Mercedes-AMG GT3 Race Car Coming in 2016

What’s hotter than the Mercedes-AMG GT? A Mercedes-AMG GT3 race car.

According to a recent report from Top Gear the German automaker is already gearing up to launch a Mercedes-AMG GT3 in 2016 with testing starting next year. It comes as no surprise that Mercedes-AMG will want to give its all-new GT a race variant, considering the SLS GT3 has enjoyed success in various series, claiming 182 overall victories, 98 pole positions and 930 top 10 positions since 2010.

Of course the new Mercedes-AMG GT3 will have a lot to live up to but if the production version is serving as a base, we’d be surprised if it doesn’t find success on the track as well.
