2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R Review
Autocar - The hardcore Mercedes-AMG GT R is aimed squarely at the Porsche 911 GT3. For now, it's the most focussed performance car Mercedes-AMG builds - more power, less weight and a stiffer chassis setup make it faster and more athletic than lesser AMG GTs.
Doug DeMuro - The Mercedes-AMG GTR is the ultimate Mercedes-Benz. Today I'm reviewing the 2018 AMG GTR and I'm showing you why this $200,000 sports car is the ultimate Mercedes.
Carfection - Mercedes-AMG has given the GT more go, stripped some weight out and made it more hardcore. Can it compete with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS?
Car Advice - The most hardcore road-going GT in the AMG range, the R is a snarling, bellowing beast. Test driving it on-track is a proper test of both machine and driver.
Overdrive - Are three laps around a 5km long racetrack enough to judge a 585PS sportscar? Maybe not. But it is enough for us to tell you that the AMG GT R is fast and ready to bite back when poked the wrong way.
