Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R launches in India at a price tag of Rs. 2.23 Crore. The AMG GT R is a more powerful version of the AMG GT sports car.
The boys at Affalterbach have given the standard AMG GT a high performance makeover. As a result, the car now launched as AMG GT R has taken a spot in the top ten at the Green Hell a.k.a the Nurburgring and closer to home, it has broken the lap record at the Buddh International Circuit by over 2 seconds.
This high speed is a result of new moveable aero bits. Their addition to the car has increased the car’s ability to stick to the ground. This includes a moveable floor as well as a new diffuser. Also, to this package a bespoke Michelins and rear-wheel steering assist are added.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 has been re-tuned to produce 578bhp/699Nm of torque with power going to the rear wheels via a seven-speed AMG speed shift transmission. There is every possible driving assistance including a nine stage traction control which will allow you to access the car’s abilities at different stages. In order to match the GT, all the luxury trimmings are kept same like the touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, leather seats and a decent boot to keep your luggage. The performance coupe gets a star compact service package of Rs 92,000 and 1.6 lakhs for three years.
It will be competing against the Porsche 911 GT3 which is also a car of similar lineage.
