    Post /////AMG 2011 Driving Academy

    The world-renowned driver-training program from the high-performance arm of Mercedes-Benz will be back in 2011-bigger and bolder than ever. To mark the occasion, AMG Driving Academy is offering a 20% discount to all those who register for a session before January 15, 2011.

    Since its U.S debut in 2009, The Mercedes-Benz fleet vehicles have included the E63 AMG, SL63 AMG, C63 AMG, SLK55 AMG and most recently the 563-horsepower SLS AMG. For 2011, Mercedes-Benz plans to add the 2011 CLS63 AMG and CL63 AMG. Both powered by the new hand-built 5.5 Liter AMG V8 Twin Turbo engine.

    They will just ask you to put your body parts up for sale to pay off the cars.

    Actually, you are not liable for anything you break at the academy. I attended it three times and at all three times, somebody crashed a car. The driver is not held responsible for any damages as all cars are insured Click here to enlarge

    By the way, the SLS sound a million times better in person than it does through videos and microphones. Also, the sound from inside the car is on an even higher level.

    There we go, thank you!

    Where is this place located again? I'm going to do this at some point and put the whole experience up on BenzBoost.
