David Coulthard Takes SLS AMG GT Around Nürburgring

F1 driver David Coulthard has become quite the spokesperson for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG model, recently catching a 178-mph golf ball in an SLS AMG Roadster model. Now Coulthard has taken the new SLS AMG GT out onto the Nürburgring GP track to see how it performs.

The German automaker’s flagship model was updated with a new GT variant featuring 583 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque out of its 6.3-liter V8 powerplant. Changes to the suspension and the increased performance allows the SLS AMG GT to deliver faster lap times, and that’s what Coulthard was out to prove.

Coulthard provides some very interesting and insightful commentary on the SLS AMG GT throughout the video, but unfortunately it takes second place to just how awesome the SLS AMG GT sounds.
