Mercedes-Benz is not known to put too much effort into their Super Bowl commercials in terms of hiring celebrities or devising an elaborate plan. That said, for Super Bowl XLIX they have gone and made a Hollywood-grade animation, recreating the classic fable Tortoise and the Hare.
The star of the story is not the tortoise, as you’d expect, but rather a Mercedes AMG GT. The slow and steady tortoise just happens to come across a Mercedes plant in the middle of the jungle where they are making an AMG GT, and you can guess the rest…
The Mercedes AMG GT will launch in a few months in America, starting from $130K for the 510-hp ’S’ model. The ordinary 462-hp version will be added to the range a year later, but that too will almost certainly cost over 100 grand. So if you want one of these, don’t wait for the base model in the hope to save a few grand. Get the S-model and enjoy its superior performance!
