At The AMG Academy, Offering The Most Exciting Spin Class
A half-dozen Mercedes-Benz SLS AMGs tear toward Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s fabled Corkscrew. It’s raining as these brutes approach the slick switchbacks. As trained, we hit the brakes hard, turn in left, pause, dive right, and off we go, another lap in automotive heaven.
Let’s be clear. Riding a Pinewood Derby special down the Corkscrew would be a blast. But for $1,595, Mercedes lets you play would-be racer for the day with these $200,000 gullwinged beauties and a slew of other tweaked products as part of the company’s AMG Driving Academy. The party is mobile, with instructors and cars — including CLS63 and E63 sedans, SL63 and SLK55 roadsters and C63 Coupe — setting up at tracks across the country.
