OMG! An AMG!I love building Speed Champions sets and the Mercedes-AMG GT3 was no exception. The first thing that stood out to me off the shelf was the colors. The grey and yellow are really unique compared to most of the other cars in this line, especially the yellow rims. They really stand out! The minifigure is one of my favorites in the Speed Champions sets. That black racing suit with the yellow stripe is pretty hard to beat. This is the first one that I have built that has an extra front end that is easily interchangeable. That way you can customize its look! I'm one of the few people who love applying decals and this car has plenty of them but they are clear! This is one of the first sets that have had clear stickers. For me it seems to make the placement a little easier and it didn't compromise contrast in colors. I can't finish up without mentioning the spoiler. It's one of the best and more unique in the Speed Champions set. I consider this a must-have for Speed Champions collector's and Lego car fans alike. Even if you're not of fan of Mercedes you can't go wrong with this build and the end result is a great looking car that looks right at home next to all the others.

AMGood day - AMGood build & play!First of all, it was great to get this set in the Mercedes-Benz AMG 50th Anniversary year.
Very nice design with rear & front lights-pieces (not stickers as in most other models). You can build two car versions - road GT & his successful racing "brother in arms" from FIA GT3 category. Road car front & racing car side-back details is very similar to their predecessor - SLS AMG (- GT3). So You can create previous model(-s) too, just replacing details or colors (for example - SLS front lights`s role can be fulfilled by front slopes (curved 2 x 1 no studs), just replace dark bluish gray by bright color) - it`s almost 4 in 1.
More than build this set I like to redesign it. I don`t like stickers (despite their using in real motorsport) especially when you can create model with the use of prints or even pieces. I understand some production-serie restrictions, so I tried to circumvent it by myself & a little carried away I created a symbiosis both racing models - new GT3 with his predecessor`s elements (see photo 1-2).
The main problem that I had faced was the wheel arch (mudguard 4 x 2 1/2 x 2 1/3) design (see pictures 2-3, 1 point). It seemed strange to me that we weren`t given a choice - surface with outside pins or without. It`s a children's toy - not scale model, of course, but as You can see (photo 1-2) model looks more accurate & proportionally with other mudguard (4 x 2 1/2 x 1 2/3) & tile. Moreover, it allows You to place the aerodynamics louvers (stickers like in set, or print, or modified tile 1 x 2 (by the way, hope to see flat-tile version of slope 18 2 x 1 x 2/3 with 4 slots that I used for radiator grille)) in the right place - on the top of the front wheels fenders. That's why I'd like to see this mudguard upgrade with its 4-pin plate at a lower level.
A second and less considerable difficulty is palette of available colors. I marked the list of pieces with their desired colors (see 3rd picture). It would be great if LEGO took into account all this wishes.
I wish You all also Happy New Year! From Russia with love & passion since 1985. Thank You very much & Good Luck!

AMG Power!I saw this set on the shelf for just £10 and therefore couldn't resist purchasing it. The building experience was as usual brilliant and the finished model's detail was sublime. It comes with two easily interchangeable noses and two styles of rims. The stickers are high-quality prints and add a considerable amount of detail. Overall, this is a great set for a weekends build and for the price absolutely incredible value. Kudos to you Lego, kudos to you. :D
