Mercedes GT R Performance | Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R Design

The AMG design is the basis for the more expressive overall appearance and the very distinct look of the Mercedes-AMG GT R. Form follows function, and function supports form: All elements have an inherent technical benefit and contribute to the enhanced driving dynamics, while the aerodynamics experts have made the designers' wishes a reality. The design of the AMG GT R embodies sensual purity - hot & cool. 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. The new AMG grille emphasizes the unique standing of the AMG® GT R and goes back to the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL racing car from the 1952 Panamericana road race. The third member of the AMG GT family is the new spearhead of the AMG model range. Featuring pioneering technologies, the AMG GT R was designed with racetrack use firmly in mind. Figures such as 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph, combined with the outstanding driving dynamics, will undoubtedly translate into extremely fast laps on the racetrack.

Distinguishing features of the AMG GT R are what make is stand out even more than the AMG Green Hell Mango color of the car. It's all in the details from the grille to the exhaust. A small air outlet is incorporated between the tail lamps for additional dissipation of the heat generated by the rear silencer. A further distinguishing feature of the AMG GT R is the large exhaust tip with center spar, which is in located in the center of the rear fascia. It is flanked by two more black exhaust tips on the left and right in the diffuser. The large rear wing is rigidly mounted on the hatch and increases the downforce on the rear axle. The aerofoil mounts are painted in the vehicle color whereas the blade is finished in high-gloss black. Depending on the driving conditions or type of driving, the precise angle of the blade can be adjusted manually.

Under the hood, the AMG 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine produces a monstrous 585 hp, 75 more than its GT S predecessor while the peak torque is available between 1,900 and 5,500 rpm. The V-8 engine features the tried-and-tested twin turbochargers, which are not mounted on the outside of the cylinder banks but rather inside the V configuration - called a "hot inside V" by the AMG experts. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission configured in a transaxle layout at the rear axle has been extensively revised by the AMG engineers to make the transmission even more suitable for the racetrack. The driver can tailor the AMG GT R to Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual driving modes to fit their personal driving preferences by using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller. The "RACE" mode optimally adjusts the shift strategy of the dual clutch transmission to the needs of racetrack usage.

It re-defines the ultimate driving machine. Every detail from the "jet-engine like" air intakes from the facia to the design of the wheels allows you to push the Beast of the Green Hell to the absolute limit. The lightweight design of the wheels reduces the weight, the rotatory mass and the unsprung masses. The wheel suspension and steering deliver even more precise response, all of which also has a positive effect on the chassis and suspension control systems. The wheels afford a clear view of the massive rotors and AMG brake calipers, which are painted in yellow exclusively for the AMG GT R. New side sill panels give the vehicle an even lower stance on the road, while inserts in high-gloss black set an individual tone. The same applies to the high-gloss black caps on the housings of the door mirrors. The AMG GT R comes as standard with a roof made of high-grade carbon to underscore the high-contrast look of the vehicle.

Step inside and you will see luxury and motorsports converge in a beautiful interior. Extremely light, manually adjustable AMG sports bucket seats upholstered in Nappa leather and DINAMICA microfiber come standard and offer the necessary lateral support in the most extreme driving conditions. The optional yellow seat belts, dials with yellow highlights, the AMG Interior Piano Lacquer package and special controls, including those for the new AMG TRACTION CONTROL, underline the unique standing of the new AMG GT R. Four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at the right and left ends of the dashboard reinforce this impression. In conjunction with the high beltlines, the concave-shaped door panelling and the dynamic centre console, the AMG GT R comes across as the ultimate driving machine and consummately integrates the driver into the cockpit thanks to the low seat position.

The shape of the dominant center console, reminiscent of a NACA air intake, and the authentic materials suggest that it has been adopted directly from motor racing. Positioned centrally, the free-standing central display is another eye-catching feature. Attention to detail is also echoed in the AMG DRIVE UNIT controls which are arranged like the eight cylinders in a V layout. The new AMG Interior Night package also comes as standard and includes paddle shifters, steering wheel bezel, door sills and boot cross member are finished in high-gloss black, which combines with the standard-specification AMG Interior Piano Lacquer package to further emphasis sportiness. As an option, customers can order the trim in matt black carbon fiber as well.
