Video of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 in Florida

There's Web video of the SLS AMG GT3 at the Amelia Island Concours D'Elegance in Florida.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 not only showed up at the Amelia Island Concours D'Elegance in Jacksonville, Fla., but Mercedes-Benz Assistant Product Manager William Vetter took a few minutes to host a video walk-around of the race car.

The video shows the race car's features, from the lowered, lightweight carbon fiber body to the features on the steering wheel, from the gear-shift paddles to the button you can push to take a sip of whatever beverage you've got squirreled away.

There are other cool features such as a center console button that literally blows the doors off the body if the car happens to flip over in an accident, and a red cord that pokes out of the front grille to allow for towing.

Watch the video to the end to listen to that great AMG V-8 sound.
