The engineering under the bonnet is of a similarly exclusive standard. 48 year-old racing driver Bernd Schneider is assisting the responsible AMG engine fitter in installing the naturally aspirated AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine. The special AMG engine badge bearing the signatures of Bernd Schneider and the responsible engine fitter attest to this high-calibre duo’s handiwork. Customers who acquire one of the rare SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary models also receive an exclusive vehicle certificate signed by Bernd Schneider.
2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary Edition Exterior and Interior. The special edition’s logo embodies consummate design right down to the finer points of detail: closer inspection reveals the exposed carbon-fibre structure of the gullwing doors under the matt paintwork. The doors, along with the bonnet, mudguards, boot lid, rear wings, front and rear apron, front splitter and rear diffusor, are produced in the particularly lightweight motorsport material CFRP (CFRP = carbon fibre reinforced plastic).
The interior of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary evokes a functional racing car atmosphere, refined by high-quality, exclusive details: the steel roll-over cage is finished in matt “designo magno graphite” to match the exterior. The racing car’s dashboard and centre console sport a matt carbon-fibre finish. Effective contrasts are produced by six-point seat belts and a steering wheel spider in silver. The collector’s item also boasts a seat shell in a high-strength carbon-fibre safety cell on the co-driver’s side. A special badge with a “1 of 5″ logo on the seats and the centre console alludes to the limited production run for this racing car. The standard appointments for the SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary are rounded off by a high-quality AMG indoor car cover with “45 Years of Driving Performance” logo.
