Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 is rare, expensive, and banned from public roads

Only five units will be made to mark AMG’s 50th birthday

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled the new GT3 Edition 50, a limited-run customer racing car that features a unique paint scheme and plenty of optional extras.

Marking AMG's half a century of existence, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 will be built in a limited run of just five units aimed at car collectors who occasionally like to race their rare collectibles.

The highlight of the exterior is the special gray paint finish, worn by an AMG car for the first time. There are also black accents on the bodywork, including the roof and bonnet (on the "50 Years AMG" emblem). Another striking feature is the silver-framed logo "50 Years of Driving Performance" in finely-grained carbon-fiber on the doors.

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 is abundant in carbon fiber, with the lightweight material used on the front and rear diffusers, huge rear wing, air intakes, grille, and side skirts.

Inside, the limited edition racing car gets the obligatory roll cage as well as exclusive details including matt black carbon fiber dashboard, center console, door panels, sills, and vent pipe. Contrast is provided by the silver-colored six-point seat belts and the racing steering wheel.

Among other things, each of the five vehicles will be delivered with a matching Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition "50th Anniversary of Mercedes‑AMG" watch from IWC Schaffhausen. The handover of each Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 will take place at the company headquarters in Affalterbach.
