The Mercedes AMG GT-R takes on a front-mid-engine concept with transaxle and twin-turbo V-8 engine, rated at 430 kW/585 hp, as well as an extensively modified suspension, new aerodynamics and an intelligent lightweight construction. These features attribute to an especially dynamic driving experience. Even from afar, the exclusive “AMG green hell magno” special paintwork leaves no doubt as to the sports car’s origin, having spent most of its development time in the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Furthermore, wider front and rear wings allow an increased track width for optimum grip and even higher cornering speeds.

The new front fascia with active elements, the large rear aerofoil and the new rear fascia with double diffuser enhance aerodynamic efficiency and help ensure optimum grip. in addition, the lightweight forged wheels shod with cup tyres as standard are likewise designed for maximum driving dynamics. The same applies to other new features such as the active rear-wheel steering, the nine-way adjustable traction control system and the adjustable coil-over suspension with additional electronic control.

Mercedes-AMG continues to grow and is expanding the top end of its product range with the introduction of the new AMG GT R. “Our sports-car and performance brand AMG has its roots in motorsport and, ever since its formation, has repeatedly faced up to the competition on the racetrack. These genes are particularly prevalent in the new AMG GT R. Boasting a wealth of technological innovations, the new top-of-the-range model is proof of the close collaboration between our constructors of racing cars and road-going vehicles,” stated Professor Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Group Research and Mercedes‑Benz Cars Development.

What is more, the new AMG Panamericana grille emphasizes the unique standing of the AMG GT R. Its characteristic form with vertical fins celebrated its world première on the Mercedes-AMG GT3 customer-sport racing car and now for the first time features on an AMG production vehicle.
