Mercedes-AMG GT3 Road Car Spied Testing

Mercedes is building a hotter version of the AMG GT and we have new spy photos showing the car testing.

The car seen in these photos is likely a road-going version based on the brandís AMG GT GT3 race car. It could be an AMG GT Black Series, but Mercedes doesnít usually introduce the Black Series until later in a carís life cycle, plus, we know that Mercedes plans to offer many variants of its new sports car.

This version, as the name suggests, will compete with the Porsche 911 GT3, though when it launches, the Mercedes is expected to drop the GT3 moniker, leaving the name of the car currently unknown.

This car is obviously a faster version of the AMG GT, made clear by the aggressive aerodynamic makeover, a large front splitter, front fascia winglets and a large spoiler and diffuser out back. Massive brakes and sticky low profile tires are also fitted to the car.

Under the hood, the standard GTís 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 is expected to be tuned to make around 550 hp. A carbon fiber diet will help to reduce the weight of the car as well, resulting in better performance. A centrally located single port exhaust is also seen on this prototype.

The AMG GT GT3 is expected to be released in 2016 as a 2017 model year vehicle, though it may be sooner if a recently released mystery teaser from AMG previewing 'something fast,' is referring to the AMG GT3 road car.
