This innovation was continued in 2014 with the arrival of the “Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Racing Series.” Launched on 28 January 2014, this variant was inspired by the racing cars of Mercedes itself and successfully retained the essence of its previous model undergoing significant technological enhancements. Over the last decade, this lineage of concept cars has been responsible for several iconic Mercedes-Benz cars, including the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the Mercedes-AMG GT.

With this vehicle we reiterate the desirability and exclusivity that is core to our brand, inspiring discerning customers and brand enthusiasts, world over.”

The AMG Vision Gran Turismo has a striking style, with a long bonnet that smoothly transitions into a small greenhouse. The rear end, which resembles an aerodynamically efficient water drop, adds to the car’s dynamic atmosphere. The slanted headlights and notable wheel arches add to the dynamic, ready-to-leap-forward appearance.
