Following the launch of the new Mercedes-AMG GT3, Mercedes-AMG presents the further development of its globally successful GT4 model for the tenth anniversary season of its Customer Racing Programme.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT4 (model year 2020) features new design characteristics and technical optimisations that, among others, enhance the endurance racing performance.
Thanks to improved engine and brake cooling, the new Mercedes-AMG GT4 is also able to reliably bring its top performance to the track in extremely hot conditions.
Improved Brake & Engine Cooling
The particular advantages of the new Mercedes-AMG GT4 can be found in its optimised brake cooling around the front axle as well as enhanced engine cooling.
Both the enlarged brake air inlet as well as the dimensionally stable brake air lines with larger diameter prevent the brake components from overheating.
As a result, they ensure better driveability as well as considerably reduced wear of the brakes that are under particular load during endurance races.
New light concept
The update of the Mercedes-AMG GT4 also includes optimised head and rear lights, identical to the corresponding units on the Mercedes-AMG GT3. Their design is in line with the current Mercedes-AMG GT road cars.
Next to the fresh facelift look, the new light concept also comes with a practical purpose: the new LED high performance headlights provide considerably better illumination of the track. In darkness or in poor visibility, this leads to decisive advantages for the drivers in terms of safety and performance.
Optimises handling for the teams
Another optimisation are the modified track rods on the rear axle that are also similar to those used on the new GT3 model and that come with a significantly extended longevity.
The integration of an enlarged brake fluid tank, optimised with the particular requirements in endurance races in mind, is also one of the novelties of the Mercedes-AMG GT4 for the year 2020.
Highest safety standards
The roll cage of high-tensile steel has been bolted to the aluminium space frame and a recovery hatch has been integrated into the roof of the car. The carbon driver safety cell with integrated headrest provides a considerably higher level of protection than usual race seats.
A powerful fire extinguishing system complements the comprehensive safety concept. User- and service friendliness are also the characteristics of the proven competition electronics of the Mercedes-AMG GT4.
