SLS AMG GT3.

The car with which we started off our customer racing programme in 2011 still is a sporting role model as much as it is a design icon. The first car fully developed in-house by Mercedes-AMG was the basis for a race car as good as it comes, with optimum weight distribution, a low centre of gravity, a powerful drivetrain, efficient aerodynamics and exemplary safety.
