Mercedes-AMG has expanded its customer car lineup with the new GT2 race car. The GT2, with its 4-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 707 horsepower, takes its place at the top as the most powerful customer car offered to private individuals in the 12-year history of the program. The GT2‘s engine is powered by a sequential six-speed gearbox with specific gear ratios mounted above the rear wheels to optimize weight balance. A carbon fiber torque tube runs from the engine to the transmission, and its suspension features adjustable springs and roll bars. The exterior of the vehicle features a refined aero package that can be adapted to the needs of specific racetracks and a full range of safety equipment developed to FIA standards.
“The Mercedes-AMG GT2 is yet another milestone in our Customer Racing program. Thus, we emphasize once more our commitment to GT racing and further expand our involvement by entering a new segment in GT racing. The GT3 segment has become more and more professional and GT4 has become established as an entry-level category, we open up new opportunities with the Mercedes-AMG GT2. As a result, we address an extended range of customers and therefore offer high-quality and comprehensive support of our Customer Racing program to interested parties in the GT2 segment as well. The race series for this category of vehicles have seen a significant increase in reach and relevance in the past two years. In this dynamically growing market, we come up with the Mercedes-AMG GT2 as a highly attractive package and once again prove the performance potential of our brand.”
