Mercedes Benz has announced its latest competition car, the Mercedes AMG GT4, the car is powered by a 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine.
The Mercedes AMG GT4 comes with 503 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. It has a top speed over 155 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of just 4 seconds.
“The GT4 segment is getting more and more popular. The production-based concept is an important factor, especially when you want to get started in motorsport as a team or as a driver. For some teams, the GT4 category also serves as a sensible addition to their existing involvement in GT3, for instance to support young drivers,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “For us as a manufacturer, GT4 competition is a logical next step to extend our Customer Racing Program. After the achievements in GT3 racing, the Mercedes-AMG GT4 is opening another valuable platform for us to prove our competence as a globally successful sports car and performance brand. There is no doubt that we will once again be setting new benchmarks in the segment with the latest member in our Customer Racing Program.”
The Mercedes-AMG GT4 is based on the Mercedes-AMG GT R that was revealed in June of 2016 and already has a particularly high level of race track performance. The highly dynamic characteristics of the road-legal sports car were developed further in a consequent way. In every area where the production specification could mean a compromise for racing purposes, it is replaced by racing technology for the Mercedes-AMG GT4. The many years of experience from the GT3 segment has clearly been incorporated into the development.
