Track-only Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 revealed |

In what will definitely please private racing teams around the world, Mercedes-Benz has just presented a track-only racing version of its extremely popular SLS AMG supercar.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, as its name suggests, will soon be homologated by the FIA for GT3 events. While the engine remains the same: the stunning 6.3-liter V8, power levels will no doubt rise from the stock 563 HP, thanks to many upgrades.

As you can see above and below, the car has received new body parts, including a massive carbon-fiber front splitter, balanced out by a huge wing in the back. A big hood vent, plus multiple ones on the side of the track-only supercar hint at heavy duty brakes while the special wheels will make pit stops much easier.

Until the homologation process is completed, we won’t have any concrete power ratings, but until then, we can really admire the new track-only supercar. The company hopes to have it ready for the 2011 season, so racing teams, you’d better start lining up.
