Mercedes-AMG celebrates 50 years of greatness with the AMG GT3 Edition 50


This year, Mercedes-AMG are celebrating their 50th anniversary and there’s probably no better time to introduce the highly exclusive AMG GT3 Edition 50.

Unveiled during last weekend’s Nurburgring 24-hour race, the AMG GT3 Edition 50 is based on the AMG GT that’s built to the GT3 race car specification. The bespoke matte grey paint with contrasting black stripe aside, the “50 YEARS AMG” and “50 YEARS OF DRIVING PERFORMANCE” deco are found around the car.

It gets a rather glaring carbon fibre GT aero kit comprised of a huge front diffuser, GT wing, side skirts and air intakes. Being a true-bred race car, it sits just one person and the seat itself is made of carbon fibre. There’s also a roll cage and digital instruments fitted as standard.

Just like the GT3 cars, the AMG-made 6.3-litre V8 is tasked to generate power to the rear wheels. A six-speed sequential racing transmission is tasked to do so.

Finally, each of the five buyers of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 is entitled to receive the “50th Anniversary of Mercedes‑AMG” commissioned by IWC. Each watch is finished according to the style of the car.
