When the series competition consists of Lamborghini Huracans, Audi R8s, Dodge Vipers and Nissan GT-R’s, manufacturers have to be vicious, but seriously, Mercedes?

We don’t know specs yet, but if that valence and those comical-if-they-weren’t-so-hardcore fenders tell us anything, the rest of paddock ought to be on a very high alert.
