In an interview with Motoring, Hamilton said: "They told me they were doing this project and they’d love me to get involved. They showed me the car and when I first saw it they’d already designed it. I had all these ideas but they couldn’t be added to this [GT R] model." Perhaps the GT R might not be the exact car that Hamilton ends up basing his car on. Mercedes could wait for a future Black Series or GT4 version. Hamilton said that he wants the car to “feel as close as possible to what I feel [in an F1 car],” which means tons of downforce. He also said that if he had his way, the car would pack a V12 engine. Lewis Hamilton, we like your style.
