Ninco have done a pretty good job of capturing the epic nature of the SLS and the Knap yellow/white livery is interesting enough but we all know there is only one colour a silver arrow should be painted. I'm not sure about the below photo which looks a little alarming given how twisted the car body/rear wing look, I think we'll give Ninco the benefit of the doubt as I've never seen with level of defect in a Ninco I own.
This from Wikipedia: 'The SLS AMG GT3 is a race car version of SLS AMG Coupé, developed in accordance with the GT3 regulations of the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile).
It includes a sequential six-speed racing transmission with steering wheel shift paddles, an integrated multi-disc locking differential and traction control, adjustment facilities for the springs and shock absorbers, the suspension height, the stabilisers, the track width and camber; rack-and-pinion steering with a more direct ratio and servo assistance, AMG 18-inch light-alloy wheels, a steel racing braking system with racing ABS, seat shell (individually foam-padded, features the HANS (Head and Neck Support) system) located in a high-strength carbon-fibre (CFRP) safety cell, a six-point seat belt, optimised fire extinguisher system, central display positioned within the driver's field of vision.
Development of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 testing programme began on Lausitz Eurospeedway in June 2010. The vehicle was unveiled in 2010 New York International Auto Show and Puebla in Mexico, and later a silver version of the car was unveiled in 2010 Pebble Beach Concourse D'elegance. The vehicle went on sale for €334,000 (not incl. VAT) or €397,460 (incl. 19% VAT), only in left-hand drive configuration. Deliveries began in February 2011, following homologation by the FIA in accordance with the GT3 regulations.'
