Default Mercedes SLS AMG Commercial - Tunnel...

MB SLS AMG driving upside down in a tunnel. Computer generated, but of course, is it not theoretically possible (not necessarily this car...)? Anyhow, video looks great and very well done!

it's to the point that when I went to the LA Auto Show...


It did not look good no matter what angle I tried to take pics from.

So I stopped trying and moved on with life.

Technically with the right speed and aerodynamics it should be. I don't wanna be the first to find out tho...

I've said this before and I'll say it again:

If that car can actually do that, I'm gonna sell my soul to get one.

Porsche would disagree with you. This was displayed in the new Porsche museum when I visited the place.

and the sls sort of "swing" its way around the tunnel, maybe that makes it even more possible?

Sick video and although it seems I am the only one, I LOVE THE SLS. It is my new dream car...well, besides a DBS of course, but for only $200K+MB depreciation, maybe in 5 years I can have one!

Porsche's agreeing with me....

I mentioned the tunnel scene is computer generated, but is it not theoretically possible? As in, isn't it theoretically possible to actually do without using renders?
Note the position of the word "not", had it been after the word theoretically, then it would mean I was disagreeing with Porsche. But interesting display by Porsche!

According to Porsche it is theoretically possible. At the same time it could be possible with the Porsche racing car I posted because of the downforce it produces. I don't think the downforce the SLS is exposed to at high speeds is anywhere near that of this specific Porsche.
