Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta team up for DTM

This DTM season, we will get to see a MV Agusta-branded Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM take to the race tracks. The two racing legends will come together for the 2015 DTM when DTM rookie Maximilian Götz (29, Mücke Motorsport) will compete in his debut season with an MV Agusta-branded Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM. Similarly, the MV Agusta works team in the World Superbike and World Supersport championships will sport the Mercedes-AMG logo on their MV Agusta F3 and F4 RC machines for the first time this season.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta – the two marques are united in their passion for competition; the constant striving for the highest performance and the quest to finish on the podium are reflected in both company’s products. It is therefore a logical step for us to continue to write our racing history together in the upcoming DTM season.”

Ulrich Fritz, team principal Mercedes-AMG DTM Team: “The racing spirit common to the two brands is now also visible on our respective racing machines and is symbolic of the desire of both parties to be the best in their respective series. The involvement of an Italian racing legend like MV Agusta is another powerful reason to look forward to the upcoming 2015 DTM season.”
