Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3

Most of the cars catching our attention at this year’s Geneva Motor Show have been meant for the streets, so we thought we’d shift gears a bit to focus on something built specifically for the track. Behold the beautiful Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3.

Packed with a 6.3-liter V8 engine mated to a six-speed sequential racing transmission, Merc’s new high-revving missile was designed to do one thing, and one thing only – crush the competition on the track. Fans of the brand need no reminder that their SLS AMG GT3 won its class at the Nurburgring 24 Hours in 2013, and you better believe the German auto maker plans on repeating. Unfortunately we won’t get to see what this thing is capable of until next year as owners won’t receive their AMG GT3s until the end of 2015. Expect more details to surface when the vehicle is officially unveiled on March 5th. In the meantime, feel free to drool over the photos below.
