Mercedes-AMG is further expanding its programme for Customer Racing Teams and introduces the new Mercedes-AMG GT3. The car is a consequent further development of the globally successful customer racing car from Affalterbach.
The new race car will be shown in public for the first time during the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. After an intense test and trial phase, delivery of the new Mercedes-AMG GT3 to the teams will start at the end of 2019. In 2020, the tenth anniversary of Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing, the car enters its first season of competition.
The concept of Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing has always stood out for spectacular and well-engineered race cars. The SLS AMG GT3, with which the programme started back in 2010, already combined a spectacular design with high-quality racing technology. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 that had its launch in 2015 also was the benchmark in terms of performance, safety, reliability, handling and ergonomics from the very beginning. These characteristics have made it to one of the most successful GT3 cars to date.
Moreover, with over 130 units sold, the race car from Affalterbach also ranks among the world’s most popular products in the GT3 segment. Based on this successful model, the German performance and sports car brand now presents the next evolution level, the new Mercedes-AMG GT3. In numerous areas, it improves the known qualities of its predecessor.
