AMG will support its motorsport activity by also making the SLS available to customers as a turn-key GT racer

I'll tell you why this makes sense, Mercedes-Benz may decide to not build a new DTM car to the new regulations, which will come into force in 2011. Mercedes has already cut the number of cars it runs in the DTM, so a sportscar programme with the SLS AMG would make perfect sense.

The SLS looks amazing in real life, I saw it last weekend at MB World. I would definitely attend a race where the SLS competes.

Hope Merc race the SLS in GT racing, I prefer GT cars to Prototypes. Touring cars rules change all too often.
