2018 Mercedes Benz AMG GT R finished in Selenite Grey Magno
2018 Mercedes Benz AMG GT R finished in Selenite Grey Magno with Black Nappa Dinamica exclusive interior with Yellow Contrast Stitching.
The AMG GT R is by no means your average AMG GT. This R version is all business and designed to compete with Porsche’s GT3 RS. And it does!!
AMG is a longtime purveyor of excess horsepower, but its greatest strength still lies in its engines, however, here taking the form of a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8. At 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, the GT R’s dry-sump powerplant produces 74 horsepower and 37 lb-ft of torque more than the GT S model. Boost, which increases from 17.4 to 19.6 psi, is a big part of that equation. A drop in compression from 10.5:1 to 9.5:1 helps accommodate the boost increase. The two BorgWarner turbos housed in the engine’s valley get bigger compressor wheels, and the cylinder heads’ exhaust ports are milled to improve flow. But the engine changes are just the beginning.
The transmission has altered ratios with a much taller first gear and shorter ratios in second through seventh gears allowing better handling through tight corners.
Those carbon front fenders accommodate a 1.8-inch-wider front track while the rear increases 2.3 inches. Forged wheels increase one inch in width relative to the GT S (19 by 10 inches in front, 20 by 12 at the rear). Confirming its status as a track special are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Additional factory equipment includes the AMG Carbon Ceramic Brake system, RXC 19″/20″ 5 Twin Spoke Forged Alloy Wheels, AMG Illuminated Door Sills, Yellow Seat Belts, Distronic Plus, Exclusive Interior Trim, Burmester High End Surround Sound System, AMG Carbon Fiber Exterior Trim Package, Convenience Package, Exclusive Interior Package, AMG Carbon Fiber Front Splitter, Rear Diffuser, Fins in Fender Outlets and much more.
This is a beautifully equipped GT R and one of the best buys in the Super Car market.
