VIDEO: Motor Trend Shootout – Mercedes AMG SLS vs Audi R8 V10 vs 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo
Ever have one of those days where nothing is going your way, and you just want God to answer one little request? This video is the antidote to one of those days. Our favorite source of high-end car porn, Top Gear, is still on sabbatical. That usually means creating a shootout by pushing our Micro Machines across the floor, resulting in burned knees and the absence of a girlfriend. But today Motor Trend has brought us all a present comparable with the finest motoring videos online.
Led by the regally-named Arthur St. Antoine, three of MT’s finest take on a Nevada highway with three of the best cars available today: The 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 V10 and Mercedes SLS AMG. The voice-overs are kept to a minimum, leaving your mind free to enjoy the sounds and sights of 1500hp ripping up the highway. To make it just a little better, the Highway Patrol shut down an epic set of curves for them. What followed was a high-speed blast into the mountains. Driving any of these cars would keep me happy for a month, but the MT guys had to pick a favorite. Make the jump to enjoy this triple-showdown, and find out which one they all wanted to drive back to Vegas.
