Mercedes-AMG GT GT3 Is A Track Monster To Be Very Afraid Of

Chris Aaron February 23, 2015 15:29

To all good things, an end, they say. And so, the SLS AMG GT3 racer that proved quite the hit in the FIA’s GT3 racing series will have to make way for a new kind of monster from the AMG skunk works. This. Is. It. Almost…

Teased by the carmaker, here is a first glimpse of yet another exciting car lined up for to debut at the coming Geneva Motor Show, the Mercedes-AMG GT3. From what we understand, Mercedes-AMG aren’t too happy about calling the car a “GT3”, with its boss Tobias Moers saying previously that that’s a title reserved for another carmaker (referring to Porsche’s 911 GT3 in his interview with Autocar).

Despite its name, this track-focused variant of the AMG GT will be prepped for battle in the FIA’s GT3 racing series, adhering entirely to the required specifications for competition.

The AMG GT3 – if we could call it that for now – will compete against the Bentley Continental GT3, Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, Lamborghini Huracan GT3, McLaren 650S GT3 and more in the various FIA GT3 series around the globe.

More to come, at Geneva. But... that grille... Mmmmm.
