The design and the aerodynamics of the AMG GT Track Series features carbon fibre elements on the bonnet, wings, sills, back door and the rear apron as contribution to the high driving dynamics. Furthermore, the use of lightweight materials has helped reduce the kerb weight of the vehicle to 1,400 kg.

The front of the vehicle is characterized by the AMG specific sport radiator grille which ensures optimum airflow to the radiator, the high-downforce front-splitter was developed specifically for the GT Track Series, the modified rear wing based on the aero element of the GT Black series was developed to improve the rear axle downforce and the exclusive bonnet with a large air outlet guides hot air from the engine bay, increases the downforce and contributes to the cooling of the engine.
Other special development of the AMG GT Track Series include the exclusive high-sheen milled and forged 18 inch wheels, exclusive semi-gloss special finish in Manufaktur hightech silver magno with design element in red and anthracite and the integration of the AMG emblem in the upper area of the front apron.
