The Mercedes-AMG GT R is a Demon Straight from the Green Hell



Quote:
As expected, the Mercedes-AMG GT R has been introduced as a demonic spawn from the Green Hell.

Mercedes-AMG claims that never in its history has it packed a production vehicle with more motorsport technology than whatís found in the GT R. And it might be hard to argue, despite the fact that the SLS AMG does live in the history books. Developed at the world famous Nurburgring, which is also known as The Green Hell, the Mercedes-AMG GT R features a V8 biturbo engine rated at 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Thatís 74 more ponies and 37 more twist than the already impressive Mercedes-AMG GT S.

But thereís a lot more to the AMG GT R than just what lurks under the hood. The suspension has been extensively modified, the aerodynamics are new and an adjustable AMG Traction Control system has been implemented that is derived from the AMG GT3 race car.

Although the horsepower and torque figures will carry over to the U.S., Mercedes-AMG has not revealed the final weight for the U.S. model. But in Europe, the Mercedes-AMG GT R tips the scales at 3,428 pounds allowing it to go from zero-to-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, while top speed is set at 198 mph. The AMG GT S in comparison does the same sprint in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 193 mph. The 4.0-liter V8 powerplant is mated to the same seven-speed AMG SpeedShift DCT found in theAMG GT and GT S models.
