Forty years ago the Mercedes 300 SEL 6.8 AMG achieved a class victory and second overall placing at the 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium. The 2011 Mercedes–Benz #35 Black Falcon SLS AMG GT3 has been given the exact same livery to honor that performance. This time it was driven by a team including Kenneth Heyer, son of Hans Heyer who accomplished that victory, with co-driver Clemens Schickentanz. In 2011 the team ended up taking a respectable third. The car went on to take second at the Bathurst 12 Hour Race as well. The car’s deep carbon-fiber splitter and huge rear-wing complement its distinctive long nose and extremely low roofline. Mercedes is back in the racing scene and its performance is as you would expect: among the best.
