2020 Mercedes-AMG GT3 revealed

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its new customer racing version of the road-going GT R, the GT3, before it goes on sale late in 2019. Continuing a program it started with the SLS AMG GT3 in 2010, and furthered with the original AMG GT3 in 2015, the latest GT3 is designed to deliver more performance than its predecessor with lower running costs. After all, racing is an expensive business, so anything that can be done to make marginally less expensive will be welcomed by teams.
