This car is perfect for many reasons. We find it perfect because of 3 in particular, number 1 being that it’s a small version of a lot of people’s dream car, a Mercedes-Benz. Number 2, you can drive and control it through a mobile app. Number 3, for RC enthusiasts, it somewhat helps get your RC fix in during a long busy day. View the features about the vehicle below, and check out some photos and the article on SlashGear.
First and foremost, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is controlled using an app on your iPhone, iPad, oriPod. The car will connect your device using Bluetooth and a downloadable app that’s included along with your purchase. This setup allows you to use your device’s tilt controls to steer the car, and if you’re using an iPhone, you’ll feel force feedback as you rev the engine, which increases in intensity the faster the car is going.
While all of that is awesome, there’s one feature in particular that makes the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG RC really stick out from the crowd: music playback. You can use the app to play music from your device while you’re driving the car, or you can park it and play your music through the speakers this bad boy comes equipped with. The gull-wing doors on the car open to make sure you can hear everything nice and clear, and the lights on the car will even flash along to the music.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG comes with a price tag of $129.99 and will be launching sometime in Spring 2013. Silverlit is set to give the RC car a full reveal during CES 2013, which is right around the corner. Of course, we’ll be there reporting on all of the awesome stuff that’s sure to appear on the show floor, so keep it here at SlashGear for all you need to know!
