Release date: November 2016
From the world's most demanding racetrack comes the new spearhead of the AMG range – the AMG GT R.
A vehicle designed with fast laps firmly in mind, the third member of the AMG GT family is packed with more motorsport technology than ever before. Primed for the racetrack and yet perfected for the road, it leads the field with cutting edge technology and unmistakable style.
At its sporting heart lies one of the most advanced AMG engines ever built: the AMG 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8. With 700 Nm of torque on tap, this compact, 585 hp unit delivers brutal power with exhilarating precision. Launching from 0–62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, the road-going sports car can reach a staggering 198 mph.
But even at high speed, the AMG GT R remains rooted to the road with an all-new active aerodynamics profile, which sucks the car onto the tarmac and reduces the front-axle lift. And for the first time on a Mercedes-AMG, standard-fit active rear-wheel steering offers an ideal balance of agility and stability.
Exhilarating dynamics are paired with flawless looks. From the first glance the range-topping AMG GT R captures your imagination with a sensuous, taught bodyshell – lightweight in construction and meticulously sculpted in form.
Equally eye-catching is the new exclusive colour, AMG green hell magno, which is linked to the "Green Hell" nickname for the legendary "North Loop" of the Nurburgring racetrack.
To indulge your senses further, there are new optional AMG Performance forged wheels in matt black with yellow brake callipers and exclusive AMG sports bucket seats upholstered in nappa leather.
The Mercedes-AMG GT R is on sale now.
