2017 Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50

The Mercedes performance arm has celebrated its half-century milestone by announcing the release of an exclusive AMG GT3 car, the Edition 50. Only five will be made, so relax, you very likely can't have one.

The GT3 Edition 50 is based on AMG’s GT3 race car, right down to sporting the older 6.2-liter V-8 and not the newer 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 of the GT road car. Power is pegged at 550 hp and 502 lb-ft.
The GT3 Edition 50 will get a special paint colour for the accents, ‘True Black’, as well as special badging, and copious carbon fiber. Inside, the GT3 Edition 50 has a racing fitout, with a roll cage, carbon fiber-shelled seats and silver six-point seat belts.
