Mercedes Teaching Apexes and Exits to Chinese
First-ever Mercedes Race Car School in China
Mercedes is hoping to reach a rapidly growing Chinese market of approximately 20 million drivers. The race car school kicks off with basic training over a one-and-a-half day period and than ratches things up a notch with two-and-a-half days of advanced training focusing on cornering, racing line and braking points.
No pricing was announced in the Mercedes tweet, but just the ability to learn how to throw an SLS AMG into the curves is worth any price of admission. The gullwing beauty features a 6.2-liter 32-valve V-8 that spits out 563 horsepower at 6800 rpm and 479 lb-ft of torque at 4750 rpm. It absolutely grips the road.
