The AMG-GT3 is a racing machine of Mercedes-Benz, revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The car is based on the AMG GT road car, and would replace the SLS AMG GT3 that had been active in racing around the world since 2011.
The machine, developed in line with the FIA-GT3 regulations, sports wide front and rear fenders and other impressive aerodynamic parts. There is a low front splitter, 2 large canard wings on both left and right sides of the bumper, a rear wing carried over from the SLS AMG GT3 which reaches to roof height, and the rear diffuser which is much bigger than the previous GT3. With the special vertical latticed front grille, it emanates a sense of presence that is completely different from the road car.
The engine has been converted from the 4 litre twin turbo V8 of the road car to the naturally aspirated 6.3 litre V8 that has a well established track record in the SLS AMG GT3. This is mounted in the aluminium spaceframe. The body is one size smaller than the SLS AMG GT3, with the weight held down below 1,300 kg. With a shorter wheel base, it also has an advantage in terms of agility.
The car debuted in 2016 in various GT3 categories around the world. At the Nürburgring 24 hour race, it dominated 1st to 4th place in its very first year of competition.
HTP Motorsport of Germany is one of the top teams running the AMG GT3, and is always in the top group in the Blancpain GT series. They won the Budapest and Silverstone rounds in 2016, as well as having finished 2nd place overall in the Nürburgring 24 hour race.
