Mercedes-AMG has unveiled a second model to celebrate its 55th anniversary.

Following from the AMG G63 Edition 55, Mercedes AMG has unveiled a second model to celebrate its 55th anniversary: The Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series. The uncompromised, exclusive performance car will be limited to just 55 examples.

The mechanically adjustable racing rear wing on the rear of the AMG GT Track Series is based on the one on the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series
Built on the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, the Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series offers top level performance, and is currently Ineligible for road use approval.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series utilises the 4.0-litre bi-turbo found in the GT Black Series, but tuned to produce 767bhp and 850Nm of torque. This power is put to the road via a Hewland HLS six-speed racing gearbox, which is installed on the rear axle in transaxle configuration.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series also gets adjustable four-way Bilstein dampers alongside individually adjustable anti-roll bars, additions that AMG states will give the car precise handling with unmistakable feedback.

The seats and five-point safety harness in the Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series are said to offer high protection than the usual race seats
Further building on the car's performance-oriented theme is a lightweight body, thanks to the use of a carbon fibre bonnet, fenders, side sills, trunk lid and rear bumper. The car also sports Track Series-exclusive high-downforce front splitter, which works alongside a modified, mechanically adjustable racing rear wing for improved aerodynamic downforce.

And to complete the performance fittings are exclusive high-sheen milled and forged 18-inch wheels, a common wheel rim size for GT race cars. These rims, Mercedes-AMG states, will allow all the usual competition tyre types to be used on the Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series.

In the cabin, the limited edition car gets a high-tensile steel roll cage, bolted to the aluminum space frame, while an extrication hatch has been placed in the roof. A five-point safety harness and customisable ergonomic seat also allows the driver safety cell to meet the latest FIA standards while offering a considerably higher protection level than usual race seats.

A fully programmable Bosch Driver Display Unit also rests within the carbon dashboard, and comes with a comprehensive data logging system for motorsport purposes.
