Special Livery For Mercedes SLS GT3 At Spa

July 27, 2011 at 9:09 am

40 years after a momentous victory at the Spa-Francorchamps with the superb SEL 6.8 AMG, Mercedes is returning to the track for the 24 hours race with the decadent of the original racer, the Mercedes SLS GT3.

What makes it special is the similar livery that the SLS is wearing. The SLS AMG GT3 is being entered by the private team Black Falcon, and is visually reminiscent of the legendary racing touring car that made AMG world-famous overnight. The red paint finish, the start number 35 and the sponsor stickers keep the memory alive, and almost give the two AMG racing cars the appearance of twins.
