The new Mercedes-AMG GT4 was based on the Mercedes-AMG GT R, which already offers exceptional race track performance. In addition to its intelligent combination of close-to-production design and motorsport technology, it incorporates extraordinary durability.

It is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine with direct injection and biturbo charging. The tried-and-tested production technology of the front mid-engine enables extremely long running times and offers sufficient performance reserves for the future. The same also applies to the weight-optimized racing transmission, which has a differential that is adjustable from the outside. Like the extremely reliable and maintenance-friendly motorsport electronics, the highly adjustable ABS and the optimized AMG TRACTION CONTROL are based on the technologies of the Mercedes-AMG GT3. The polycarbonate glass and the ultralightweight body elements such as hood, fenders, and front apron made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic complete the package.

Thanks to its powerful engine and the six-speed sequential racing transmission, the Mercedes-AMG GT4 generates unbelievable propulsion, which needs to be mastered with precision. Its chassis, including double-wishbone axles and shock absorbers with adjustable tension and pressure, provides accurate feedback.

The Mercedes-AMG GT4 offers precise steering behavior, superior agility, and excellent traction. The safety of the new Mercedes-AMG GT4 also sets a benchmark in its class. Its extremely torsion-resistant aluminum space frame with a roll cage made of high-strength steel, the FIA-certified safety seat cell made of carbon, and a rescue gap in the roof ensure it is amongst the best in terms of safety in the GT4 class.

Consistently reduced to the essentials, the cockpit offers optimal ergonomics. Exposed carbon and professional motorsport technology dominate the overall look. Inclined towards the driver, the center console is intuitive, user-friendly, and just as impressive as the clearly structured instrument cluster with its puristic design. The removable steering wheel with a large adjustment range serves as the control center for all key functions, and features illuminated buttons for good visibility at night. The adjustable motorsport foot pedals make it refreshingly easy to master the Mercedes-AMG GT4 with precision. Also refreshing: the exceptional airflow in the interior as well as the optional air-conditioning.

It will proof to be a very strong race car in the ever more competitive league in GT4, now and for future. We look forward to see the Mercedes Benz AMG GT4 in action!
