Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in Gran Turismo 5 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Here at Autoblog, some of the background chatter re: Forza 3 vs. Gran Turismo 5 reaches Ford vs. Chevy levels of fervor – this blogger and our Editor-in-Chief get into it on IM fairly regularly. You see, Forza is one of few topics that gets our generally mild-mannered Neff all exercised. We usually go back and forth a bit, with Neff touting the virtues of Xbox Live and dissing the PS3 in general. The conversation usually ends after he's asked how many Xbox 360s have died on him (Editor's Note: Only one, thank you very much).

Jibber-jabber aside, one thing that's obvious to all interested parties is that that both games look great, and that car variety won't be a problem. Earlier this week, word circulated that the gull-winged Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG would be one of the cars making the GT5 roster. Today, Daimler released images of the car in-game. Spoiler alert: it looks cool. What's not cool is that Gran Turismo aficionados are likely at least six months away from the promised land. Check out the images in the gallery below, as well as the video embedded after the jump.

      I don't know why Gran Turismo insists on using front license plates on most of its cars. At least this one is less obtrusive, though.

      I'm just tired of seeing shots of gt5... how come we see every thing about the game but it isn't out yet! With all I see, what's left to do?
      It's like if someone shows you 100 pictures of their baby and then tell you its not born yet... doesn't make any sense!!! Put the game out already!

      wow, many of the segments in that video look like they were filmed in real life.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Nice!

      Am I the only one who doesn't like the way this car looks... at all!
        • 5 Years Ago
        You know what? I love the way this car looks. To me, it's one of the best looking cars I've seen lately. I just love it.

      I just wish the cars looked that good in game.

      Not a fan of the "live action" mixed with the GT5 playback. Wish it was all just the car in GT5.

        I think they were trying to show how close to real life it looks in the game.
        • 5 Years Ago
        As much as I love Gran Turismo, I think showing the real life makes the game look not as good. Maybe that is just me though.

        Regardless, I would sell one of my kidneys for a PS3, GT5, The Steering wheel and a HDTV to play it on.

        Actually, might have to do that so I can afford all of it...

      I'm sorry, but the sls just isn't a good-looking car.

      Hmm, I'm actually a little surprised at how unmuscular the SLS sounds. For reference check out the Top Gear's video of the Stirling Moss SLR. That car sounds BONKERS! Like a lion and a mosquito mating.

      On another note, I'm happy that GT5 is finally coming out. I am also a converted Forza fan but there's nothing like playing a good game of Gran Turismo and I can finally dust my Logitech off. Can't wait!!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Well I'm convinced, buying GT5 now
        • 5 Years Ago
        Don't get too excited Jorge, the vapor is finally turning into real water but still could turn back to vapor again.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Its available in Japan in March.... if we are lucky!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        And there's no need to wait, since the PS3 is region free. I pre-ordered mine with my importer today.

      Of course you meant the title to say, "Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG looks ill proportioned and inelegant in Gran Turismo 5, too [w/VIDEO]."
      • 5 Years Ago
      Enough with the damn videos. RELEASE THE GAME ALREADY! This is getting downright embarrassing.
