Sketches of the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG DTM race car have been revealed. The new race car is based on the all-new 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.

The Mercedes-AMG DTM team will race the new car in the 2016 DTM season. The current car, which has won 85 out of 159 races, is the most successful car in DTM history. The team expects the new car to continue the winning legacy.

“The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé will again set new standards for driving dynamics and design. So, the vehicle provides the ideal basis for our DTM car,” said Ulrich Fritz, head of Mercedes-AMG DTM, in a release. “I’m already looking forward to seeing the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM compete in 2016. Our aim with this vehicle is, of course, to continue the Mercedes-Benz success story in the DTM.”

From the sketches, we can see the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG DTM race car features a wide-body kit with large fender flares front and back. There is also an aggressive front splitter, hood vents, large rear wing, and rear diffuser.

Expect images of the actual race car to debut later this fall or early next year closer to the beginning of the 2016 DTM season.
