AMG GmbH which started as a separate entity is now a Mercedes-Benz owned division. Started back in 1967, it was taken over completely by Diamler in 2005. To celebrate its 55th anniversary they have launched a special edition Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series. Only 55 examples of the limited edition car will be made available and will cost € 3,69,000 before tax.
When you hear the word AMG, the first thing that comes to mind is super-fast cars. They take the best car and make it even better. The brand has now introduced one such car that is going to boggle your mind. So let’s dive in for more details.
Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series
To begin with, the GT Track Series is the most powerful sports car to be developed by the company yet. It is an extended version or it is based on the legendary Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. The Black Series is a high-performance track-focused car. The GT Track Series is a notch above it. The car is aimed at top-level performance, combining it with the racetrack qualities also underlining its high exclusivity by numerous technical and visual features.
The car just weighs 1,400 kg, thanks to the generous use of carbon fibre all over the car. The interior, bonnet, sills, back door, rear apron and wings are made of carbon fibre. You don’t have infotainment or an AC system because you can’t drive it on road. Yes, you read it right. This track-focused car is illegal to drive on normal roads.
