Tobias Moers the Mercedes-Benz company boss said to Autocar that; Mercedes AMG has already been started working hard relating to its performance division in its GT forthcoming coupe with new GT version of an ultra-high performance such as to target on Porsche 911 GT3. Further he said, "It sounds a well good idea for our GT3 version of street-legal racing car".

He also mentioned that, though the new car aims to target directly on Porsche 911 GT3, but still it will neither be Black series car model and nor will be using that name.
Since, GT3 is of other company belonging so our car will get another name for it. Moers confirms that it will be logical to disclose in similar time period replacing successfully immense SLS GT3 by making available racing version FIA GT3 of GT from 2016 season.

According to Moers, the aim for new model is having a package which in every area would be excels. This new model is not meant just to do well for running 0-100km/h just in time 2.8 sec only. Moers added, we need less weight, more power, different suspension and better aerodynamics also the aim should cover-up lap time, drivability, tremendous feel and powered weight ratio.

He admitted that the new model target is to reduce its weight compared to S version GT of 1570kg by 80-100kg will be not possible task and it needed to use different materials. However, the car will be having similar power to the weight ratio as like SLS and also compared to SLS its 80kg already lighter. Hence, its require carbon fiber just like Black series car model consisting to reduce more weight.

Moers never drawn regarding when new car going to be available, but was less drawn easily on addition power concept so far as how much to be get extracted from new V8 twin-turbo 4.0 liter engine. Although, he admitted that it might be around 550bhk near to power increase with 10% on two more powerful 503bhp engines which is going to be available at launch for GT.

He further mentioned that the engine shares straight forward with the internal architecture to make such powerful engine with four-cylinder 2.0 liter motor similar like that been used in A45 AMG, where the 355bhp been already extracted. He said; "It's not as easy and simple to get 700bhp from V8 engine as it's currently been very under stressed."

A GT with 550bhp weighing 80kg will be providing 369bhp/tone power to the weight ratio which is enough to run at 0-62mph 3.8sec time back to 3.6sec traction-limited and top speed increase from current 193mph. In history, it will be the first time where AMG's entire department employs aerodynamicists.

Overall, this new car will get rear track and wider front so as to aid mechanical grip. Moers says; using standard tires are not designed with special compounds to last for just few laps, the whole package should be able to lap 10 or even more than lap time of GT's Nurburgring seconds off as currently it stands for 7min-30sec.
