• New Mercedes climatic wind tunnel controls the weather to the point it can freeze cars

      How is this for high-tech weather testing? Want to see how a car will do in a category 5 hurricane? No problem. Want to see how it will do in 150+ degree heat? Mercedes certainly does. Just look at the SLK in the photo. They even test the cars to -40 degrees Fahrenheit literally freezing them. This climate testing is all part of a new facility in Southern Germany Mercedes built to test prototypes in controlled conditions before they ever even hit the road for testing in order to anticipate and correct problems before real world situations. Yes, awesome.

        Exactly, it's amazing! The damn Mercedes wind tunnel is more technologically advanced than the entire Chrysler production plant.
