Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 - Click above for high-res image gallery

That image above speaks for itself. All you really need to know is that this isn't Dubai, Russia or even Germany – it's right here in Monterey for classic car week. You can probably identify the Mercedes-Benz inside that shiny wrapper on your own, but just in case you've recently taken an amnesia-inducing blow to the head, it's the SLS AMG GT3 – the race version of the company's new gullwing sports car. There's something to be said for having a mirror with you wherever you go, but this is a bit extreme. No matter, we think it looks amazing, even if it is just a wrap and not a polished car that's been stripped of its white paint to shed precious ounces before a race. Click on any image to see our full high-res gallery.

      Yup... they are right: You can't polish a turd.

        You don't watch Mythbusters do you?

      Such a bling paint is an insult to the awesomeness of this car. Very bad taste IMO.

      Is that even safe on a sunny day?

      autoblog, if you're gonna say a car is pretty or ugly, at least be consistent about it.

      On the plus side as long as the sun is shining you'll never forget where you parked

      everyday waxing?
      I don't like fingerprints at my car.

      Its beautiful. but I hope the windows have a really dark tint on them, just imagine racing along only to have the sun bounce of the hood and into your eyes

      Like most of the current Mercedes designs, I just can't find anything to like about this car's design....especially in chrome. Maybe if I see it in person someday, I'd appreciate it.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I saw one in Miami, and it DEFINITELY looks MUCH better in person. I also imagine this chrome version would look far more striking in person, flying down the street, or pulling up at the steakhouse.

      I've tried to love the SLS, i just can't. Its typical Mercedes in trying to make a "gran tourer" automatic sports car.

      Im not saying its bad, i just can't get emotionally attached too it.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Doesn't even look real.

      Very cool.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I like this car.... I think I saw one of these a while ago.....

      it's on my list of OMG cars.

      ....I saw a CTS coupe the other day and said
      .....OMG!

      Why aren't more cars offered in Chrome? Or even gold(not gold paint)?
      The proper mix of chrome and matte black would be awesome.
