The new Mercedes AMG GT3 customer race car in its final stages of development and will soon be produced in limited numbers for the gentleman drivers who want a nice new toy and private teams looking to step up their motorsport game.
The car was recently spotted at the Nurburgring flexing its muscles and making an awful lot of noise:
The noise you here does not belong to the AMG GT itself, as it is powered by a nice and small 4.0 liter twin-turbo engine. Mercedes AMG GT3 race car gets the old all-muscle, no-nonsense 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8. It comes with a transaxle six-speed sequential racing gearbox and boasts a very lightweight yet extremely rigid aluminium spaceframe, offering outstanding protection for the driver. The driver is further protected by the resilient carbon-fibre seat pan and an integral roll-over cage made from high-tensile steel. In order to reduce the vehicle weight further still, the engine cover, doors, front wing, front and rear aprons, sidewalls, side skirts, diffuser, boot lid and rear aerofoil are all made from particularly lightweight yet high-strength carbon-fibre.
