We survived extreme winter driving in mercedes-amg's top-secret testing facility

I guess it is not "Top Secret" any longer since it is on the SLK Forum.

Welcome to the most dangerous driver’s ed class on earth.

"Hit the gas!” screams my instructor as I struggle to maintain control of the 510-horsepower AMG GT S that is careening toward a frozen, 16-foot-high embankment. Snow and ice fly through the open driver’s-side window as we slide sideways. I hit the accelerator—which, counterintuitively, is the only way to change direction and, hopefully, avoid a $150,000 collision.

Lesson number one of ice driving: Turning the steering wheel doesn’t do a thing.
