Mercedes unveiled its new DTM challenger for the 2016 season at Frankfurt International Motor Show and wants it to be a championship winning car.
"We present the new generation DTM car," said head of Mercedes motorsports Toto Wolff.
"This is the first preview of what will hopefully be a fast race car."
Mercedes DTM team principal Ulrich Fritz shares Wolff's enthusiasm: "We want to win a lot of races with this car and eventually, of course, we want to fight for the championship, too."
The brand chose DTM leader Pascal Wehrlein to unveil the new C 63 on stage.
"Of course, it's an honor for me to present this new car," Wehrlein said. "I think the car is well-born. Now I hope it's as fast as it looks."
The new DTM car will take to the track for the first time during winter testing.
