Mercedes-AMG GT3 (1/24 Scale) – Tamiya
|A Modern Great
GT racing has captured the imagination of race fans across the world, with cutting edge cars from famed marques such as Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi and more. That illustrious list also includes Mercedes and the German auto giant’s Mercedes-AMG GT3, developed in line with the FIA’s GT3 class specs. The AMG GT production car is used as a base, and given an aluminum space frame, carbon fiber body components, a mammoth rear wing, rear diffuser, front spoiler and other racy upgrades. Power is provided by a monster 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 mounted in the front. Delivery of the car began in 2016; in addition to gracing the Super GT series in Japan, the AMG GT3 has taken part in major races across the world. One of the highlights of its 2016 season was taking the Blancpain GT Series driver and team titles in HTP motorsport colors, a feat perhaps surpassed by an overwhelming display at that year’s 24 Hours Nürburgring where Mercedes-AMG GT3 cars took the top four places.
