Mercedes-AMG have refreshed their entire GT line-up, bringing subtle changes to the styling, chassis tweaks and updated technology. The 4.0L V8 with it's hot-vee turbocharging setup has remained the same with power and torque unchanged throughout the range. That means the GT R has a very healthy 585 PS (430 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) on tap.
The styling changes to the Mercedes-AMG GT R consist of revised nose and headlamps which take inspiration from the recently launched GT Four Door. The rear end has a newly designed diffuser and trapezoidal tailpipes. On the inside the steering wheel has been updated to resemble the version used in the C63, the instrument dials have been replaced with a configurable digital screen and the transmission tunnel controls from the GT Four Door are now present.
"The AMG GT embodies the core of our brand, 'Driving Performance,' in a unique way. At its debut four years ago, it not only turned the heads of customers and sports car enthusiasts, but also created new dimensions in the competitive environment. In order to continue this success story, we have now equipped it with numerous innovations from the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe." says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Management Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
