GT5 does Merc SLS

Hot on the heels of that awesome Ferrari 458 vid, Gran Turimso 5 has done the same for the new gullwing Mercedes...

The November issue of Top Gear magazine - on sale October 7 - sees a head-to-head battle between the two biggest supercars of the year: the Ferrari 458 Italia and Mercedes SLS.

Suffice to say it's going to be one hell of a fight... and the boys at Polyphony think so too. Last week the Gran Turismo 5 team showed us their tribute to the new Ferrari... and today they've done the same job for the gullwing SLS.

It's another gorgeous video from the GT5 lads, combining in-game footage with real actual video of the SLS thrashing around a track.

Still not convinced by the looks of the big AMG? Having spent some quality time in its presence, we can happily assure you that it's a grower. Don't believe us? Watch this clip through a few times.

And no, before you ask, we still don't have a confirmed release date for GT5. We were hoping to see it just before the New Year, but the latest rumours out of Japan suggest it might be nearer March before the game appears. Sorry. We feel your pain, we really do.

Hopefully this clip will ease the withdrawal symptoms a little. Enjoy...

Now share it...
