Mercedes-AMG GT3 Teased

New customer sport racer to break cover at the Geneva Motor Show

The silly season is winding down and racing has moved front and center in the minds of many. It's why we're seeing a lot of automakers lately introduce their newest racers, and in particular the upcoming Geneva Motor Show appears like it will be fertile ground for many a motorsports debut. On that list of revealers will be Mercedes-Benz, which has announced the coming of its Mercedes-AMG GT3 at the exhibition.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3

The revelation included a single image of the car from head on and very little else, leaving much to the imagination. We do know the Mercedes-AMG GT3 will be based on the road-going 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT and GT S, a vehicle that packs a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The regular GT model produces 456hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, while the GT S outputs 503hp and 469 lb-ft. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 succeeds the SLS AMG GT3 race car.

Racing customers worldwide, including those in the US, will be able to purchase the GT3-spec machine through AMG Customers Sports in Affalterbach, Germany. We'll have more details and images of the car when it officially drops March 5.
