The Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series comes with a more aggressive body kit, four-way adjustable Bilstein dampers, a Hewland HLS six-speed sequential racing transmission with adjustable differential which transfers power to the rear axle.

As far as the design is concerned, the front of AMG GT Track Series is characterised by the AMG-specific sports radiator grille, which ensures optimum airflow to the radiator. The high downforce front splitter was developed exclusively for the GT Track Series. It is complemented by a mechanically adjustable and modified racing rear wing that is based on the aerodynamic element of the GT Black Series, further developed to improve downforce on the rear axle.

Another influence of racing cars in the AMG GT Track Series is the unique characteristic hood with large air intake. It drives hot air from the engine compartment, increases overall downforce and at the same time contributes to engine cooling. It also gets high gloss milled and forged 18-inch rims, the ideal rim size for GT racing cars that can be fitted with all types of competition tires.

The steering wheel has been developed exclusively for the GT Track Series in collaboration with Cube Controls sim racing experts. It has a wide adjustment range and numerous control possibilities. The dashboard, with visible carbon and a matte finish, includes a fully programmable DDU 11 BOSCH pilot display unit.
