The Mercedes-AMG GT3 is shown at the Estoril track in Portugal.

Earlier, a teaser image displaying just the front of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 was shown to us. A couple of hours ago, more photos showing the various angles of the car were officially released.

The pictures of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 were captured at the Estoril circuit in Portugal. The supercar showed a wider body than the standard AMG GT variant. It also featured major aerodynamic enhancements like larger intakes, redesigned front bumper, and massive rear wing.

FIA GT3 specs were incorporated in the car too like racing steering wheel, pedals, radio system, extra push buttons and knobs, sports carbon fiber shell seat, plus a protective roll cage. Then, carbon fiber materials were used in the entire body of the auto to make it lighter and more agile.

The new race car will replace the SLS AMG GT3, which raked in around 182 victories in its run. It will be the three-pointed star brand’s response to the likes of Porsche 911 AMG GT3 and other GT3-modded cars.

Under the hood, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 will be carrying the same naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter power unit of its predecessor. This is opposed to earlier reports that it will be equipped with a tweaked 4.0-liter biturbo v8 unit.

The car will make its physical premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show this March. It is estimated to cost around $500,000, including the taxes, once it rolls out.
