The F1 Safety Car, which is a Mercedes AMG GT R, will also carry the anniversary signet.
“AMG is synonymous with racing and high-performance”, said Mercedes CEO and Team Principal Toto Wolff.
“For 55 years they have been at the forefront of pushing what is possible on four wheels, both on the racetrack and the road. I look forward to getting out on track in the Red Pig this afternoon, an icon in motorsport history.”
Mercedes has previously used celebration liveries, as it ran a retro livery at the 2019 German Grand Prix to commemorate its 125th year in motor racing, as well as its 200th F1 start.
The team enters the second half of the season awaiting its first win of the 2022 campaign, following a difficult start to the sport’s new era.
However, it has improved its form of late, scoring podiums at the previous six grand prix weekends.
