Mercedes‑AMG GT Track Series

The Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series extends the GT legacy with a new iconic model. The legendary high-performance Mercedes AMG GT Black Series served as the basis for development. Like this latest model, the GT Track stands out for its performance-oriented vehicle conceptcombining it with the track-proven qualities of the GT3 and GT4 models.

The heart of the Mercedes‑AMG GT Track Series that is not approved for public roads is the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 from the Black Series Mercedes‑AMG GT, whose impressive figures have been improved by Affalterbach engineers. The exclusive model now has a power of 580 kW (734 hp) and a maximum torque of 850 Nm.

The bonnet, wings, tailgate and rear apron are made of carbon fiber and contribute greatly to improving driving dynamics. Another important effect of mixing materials is the reduction of curb weight of the vehicle up to 1,400 kg.

To ensure effective cooling of the rear brakes, cooling air ducts are fitted. The rear apron with double diffuser and side air vents in the wheel arches also references the sporty DNA of the Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series.

Like the GT3 and GT4, easy-to-use racing electronics like race-specific traction control and motorsports ABS, each adjustable in 12 levels, have also been fitted.

The driver’s safety cell is generously dimensioned and even offers taller drivers enough room to move around. In addition, it has a five-point safety harness and a customizable ergonomic seat with foam. As a result, the driver’s safety cell complies with the latest FIA standards and offers a considerably higher level of protection than usual racing seats.

The steering wheel, developed exclusively for the GT Track in cooperation with the sim racing experts at Cube Controls, has a wide adjustment range and numerous control opportunities. The pedals can also be adjusted and can be individually adapted to the physique of the driver.
