After the unveiling of the Mercedes-AMG GT R in the midyear of 2016, the German automaker is at last revealing this exclusive green beast priced at $157,995. They will roll out this summer, and Mercedes-AMG announced that it will only produce 2,000 units worldwide. Those who are willing to dish out this amount of money must move quickly before these mean machines will be sold out.
The 3rd of kin and the most impressive member of the AMG GT clan boasts of pure power and decreased weight for dynamic performances. It is worth the wait after all, since the expert engineers from Affalterbach have managed to take off some load from the sports car and at the same time squeezed more power from the biturbo 4.0 L V8 engine to make the Coupe a worthy adversary in its league. The biturbo V8 can produce a whopping 577 hP (430 kW) and 516 lb-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque, delivering 74 hp abd 37 lb-ft more compared to the S model.
A 7-speed dual clutch gearbox delivers the torque directly to the rear axle. Its first gear currently has a longer ratio, and the 7th gear has a shortened one to empower a far more better acceleration. The German automaker remarked that the GT R Coupe can accelerate up to 60 miles/hour (97 km/hour) in only 3.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of up to 198 mph(319 kph), which is 0.2 second more quicker that its S version predecessor . Weight-wise, the new AMG GT R weighs at around 3,428 lbs (1,554 kg)- which makes it lighter than the S version (90 kg less).Read the entire article 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R rolls out this summer in US, see final pricing details here

Be prepared, Porsche! Mercedes-Benz is going all-out with its newest and sportiest model so far – the new Mercedes-AMG GT R. With its sporty yet very elegant design as well as the power lurking under its aggressively shaped bonnet, the new Mercedes-AMG GT R is poised to capture the hearts of those who believe that luxury could also sportily dynamic.

Each time tuning company G-Power unveils its work, we could expect a tuned car that is significantly more potent than the standard unit it was based on. This has been the case for several of BMW’s high-performance cars – all of which were made more powerful by the incredible tuning work of G-Power.
The latest of G-Power’s works include, however, another German premium carmaker – Mercedes-Benz. For its latest project, G-Power has picked the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car. In the non-tuned form, the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the AMG GT sports car only delivers 462 hp of max output and 600 Nm (440 lb-ft.) of peak torque.
This level of power already allows the AMG GT sports car to do a very quick sprint, accelerating from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.0 seconds while reaching a limited top speed of 189 mph. For many, this level of performance is already incredible. But the people at G-Power knew they could improve the dynamics of this engine and make the AMG GT sports car a better performer.Read the entire article G-Power Mercedes-AMG GT delivers 610 hp of output and 755 Nm of torque
The man sitting at the top of the performance division of Mercedes-Benz – Tobias Moers – cryptically indicated that the Mercedes-AMG GT4 could be really coming.
Moers, chief executive of Mercedes-AMG, was answering several questions from Australian automotive Web site Motoring when he gave an ambiguous declaration about the AMG GT4. When pressed to respond to speculations of an upcoming AMG GT4, Moers replied that rumors are not necessarily wrong.
Based on his enigmatic statement, we can surmise that some of the rumored details are true and others aren’t. So, what information – rumors or not – do we have so far about this high-performance premium sedan that would serve as AMG’s new range topper?Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG big boss Tobias Moers drops heavy hints about AMG GT4

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL is reportedly to share the same platform with an Mercedes-AMG GT. Not exactly the one you’ve seen on the photos that have previously surfaced on the Internet. Speculations developed after a supposedly shorter SL Coupe was caught being tested at the Green Hell several weeks ago. But recent reports suggest otherwise.
Autocar says that Mercedes-Benz is now considering an AMG GT platform and will likely come with four types of engines. It is also believed that the SL65 and SL600’s V12 engines may no longer be included in their options. This is probably because of the stricter guidelines with regard to emissions.
Instead, there’s going to be a choice between the E63’s 603hp 5.5 litre V8 twin turbocharger, a couple of turbocharged 6-cylinders with either 450hp or 402 hp and a 470hp 4.0 litre V8.Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL will share platform with the AMG GT
Since its release in 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT has been one of the favorite cars of tuners around the world, especially those from Germany.

Mercedes-AMG finally races along with other car manufacturers in the GT4 category. Since there’s an increasing trend for this segment, we think they’ve made it just in time along with Ford, Porsche, McLaren and also BMW.

