The Mercedes-AMG GT3 class spec customer sports car was converted from the AMG GT road car by the Mercedes-AMG high performance division which featured a reliable and powerful 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine harnessing 558hp (with a 36mm air restrictor!). Its carbon fiber body overhauls the road car base and has a prominent grille inspired by the classic 300 SL. It was outfitted with racing essentials such as a large rear wing, air intakes, splitter, canards and diffusers that all contributed to superlative aerodynamics. Delivery of the car began in 2016. The AMG GT3 has provided top-class results in races such as 2016 Blancpain GT Series driver and constructor championships plus managed a sweep of the top four places in the 2016 running of the 24 Hours Nürburgring.
This 1/24 scale plastic model assembly kit captures the glamorous long nose, short deck form of the AMG GT3. Stunning details include bonnet and fender air outlets and use of mesh to depict grille sections. You will find fealistic, multi-part depictions of interior (including seat, roll cage, door interior panels) and suspension. Metal-plated parts recreate the front grille while an integrated emblem and decals are included to recreate the dash display. Markings for the gun metal and yellow Mercedes-AMG livery used when the car was tested, displayed at shows, etc. is also included.
A new Tamiya Color spray, TS-100 Semi-Gloss Bright Gun Metal (Item 85100) has been developed specifically for this model and goes on sale simultaneously.
