Mercedes presented its commercial at the Super Bowl (in fact, will present) introducing the new Mercedes AMG GT to the American public. The Mercedes AMG GT S powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine developing 510 hp (375 kW) was put to the test in a racing against (the time… another car… a train… fighter jet… The flash… Sonic???) a hare. Yes, the hare of Aesop’s “The Tortoise and the Hare” fable.
In the Mercedes version, yeah, the hare still ridicules the slow-moving tortoise and after a selfie, the race starts. The hare leaves immediately the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, stops to play cards with others woodland creatures. The “slow and steady” tortoise see in the middle of the forest a Mercedes factory, it picks up the Mercedes AMG GT S and crosses the finish line in first, of course, because “performance is no fairy tale”…. well, and the moral of the story is?
