2016 Mercedes-AMG GT3
Based on the new Mercedes-AMG GT, the AMG GT 3 does not use the completely new 4.0 liter twin turbo AMG engine but the famous 6.2 liter V8 natural aspirated engine from the former SLS AMG. The sequential six-speed competition gearbox, mounted at the rear axle, has also been developed further. It is connected with the engine by means of a carbon torque tube, a guarantee for a torsion- and torque-stiff power distribution.
A multi-disc locking differential, combined with the adjustable traction control, ensures that the engine power is transferred to the circuit in the best possible way. Gearchange is activated by the driver by means of two ergonomic shift paddles mounted to the steering wheel and operates with a pneumatic actuation.
Like the CLK GTR, the GT3 has been designed primarily as a racer but Mercedes is looking to offer also a street version in the next future.
