Mercedes AMG GT3 teased for Geneva image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is currently teasing out the AMG GT3 which will be officially presented to the public next month, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

After being officially confirmed about three months ago, the brand new Mercedes AMG GT3 is now getting ready to be officially unveiled. According to the car manufacturer, the racer will be shown to the public in a couple of weeks, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere. This will be replacing the old SLS AMG GT3 and it will be ready for the 2016 racing season, as it will comply with the FIA GT3 regulations.

The model in question will be getting a significantly wider body compared to the road legal version, some additional vents, flared wheel arches, a large fixed rear wing which will provide more downforce, some racing wheels, a stripped out interior, a roll cage, a bucket seat and several other tweaks which will make it ready for the track.

We are not sure at this time what engine this will be using under its hood, but as a small reminder, the regular AMG GT has a newly developed 4.0 liter biturbo V8 unit, with 462 HP (339 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque in the entry-level or 510 HP (375 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque in the more expensive AMG GT S. Prices for the sports car start from 115,430 euros and for the AMG GT S at 134,351 euros.
