2015 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Mercedes-AMG GT3 image

The racing version of the AMG GT, the AMG GT3, has been officially presented to the public by Mercedes-Benz during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Besides extravagant rides, luxurious cars and brand new supercars, the 2015 Geneva Motor Show has its fair share of track-only vehicles and after the Aston Martin Vulcan has went official, time has come to talk about a true racer, the Mercedes-AMG GT3. The vehicle has been officially unveiled just a few days ago and it is currently making its public debut during the Swiss automotive event.

Mercedes says that the AMG GT3 has been designed in order to meet the FIA GT3 specifications and it will become available for order in the near future but its deliveries will begin close to the end of this year. The new racing car is getting an aggressive carbon fiber wide body kit, with different front and rear bumpers, with modified side skirts, with ventilated front fenders, new doors, a rear diffuser, a prominent rear wing and several other tweaks.

In the cabin, the racing car is packing a carbon fiber racing steel, some carbon fiber trim, a steel roll cage, a new steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster and so on. Unlike the 4-liter V8 engine found under the hood of the street legal version, the AMG GT3 has a larger 6.3 liter V8, which is basically an upgraded version of the one used on the SLS AMG GT3, which is connected to a 6-speed sequential transmission. No performance details have been announced.
