Mercedes-AMG will offer an updated version of its GT4 car this year, releasing an Evo kit that will debut this month alongside its new GT3 Evo.

The GT4 Evo features new design characteristics and technical upgrades that focus on improving its endurance racing performance.

These include improved engine and brake cooling systems to reduce brake wear and improve drivability for long periods or in hot conditions.

It also has a number of new shared parts with the 2020 GT3 model, including track rods on the rear axle, and front and rear lights.

The car will launch this month when homologation is completed, with orders already open. All existing AMG GT4s can be upgraded through an upgrade kit, meanwhile.

“When we entered the GT4 segment two years ago, it was our aim to build a car that was capable of winning right away,” said Stefan Wendl, head of Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing.

“Looking at the achievements of the Mercedes-AMG GT4, we have succeeded in doing so in an impressive way. In order to enable our customer racing teams to accomplish such top achievements at the race track in the future as well and to be prepared in the best way for the challenges in newly entered markets like Asia and South America, we have now decided to update the Mercedes-AMG GT4.

“The new edition combines performance, safety and economical aspects like no other car in this segment and has been tailor-made to meet the requirements of the customer teams.

“With its powerful V8 biturbo engine, the new Mercedes-AMG GT4 also guarantees plenty of fun away from the major international racing stage, be it during track days or in race series with open classes.

“The course for a successful future in the GT4 category has been set.”

Since its launch in 2018, the Mercedes-AMG GT4 has scored 151 class wins and 53 overall wins out of 363 races entered. 

More than 120 examples have been delivered around the world.
