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).
The AMG GT R's more than impressive performance is astonishing, and is made more awesome with its nine separate traction control settings. And believe it or not, the automobile is able to adjust the dampers and can individually pick from different driving modes- which makes all the difference in the driving universe. Don't believe that tuning matters? Well, you can view the GT R shredding the Nurburgring Nordschleife complex in just around 7 mins and 10 seconds, which is far more impressive than the Ferrari 488 GTB.
Green lovers far and wide, this is the sports car that you want to get your hands on. The AMG GT R is offered in an all exclusive AMG green hell magno paint scheme which earned it the moniker of "Beast of the Green Hell". The Coupe can also be easily picked out from the rest as it is built with an AMG Panamericana grille influenced by the GT3 race car, and carbon fenders have added 1.8 in of width putting a nice finish to the green beast. The base Coupe has a price tag of $113,395 while the Roadster costs $125,395. The GTS S Coupe is priced at $133,395 and the GT C Roadster costs around $157,995. But if you're loyal to the GT C Coupe, wait for it to debut in the fall for about $145,995.