Who are the world’s bravest test drivers? They may be those testing high-speed racing prototypes on a circuit. Or they may be those assessing the agility of test cars on high-speed corners deep in the mountains.
But for German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz, the bravest test drivers in the world don’t even have a driving license. In fact, they are more than a decade away from the age when they could get their driving license.
The world’s bravest test drivers are toddlers, and Mercedes-Benz got the perfect test car for them, recently unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. For Mercedes-Benz, a small child is never too young is experience a bit of luxury and sportiness. The brand proved this point literally by introducing the new Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car -- a new, single-seater sports car designed particularly for small kids.Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Cars are built for toddlers
Mercedes-AMG is currently making great waves in the automotive scene. The German automaker Mercedes-Benz’s high performance division has been creating some of the most superb cars; however, this year, it has brought to the world another string of surprises. And guess what? It’s everything that comes at par (or even better) than its previous models.
Earlier this year, we were introduced to the Green Hell baby that was the Mercedes-AMG GT R. The “green hell magno” colored AMG GT R was developed at the famous Nurburgring racetrack, particularly at the Green Hell, where its twin-turbo V8 was tested to its limits.
It comes with 585 horses and around 516 lb.-ft. of torque. Aside from its engine, it is even made stronger because of its front-mid-engine concept with transaxle, an extensively modified suspension, new aerodynamics and is aided by its intelligent lightweight construction. It also comes with wider front and rear wings which give it an increased track width allowing optimum grip and higher cornering speeds. It also has standard lightweight forged wheels with cup tyres perfect for maximum driving dynamics.Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG introduces two new roadster variants - the AMG GT and GT C
Come to think of it, the Mercedes-AMG GT R could be considered one of the most dynamic cars that the premium carmaker has created. Now, a sportier model – filled to the brim with technologies derived from motorsport – has been introduced: the new Mercedes-AMG GT R.
It is of note as well that the suspension system featured on the new AMG GT R is also systematically designed to be used on the racetrack. Mercedes-AMG ensured that suspension components -- steering knuckles, wishbones and hub carriers on the front and rear axle – have lower unsprung masses produced from forged aluminum. The double-wishbone concept on the AMG GT R firmly locates the wheel and come with the least elastic movements.
Thanks to the high camber and toe-in stability results, the AMG GT R could race through a corner even at high speeds and the driver gets a better feel of the road during cornering at the extreme limits.Read the entire article Green racetrack monster Mercedes-AMG GT R unveiled to the public
Back in 2014, Mercedes-Benz’s high performance division, the Mercedes-AMG GmbH (AMG in short), debuted a two-door two-seat grand tourer coupe that was built to challenge the Porsche 911. Unveiled to the public during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the Mercedes-AMG GT was built to last in a faceoff with its arch nemesis, the Porsche 911.
The Mercedes-AMG GT has two performance options: the standard GT and the high performance GT S. Both cars run on the same 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine except that the GT is slightly less powerful with 469 horsepower and 433 lb.-ft. torque on tap while the GT S has 503 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. torque. Of course, since there is a difference in power, there is also a slight difference in the acceleration time.
The GT can sprint through 60 mph in 3.9 seconds while the GT S can go in only 3.7 seconds – only a 0.2 second difference. Moreover, the GT can hit a top speed of only 202 mph, 8 mph slower than that of the 210 mph on the GT S.Read the entire article 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R raises the bar, now ready for Goodwood debut
If Darth Vader had a car, then he would have looked at the Mercedes-AMG GT RR and considered it the perfect choice. No, scratch that. If EVIL had a car, then THIS would probably be it. And if Mercedes had an evil child, it probably would have come in the form of the AMG GT RR. The Mercedes-AMG GT RR is the GT3 racing version of the Mercedes-AMG GT.
If looks can kill then the GT RR would probably be the most sinister of them all. Its appearance is a perfect mirror of the fictional character from Star Wars, the Darth Vader, which exudes both elegance and an ominous character.
It looks like it’s something out of a horror film or some thriller movie because the look of the AMG GT3 itself sends chills down your spine. Based on Mercedes’ AMG GT supercar, the GT RR is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 that was taken from the older SLS model.Read the entire article If Darth Vader had a car, this would have been it: Mercedes-AMG GT RR
