Buy This Never-Raced Mercedes-AMG GT3 One-Off For A Good Cause



It's heading to auction where the race car is estimated to fetch as much as $600,000.
Back in April 2015, Mercedes built a one-of-a-kind SLS AMG GT3 to benefit the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. The car in question happened to be the 100th example of the race car and went on to raise €250,000 for the foundation. Fast forward to August 2018, Mercedes is doing it again by auctioning off a unique AMG GT3 to benefit the same foundation, of which the German automaker is actually one of the founding members.

RM Sotheby’s will have the never-raced track-only machine up for grabs in a week from tomorrow at the Monterey sale where the GT3 Laureus is expected to fetch anywhere between $400,000 to $600,000. Built to celebrate AMG’s 50th anniversary, the special race car is going to be offered without reserve and will attempt to lure in buyers with its naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V8 engine developing 641 horsepower (478 kilowatts) devoid of any FIA restrictions. The immense power is channeled to 18-inch AMG forged wheels through a competition-spec six-speed gearbox guaranteeing epic performance on a track.
