any speed. Hit the gas hard and the SLS screams blue murder.
In-game it’s powerful but very well balanced, with an excellent drift. Its light weight makes it a target for heavier, more durable cars, but they’ve got to catch you first.
Here are some shots of the real thing in action, courtesy of our friends at Mercedes-Benz. And if you like this, check out the rest of our cars area right here.
