Evo Crashes Mercedes SLS GT3

Motoring magazine Evo was given the chance to drive the new Mercedes SLS AMG, but guess what? They crashed it.

The opening event of the 2011 season at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (AIA) near Portimão saw numerous battles in the GT1 class, and numerous ‘racing incidents’, but much of the action took place in the first corner of the first lap.

Cars spun, drivers went wide eyed, and a Ferrari bonnet hit the windscreen of the SLS GT3, driven by Roger Green.

But all in all, the race made excellent viewing. Shame £100,000 worth of damage was done to the brand new SLS.
