GT3 racer variant of the SLS AMG will come with an unspecified power boost and a lack of cabin comforts - and that massive rear wing too.

[UPDATE]  Press release and 16 high-res photos added to article.

Here are some of the first photos (leaked) of the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 racer.

The car pictured here features a heavily revised body which includes the front bumper with large central intake and lower splitter, canard air foils, hood, fenders with deep wheel well vents, huge side sills, that massive carbon rear wing integrated into the boot lid, fuel filler pocket in the quarter panels and rear bumper with purposeful diffuser.

Naturally, the interior is completely stripped of all creature comforts such as navigation and air conditioning in favor of carbon fiber buckets and center console, an LED display instrument cluster, racing steering wheel, fire suspression system and roll cage.

Details are few on the SLS AMG GT3 racer. It will have an unspecified power boost over the 571 PS (420 kW / 563 bhp) of the standard model - somewhere north of the 600 PS (441 kW / 592 bhp) mark. There isn't much more than that to say, except to have a look at the photos and see what else you can spot.

The Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 racer will likely debut in the spring of 2011.  Official details and biger photos are expected to be released on 27 March.
