Is Mercedes SLS Worthy of Gran Turismo Cover?

PS3 Informer writes:

"The 2011 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG will appear on the cover of Gran Turismo 5 when the game ships later this year. The PlayStation 3 North American box art will feature a rear view of the car with its signature gull wing doors open, inviting the player inside to take it for a spin. Sony says the Mercedes SLS AMG was "chosen from a total of nearly 1000 cars recreated down to the finest detail" to be Gran Turismo 5's cover star.

Clearly, the Mercedes SLS can hold its own against a wide variety of other very competent sports cars. But the question Gran Tursimo fans will undoubtedly be asking themselves is, 'does it belong on the cover of the world's definitive driving simulator?'"

I think it does not deserve the cover spot, for one simple reason.

While it is an expensive, exotic car, it is based on a retro model. This car is looking backwards in time, rather than forwards. Maybe they should have put an electric hybrid on the cover?!?

But i feel it looks sexy.... pretty much like a classic-modern hybrid..

you know.. like the Ford GT... or even the shelby cobra...

i personally love the concept of classic-modern look.

But the thing is, that's a niche audience for racers. When car junkies think of something with power, they think of gas engines with lots of horse power. The SLS-AMG is not only a design marvel but is a power house. I think it was a great choice.

problem is that 90% will play GT5 with assists and pad that means arcade players and normally arcade players knows nothing about cars and it's history. They know the new kid on the block and nothing else. This is an amazing car with amazing history it's like bringing Michael J back to life but the Jacksons version!

I can think of numerous questions i`d ask myself regarding GT. One of them most certainly is not "does it belong on the cover".

I don't think it does. Does anybody know it's US release?

I think it does. It might not be the best car in the game but it's one of the most saught after cars with it's mix of retro and new age design. I honestly feel pleased with the choice to go along with the SLS as the 458 is an excellent car but interms of design and tech i'd choose the SLS.
