While the AMG GT road car uses a 4.0-liter V8, the GT3 relies on the tried and true 6.2-liter V8.

The 6.2-liter V8 used to appear in every AMG 63 model, but it was phased out in favor of a smaller, turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8.

The 5.5-liter is now disappearing, and the 4.0-liter is its replacement.
