On the eve of the 2019 24 Hours of Nurburgring, Mercedes-AMG has disclosed its refreshed GT3 race vehicle, with new looks and a mess of smart updates underneath the skin.
The progressions to the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT3 aren’t based on inside and out execution, but instead usability and cost the executives. The 6.3-liter normally suctioned V-8 in the engine presently has a more extended interim between reconstructs, while the front and back wings are simpler to change during pit stops. The front of the vehicle has likewise been revised to, get this, cut down on fix costs after accidents. From AMG’s official statement:
An improved front segment of the vehicle ensures the radiator all the more viably and a recently created fundamental bar raises the assurance dimension of the units in the front of the vehicle (motor, front hub, controlling and so forth.). With these enhancements, Mercedes-AMG guarantees that minor mishaps and impacts specifically lead to less expenses for the groups later on, or ideally no expenses by any stretch of the imagination.
Maybe the coolest new bit of tech is the thing that Mercedes calls the “Drop Start” highlight. It’s a capacity in the vehicle’s ECU that consequently flames up the motor when the vehicle is dropped from its air jacks. That implies the driver doesn’t need to consider turning over the motor before taking off from the pits—the vehicle does it for them, which means one less thing to stress over. Entirely savvy.
