The new Mercedes-AMG GT3: natural born leader
Mercedes-AMG is further expanding its programme for Customer Racing Teams and introduces the new Mercedes-AMG GT3. The car is a consequent further development of the globally successful customer racing car from Affalterbach.
Next to its new looks, it comes with numerous optimisations that are taking the characteristics of the current GT3 to a new level. At the same time, they contribute to further reduction of the running costs.
The new race car was shown in public for the first time during the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring.
After an intense test and trial phase, delivery of the new Mercedes-AMG GT3 to the teams will start at the end of 2019. In 2020, the tenth anniversary of Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing, the car enters its first season of competition.
Until its launch, the new Mercedes-AMG GT3 undergoes a comprehensive test and development programme. To enhance the durability and endurance performance, among others, the car will complete a 30-hour endurance test at race speed.
For testing in race conditions, prototypes of the new car will be taking part in selected races in the second half of the 2019 motorsport season. They will be run in co-operation with development partner HWA and if required with support from partner teams.
