AMG has decided to get into the holiday spirit by releasing a Christmas-themed video which prominently features the SLS AMG GT3.

While Germans aren't known for their sense of humor, the lighthearted clip shows the car putting in a few laps around a track while engineers convey their stress to the driver. When the driver returns to the pit, we learn why they were so concerned.

As we have previously reported, the SLS AMG GT3 has an aerodynamic body kit with a new front fascia, a ventilated hood and a carbon fiber rear wing. It is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine that is "virtually identical" to the one in the standard model. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 186 mph (300 km/h).
