Mercedes-AMG is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To commemorate the event, the brand introduced the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50.
The special edition Mercedes-AMG GT3 will only be limited to five units. AMG said that the car is made to appeal to collectors who have a passion for motorsport. The units are delivered directly in Affalterbach.
Here are the key features of the race car based on sources:
AMG retains the 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine of the car. The unit keeps its 622 hp configuration with 635 Nm of torque distributed via a six-speed sequential racing transmission. The configuration allows the vehicle to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds while its top speed can reach up to 332 km/h.
The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 ramps up its exclusivity with its more aggressive look. The car gets a new carbon fiber body kit with new bumpers, redesigned side skirts, added air intakes on the front fenders, improved rear diffuser and expanded rear wing.
The car also has a bespoke gray paint finish adorned with black stripes. New “50 Years AMG” badges can be found on the hood and doors of the vehicle too.
The exterior of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 is complemented by new elements in the interior like new carbon fiber racing seats, rollcage and racing steering wheel. New race-specific switchgear and enhanced instrument cluster are installed as well. Again, special badges indicating the 50-year anniversary of AMG line up the seatbelts.
