Instead it is the Mercedes AMG GT3. Hm. Photo Credit: Kurt Bradley This all started with a tweet from friend of Jalopnik Manny Suazo:I had to double check this against a couple official Daimler AG press releases just to be sure: Exhibit A Exhibit B Exhibit C Advertisement Advertisement As not-so-Road & very-much-Track’s Fred Smith pointed out, this whole GT category for GT cars is kind of borked in terms of naming schemes:I myself would love to see a Ford GT GT3, though the ultimate would probably be if Porsche to raced a 911 GT3 GT3, or a 911 GT3 RSR GT3.
