The stunning Mercedes-AMG GT3 is a production race car made for the FIA's GT3 class, and first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2015. It employs a lightweight body with carbon fiber panels over an aluminum space frame, a large rear wing and diffuser, plus a monster 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine. This R/C model assembly kit depicts the car as it was at the Geneva Motor Show, its polycarbonate body capturing the regal form of the short-deck long-nose racer inclusive of the stylish grille. Separate parts are included to depict the side mirrors and distinctive rear wing. Also included in the kit are marking stickers to recreate yellow design accents, car number, AMG logos and more.
The shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports. Black 12-spoke wheels are paired with slick tires for a racy finish.
