A special version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 has just made its debut at the AMG Performance Studio. According to the manufacturer, the vehicle is identical to the 45th Anniversary Edition of the SLS AMG GT3 but comes with an awesome paint finish, perfect for its Dutch Owner. Just like the SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary, this vehicle features new doors, boot lid, hood, mudguards, front and rear apron, rear wings, rear diffuser and front splitter made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).

Moreover, the interior features a steel rollover cage painted in the same color as the exterior. Under the hood, there is the enormous 6.3-liter V8 engine that can push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and to a top speed that exceeds 300 km/h or 186 mph. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary costs 446,250 euros. Still, we don’t have any details regarding the price of this orange beauty!

Exterior Design

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG’s breathtaking form and clean design have been accentuated effectively by targeted bodyshell modifications. The car’s new components, which are made in large part from lightweight carbon fiber, clearly indicate extensive aerodynamic development work and extraordinary race track performance.

From the front, the Benz GT3 race car features a new front skirt that has enlarged air intakes. Beneath the radiator grille that bears the large Benz star and wing-shaped horizontal fins is a wide opening that supplies air to the brake discs and engine oil cooler.

The two intakes found below the car’s vertical bi-xenon headlamps also serve the same function. Front axle downforce, meanwhile, is provided by 4 externally mounted side flics and a carbon front splitter. This runs directly to the car’s smooth underbody panel that also connects to its diffuser.
