Initially teased with cleverly shrouded images, the Mercedes-AMG GT R was finally revealed at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Draped in a loud green scheme that pays homage to its development home, the Green Hell, the AMG GT R is the hardcore track-oriented version of the AMG GT. Powered by a 585PS version of the same 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, the Mercedes-AMG GT R sprints to 100kmph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds and goes on to a top whack of 318kmph. Weight has been cut down by 15kg over the AMG GT S, thanks to carbon-fibre construction, while the reworked suspension helps with handling. Its underbody active aero and a fixed rear wing increase the downforce, which in turn ensures maximum cornering speeds. Take a look at the new Mercedes-AMG GT R down below.
