Mercedes SLS GT3 Now Available For Order


The simply awesome Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 racer is now at the very last stages of testings and can be ordered now by private teams.

The deliveries will happen just in time for the 2011 GT racing season, so teams may apply their changes to the car before taking it out on the track. That said, the original package has such a perfect recipe, you wouldn’t change a single thing!

The SLS GT3 is powered by a tweaked version of the same 6.3 liter V8 as in the road car, which according to FIA GT3 rules has to be toned down to 600 hp. It’s also specially lightened and comes with a massive aerodynamic kit and other necessary parts a racing machine needs.

This car is also one of the all time best looking racing cars and will probably be very successful in sales, in spite of its hefty price tag of €334,000 (€397,460 with 19% VAT).

Mercedes factory driver and DTM champion Bernd Schneider is in charge of finalizing the SLS GT3 test programs to make sure the car is ready for its track debut at Nürburgring Nordschleife VLN race in September.
