The extra special Mercedes Benz SLS AMG will make its race track debut in 2011. The Car features clean design and breathtaking form of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG. The 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 race car boasts a new front skirt with enlarged air intakes. The wide opening beneath the characteristic radiator grill bearing the large Mercedes star and the wing shaped horizontal fins supplies air to the engine oil cooler and brake discs. The same function is served by the two intakes below the vertical bi-xenon headlamps. Downforce on the front axle is provided courtesy of four externally mounted side flics, as well as a carbon front splitter; it runs directly into the smooth underbody panel. The hood features a central opening for the extraction of heat from the engine, while side openings in the front fenders facilitate air flow through the wheel arches. The fenders have been widened front and rear to accommodate the large racing tires with a breadth of 78.3 inches, the GT3 bodyshell is a good 2 inches wider than the series production Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The new sills feature openings for cooling the rear brakes, with the smooth underbody visible along the underside of the sills. The 31.7 gallon fuel tank is located centrally behind the driver. The AMG 6.3 liter V8 engine is virtually identical to that of the series production vehicle. Due to its low weight, the acceleration figures for the GT3 3.7 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 60 mph. Depending on gear ratio, the top speed is more than 186 mph. The AMG 6.3 liter V8 engine uses dry sump lubrication in the racing vehicle, too. All four corners feature brake discs in motorsport-tested composite technology. Gray cast iron axial and radial floating discs are fixed to an aluminum hat via stainless steel composite elements. This sophisticated technology enables perfect heat dissipation and thus reliable stability. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 is also equipped with precisely calculated cooling channels openings in the front skirt and ahead of the rear wheels direct cool airflow over the brake discs. All four brake discs are ventilated, slotted and drilled. Six pot fixed calipers on the front axle and four pot fixed calipers at the rear, with the AMG logo in white, provide plenty of brake pad surface. An anti-lock brake system with special race track settings is fitted as standard. A steering wheel with a diameter of 13 inches facilitates perfect vehicle control. On opening the gullwing doors, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 displays a functional interior with a distinctly race car feel.
