Originally designed for the video game, the Jeff Halverson creation is based on the 2014 SLS AMG GT.
With only five to be built, the Mercedes Benz Gran Turismois about as rare as the people who can afford it. The 8-cylinder carbon fiberbeauty will sport a custom exhaust, chrome paint job and a retractable rearspoiler. It will also get custom forged wheels by ADV.1. The carbon fibermaterial used for the car’s body will allow it to reduce the weight of the productionSLS AM GT by 200 lbs, and interiors will be designed to customer specs.
Listed on the James Edition luxury marketplace, the GranTurismo’s five units will be divided between the Middle East (2), Europe (2)and the US (1). The original display model was shown by Mercedes at the LA andTokyo auto shows, and while they were designed as static scale models, were not earmarked for production. But JeffHalverson didn't let that get in his way: he went along and built five of these video game super-cars. As three of them have already beensold, we expect a Black Friday Walmart-style riot to secure the last twoorders.
