Sourcing research and development from its very successful formula one team, mercedesAMG packed the latest from motorsport technology into its latest ’AMG GT R’. the front mid-engine concept with a twin-turbo V8 engine outputting 585 HP, the extensively modified suspension, the adapted aerodynamics and the lightweight construction lay the foundations for an intense dynamic driving experience.
Dubbed the ‘green hell’ for its exclusive color, the car has a wider front and rear wing that allows an increased track width for optimum grip and even higher cornering speeds. the lightweight forged wheels shod with cup tires are designed for maximum driving dynamics. this feature also applies to the vehicel’s active rear steering, nine-way adjustable traction control system, and coil-over suspension with additional electronic control.
The third member of the ‘AMG GT’ family is the new spearhead of the AMG model range. figures such as 3.6 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and a top speed of 318 km/h, combined with the driving dynamics, will undoubtedly translate into extremely fast laps on the racetrack.
