German tuner Renntech boosts output of Mercedes-AMG GT R to 825 hp

If The Hulk were to be a car, what would it be? Well, you might want to check out this Mercedes-AMG GT R that is just as green and powerful as the angry monster. But before we get to that, let us first talk about the standard Mercedes-AMG GT which is available in a handful of variations. The standard version is the GT Coupe, pumping out a respectable 469 horsepower (349 kilowatts).

There is also the GT C, which focuses more on performance and has as much as 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts). Meanwhile, the range-topping model would be the track-ready GT R, with the ability to deliver 577 horsepower (430 kilowatts). And last but not the least is the four-door GT. But even with those options, one German tuning shop thinks that the AMG GT could use more power.

So going back to the mean, green AMG GT R that Renntech offers as an upgrade. They enabled it to deliver between 612 and 825 horsepower (456 and 615 kilowatts), depending on the trim. The latter of the two is dubbed as the AMG GT R825. This does not only have more power, but also has a torque of 626 pound feet (850 Newton metres). The extra power is attributed to the larger turbo, paired with a software upgrade, blow off valves, and high flow air filter, among others. Of course, expect the transmission as well as the clutch to cope with the change.

Mercedes-Benz gives us another teaser of the four-door GT Coupe ahead of its Geneva debut

After weeks or months of speculating about the name of the new Mercedes-Benz performance sedan, it’s finally revealed. The four door vehicle that will make its premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month is the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe. Even as the teaser images show the model in camouflage, these are still much clearer than previous ones.

At the same time that the company released this statement, it also published three photos of the four-door. Like I said earlier, the sedan’s appearance is camouflaged like that of earlier test mules. Nevertheless, we can make out several of its features.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe got most of its design elements from the 2017 Mercedes AMG Concept that we saw last year wearing a metallic red coat. Both vehicles have the similar wide grille and vertical slats with a trio of large inlets in the front fascia. There is also a steep A pillar that leads back to a flowing roof and rounded tail. In the rear, there is an active spoiler that can deploy from the back. Overall, its design makes it look both sporty and sleek.

G-Power Mercedes-AMG GT delivers 610 hp of output and 755 Nm of torque

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.

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.

This would be Cigarette Racing Team’s most powerful “open performance” boat and will be on display alongside the Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Mercedes-AMG has always been known for stunning designs, highly-advanced racing technology and high-performance cars. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 is the pinnacle of this racing car heritage and was built to comply with FIA’s GT3 race rules.

The GT3 racecar is based on the older Mercedes-AMG GT S which has the perfect qualities required in a GT3 race: low center of gravity, ideal weight distribution and ample track width. These layout characteristics in the GT S gave the new GT3 racecar its awe-inspiring racing performance today which is characterized by a controlled and accurate and cornering, impressive lateral acceleration, agility, good traction and the ability to rapidly change direction due to its minimal inertia, that it went on to set a new benchmark for its segment.
