When the teaser image of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 was released before the car’s official debut, its outline appeared like a feral predator staring right in front us with its headlights and grille resembling a very aggressive stare.
The video that you are about to see below will display what the GT3 sports car of the three-pointed star brand is capable of. It presents a proof that the car is not just about the looks, but it’s about power as well.
Watch the car in the clip below as it sprints down the Nürburgring endurance track:
As seen in the video above, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 remains true to the hype surrounding it. The flawless performance it displayed here truly makes it a worthy successor to the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3, and definitely an adversary that the Porsche 911 GT3 and other GT3-configured cars should watch out for.
Turning up the volume of the video would reveal a familiar sound emanating from the scream of the Mercedes-AMG GT3. That’s because it carried over its predecessor’s awesome 6.2-liter biturbo V8 engine instead of going for the expected tweaked 4.0-liter biturbo V8 found on the Mercedes-AMG GT S model.
The Mercedes-AMG GT3 just debuted last month at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Deliveries of orders to customers will commence by the end of this year. According to sources, it’s cost is just a little less than $500,000 including taxes, and it was made exclusively for GT3 events organized by the FIA.
