    • 24 year old Spanish student wins a Mercedes SLS AMG in the Gran Turismo 5 competition

      Remember the story we brought you about the 15 finalists who would compete to win a real life Mercedes SLS AMG? Well, the contest is over and a 24 year old Spanish student by the name of Marco Calvo was the winner. The 15 competitors were under the instruction of former DTM driver Bern Schneider as well was David Coulthard (former Mercedes F1 driver and current DTM driver). Marco beat out the other 14 drivers and gets to take home an SLS AMG. Kids, lesson to learn is don't listen to your parents when they say playing video games does not pay off.

        If a 50 year old CEO won that would have been way cooler. A 74 year old nun would have just been beyond awesome.

        Nice, it will be awesome if you two take 2nd and 3rd positions. no need to say the 1st position belongs to me.
