Menacing Mercedes-AMG GT3 racer revealed

Mercedes has teased its FIA GT3 race series car ahead of its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show.

It was only a matter of time before Mercedes took its roadgoing AMG GT supercar and gave it the GT3 racing championship treatment. But now the firm has released a mean-looking teaser image of the front of their next track monster, set to take on rivals from Aston Martin and Audi.

Mercedes' last GT3 racer was based on the SLS coupe and enjoyed a fair amount of success on the track. Since AMG began its racing support programme in 2010, the SLS AMG GT3 has achieved some 182 overall victories, 98 pole positions and 930 top ten positions. So the AMG GT3 has an illustrious career to live up to.

Very few details have been released so far of the firm's new racer, but we do know the Geneva Motor Show next month will be the place where Mercedes pulls the wraps off the car in the metal. We'll have more information, including details of the car's design and specs, ahead of the show.
