Mercedes-AMG GT S in a Twisted Fable-like Commercial [VIDEO]
Mercedes can be considered a king when it comes to craftsmanship and attention-grabbing products. Being impatient until April, 2015 when the US market launch of the new Mercedes-AMG GT S is going to take place, the automaker "took hold" of another opportunity to brag about the splendid car.
This time the creativity and originality of Mercedes-AMG can be observed in a 60-second commercial, titled "Fable" which will air during this weekend's Super Bowl. The spot is somewhat whimsical, strange, interesting and with a spin on the classic tale about the tortoise and the hare. The short video clip starts in a forest full of animals who are waiting for the race to begin. It all seems normal and as you would expect it until some of them decide to catch up with modernity and take a selfie. Another plot twist includes a game of poker and stealing of the new GT S by the tortoise. The peak of the commercial is when we hear the tortoise say "WHO'S YOUR TURTLE!?!" while the car is flying through the air. Oh, yeah, and there is the hare's girlfriend peeking out from behind the tortoise.
Set to hit the markets very soon, the automotive monster by Mercedes is fitted with a powerful twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V-8 engine matched to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission that has a transaxle design. 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S takes advantage of 503 HP and 479 lb-ft. feet of torque. This is enough to catapult the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in the screaming 3.7 seconds. The new GT S has a price tag of $130,825.
