Following the introduction of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz has now virtually revealed the Racing Series variant which has gained a fixed rear wing that was developed in order to generate additional downforce especially on very fast tracks. While the previous concept had CCD cameras, the updated variant comes with conventional exterior mirrors. The Racing Series is 187 lbs (85 kg) lighter than the previous concept which means it now tips the scales at 2,866 lbs (1,300 kg). Players of Gran Turismo 6 can get the car if they participate in the newly introduced seasonal event.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Racing Series is motivated by the same V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine but it has been further tweaked to develop no less than 591 HP (434 kW). The powerful engine works in combination with a dual clutch seven-speed gearbox that according to Mercedes-Benz has been “optimized for transmission performance rather than ride comfort.”
