Nick Saban Impresses Players with Slick New Mercedes-Benz
Remember that car Nick Saban was test driving in a recent commercial for Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham? Well, it looks like he's driving one around Tuscaloosa now and the players have taken notice.
Offensive lineman Alphonse Taylor had to share the new ride, which was parked outside the Mal Moore Athletic Facility on Thursday.
It appears Saban has upgraded to brand new Mercedes-AMG GT S, which was just introduced this Spring. The sports car boasts a 193 mph top speed and can go from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. That speed will impress even the most loyal SEC football fans. It's not a surprise that the Alabama head coach would have a brand new model Benz since he's a partner in a Hoover dealership.
Check out freshman Da'Ron Payne's reaction to seeing the fresh, new ride.
Summer workouts have already gotten underway for the Alabama football team. The 2015 season will begin against Wisconsin on September 5.
