AMG Driving Academy Adds SLS AMG GT3
If you’ve thought that the AMG Driving Academy was interesting before, well now it got even more exciting with the addition of a Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 race car. This V8-powered coupe is going to be available in the most advanced skill level program, the “Masters”, a program that consist of four different stages: Experience, Warm-up, Training and Competition.
The first leg takes about three hours and features a driving session with the road version of the beautiful SLS AMG, which is then followed by an introduction and a seated “rehearsal”. After that, the lucky participants are able to drive the SLS AMG GT3 on the circuit behind a lead car. At the end, an experienced professional driver gives them a ride in the very same.
The aforementioned Experience stage is open to everyone, but in order to be accepted to the following stages, the participants have to complete race track training sessions. The Warm-up and Training are more complex and difficult and are intended to gradually familiarize the entrants with the controls of the SLS AMG GT3 and to teach them how to drive on slick racing tires.
The Competition stage is where all the fun is. This stage will open its doors at the end of next year and will consist of individual and team races, in which competitors will drive their own cars or the SLS AMG GT3 (booking prices per event start at $2070).
The first delivers of the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 will be done this month, for a base price of $461,500 or $550,500 with the German VAT included.
