A number of exterior and interior modifications have been carried out for the special SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary model. The body of the SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary gleams auspiciously in the new designo magno graphite matt paint finish, for example. To date, this matt paintwork has been exclusive to the SL65 AMG 45th Anniversary, which was unveiled to mark the 45th birthday of Mercedes-AMG at the New York International Auto Show in April 2012. The AMG light-alloy wheels in designo magno graphite complement the body’s matt paintwork to perfection.
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.
In keeping with the exclusive exterior and interior equipment and appointments, 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.
