While most people associate the average Mercedes-Benz vehicle with luxury and class, the discerning automotive fanatic knows that their AMG division is synonymous with high-powered performance. If you’re not familiar with their in-house tuner, however, it’s time to get acquainted via their impressive new track-ready 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro.
In case you haven’t gathered it from this car’s menacingly low and wide stance, this beast was made to go fast. In fact, it features a V8 Biturbo powerplant that’s good for a monstrous 577 horsepower, giving it a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198mph. That performance couples beautifully with a suite of new features, including a lightweight carbon fiber construction (including the wheels, roof, spoiler, mirrors, etc.), finely-tuned aerodynamics for increased downforce, an adjustable coil-over suspension you can tune to suit your track of choice, and more. The German automaker will also be releasing two other road-going versions, the standard GT and the GTC, albeit with lesser performance figures. Pricing and availability have yet to be unveiled.
