"It's a great honour, exactly 40 years after my father's success, for me to be bringing the Black Falcon SLS AMG GT3 to the starting line of the 24-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps," Kenneth Heyer remarked.

The Black Falcon was the best of the four Mercedes-AMG customer teams with the near-production SLS AMG GT3 in the 24h race at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium. After a full 24 hours, Kenneth Heyer/Thomas Jäger/Stéphane Lémeret finished third, a mere 10 laps behind the winners. After a total race distance of 545 laps and 2,371 miles, this is a gap of only 43 miles.

For drivers wishing to experience the incredible performance of the SLS GT3 car for themselves, orders can be placed directly with Mercedes-AMG GmbH. The vehicle is only available with left-hand drive.
