If Darth Vader had a car, this would have been it: Mercedes-AMG GT RR

Article by Christian A., on May 15, 2016

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.

This was done to comply with the GT3 rules. The AMG GT RR is up for its debut this year at Japan’s Super GT series to be held at the Okayama International Circuit. The Mercedes AMG GT RR looks a lot like the love child of a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and a Pagani Zonda Revolution.

We’re not saying that it actually is but just imagine how the two race cars fit well enough to be the proud parents of the AMG GT RR. The AMG GT RR has a characteristically throaty AMG rumble that is unlike any of its Lamborghini or Pagani “parents”. Its unique sound makes it all the more attention grabbing and threatening especially as it winds its way in the race track. The AMG GT RR is also dressed to kill – draped in black carbon fiber, the AMG GT RR looks like it could be the last of any race car that crosses its way.

Along the race track, the AMG GT RR looks a lot like a death god gliding and looking for its next prey. The presence of an ominous character in the form of the Mercedes AMG GT RR in a GT series is reason enough for GT series fans to get giddy. The Mercedes AMG GT RR is a race car that can be both feared and loved in the race track. Let’s all watch out for this sleek death god in the race tracks, shall we?
