Video: Mercedes-Benz AMG cracks a funny with Xmas wishes

Who said the Germans don’t have a sense of humour? Mercedes-Benz’s performance folk at AMG have just released a rather funny video as a way of sending out Christmas wishes.

We won’t ruin it on you, however, we will tell you the video involves a new SLS AMG GT3 race car and a race track. It also involves revving the SLS very high and getting it very hot.

The SLS GT3 is based on the SLS AMG road car, only it features a completely stripped out interior, vast aerodynamic revisions to aid high-speed racing, and a hand-built 6.3-litre naturally aspirated AMG V8.

We’re sure there will be quite a few more Christmas videos sent out over the next week, so we’ll keep you updated with the interesting and funny ones.
