Erebus Motorsport has unveiled its Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG V8 Supercars racer.
After we saw the Holden VF Commodore and Nissan Altima contenders for the V8 Supercars championship, now it’s time to have a look at what Erebus Motorsport has to offer. Based on the facelifted E63 AMG, the car is built in Australia by Erebus and represents the first AMG race car produced outside Germany.
Erebus represents an AMG customer team and will race three of these cars in the V8 Supercars 2013 season. “Car of the Future” regulations require engines with a displacement of no more than 5.0 liters and an rpm limit between 7,000 and 7,500. In addition, the engine’s output has to be limited to approximately 650 hp (485 kW).
Clipsal 500 Adelaide will be the inaugural race of the 2013 V8 Supercars series and will be organized between February 28 and March 3, following a pre-season testing session set for this weekend.
