The Mercedes AMG GT3 was announced in 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show, as the race version of the GT. Using the 6.2-litre V8 from the SLS AMG GT3, the GT3 also has a significantly lower weight aided by carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, which allows the GT3 to comply with racing regulations. With around 550bhp, the AMG GT3 looks to improve upon the popular, and incredibly successful SLS AMG GT3, and conquer the competitive GT3 bracket. Mercedes-AMG, based in Affalterbach, Germany have been engineering and customizing Mercedes for decades and still stick to their often quoted, ‘one man, one engine’ philosophy with engine builders proudly marking each engine built with a plaque displaying their name once complete.
