Mercedes‑AMG’s 734-HP GT Track Series Is Its Most Powerful Sports Car Ever

Though it was only a few days ago that Mercedes-Benz pulled the cover off of its AMG G 63 Edition 55 — a limited-edition SUV built to celebrate AMG’s 55th anniversary — the German automaker has now revealed an even more impressive automotive tribute to 55 years of AMG with the debut of the limited-edition, closed-course-only Mercedes‑AMG GT Track Series.

The most powerful customer sports car ever developed by Mercedes‑AMG, the GT Track Series borrows elements from the GT Black Series as well as from the GT3 and GT4 models. The 55th anniversary GT car is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo engine that’s mated to a sequential Hewland HLS six-speed racing gearbox with adjustable differential, and good for a whopping 734hp and 627ft-lbs of torque. Boasting a wildly impressive curb weight of only 3,086lbs, the track-only GT has been outfitted with a host of race-spec running gear, including comprehensively adjustable four-way Bilstein dampers, anti-roll bars, an AMG-specific radiator grille, an aluminum space frame, race-spec steel brakes cooled via carbon ducts, GT Track Series-exclusive high-sheen milled and forged 18” wheels, and a carbon fiber aero kit that was developed specifically for this limited-edition model that features a set of integrated louvers, black carbon sills, vertical blades, a high-downforce front splitter, and a modified, mechanically adjustable racing rear wing.

Adorned in an exclusive semi-gloss special MANUFAKTUR Hightech Silver Magno finish with red and anthracite accents, the car also gets the same advanced race electronics package as the GT3 and GT4 racers, including a racing-specific traction control system and a motorsport ABS setup — both of which are adjustable with 12 settings. The fully gutted FIA-spec interior of the car sports a high-tensile steel roll-cage, a carbon driver safety cell, customizable ergonomic foam-lined race seats with five-point harnesses, fully-adjustable pedals, a carbon fiber dash with an integrated data logger and a fully programmable BOSCH DDU 11 Driver Display Unit, plus a special steering wheel developed specifically for the GT Track Series by AMG and sim racing outfit Cube Controls.

Limited to only 55 units worldwide, the 2022 Mercedes‑AMG GT Track Series has been priced at €369,000 (~$405,750) and is scheduled to begin deliveries in Q2 of 2022. Mercedes‑AMG is also offering a host of optional upgrades for the track-only GT model including a spare parts starter set, a drinking system, a passenger safety cell, and a seat and helmet ventilation system.

Purchase: $405,750
