It sounds fantastic!

The words best used to describe the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GTR are “The beast of the Green Hell”. This beautifully crafted marvel demonstrates AMG’s racing expertise and pushes the limits of dynamic driving even further .

With a top speed of 318 km / hour and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds, there are not many road legal cars faster, quicker and more agile than the Mercedes-AMG GTR.

While my wife reminds me everyday that I am the luckiest man alive, after driving the Mercedes-AMG GTR, I certainly feel that way. The entire experience is truly unmatched. From the engine start sound to exterior / interior acceleration buzz and even the drive by sounds; it is an intense acoustic experience!

I know for many, the Green Hell Magno color is not easy on the eye, but the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GTR is not for the faint-hearted, vanilla lovers anyway. Much more than just for show, every detail is consistently designed for racing performance and keeping in mind the likes and dislikes of motorsport fans.

Through intensive collaboration of aerodynamics and design this high-performance sports car has become an object of desire not many can resist.

On and off the track, the AMG GTR gives its rival manufacturers with even greater racing pedigrees: Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren, Audi a very tough time

Specs:

Engine: 4.0 Liter – 8 Cylinder Bi-Turbo
Horsepower: 576 Bhp
Torque: 700 Nm
Drive System: Rear Wheel Drive
Transmission:  Automatic

Exterior:

High-performance material meets high-performance car.

The carbon-fiber elements for the exterior underline the sporty character of the Mercedes-AMG GT R, and lend the vehicle a sporty and technologically advanced look.

Wherever possible, AMG has used ultralight carbon fiber in the exterior components.

The benefits of the material from the world of motorsport, namely high strength metals combined with low weight, are a perfect match for the AMG philosophy.

The AMG performance exhaust system with flap control combines a formidable sound with low weight. The large, centrally positioned tailpipe trim element and the two outer tailpipes emphasize the affinity with the world of motorsport.

AMG forged wheels in 10-spoke design, black matte finish and rim flange with high-grade finish

Interior:

The cockpit impresses with its high-tech interior. Extremely high-quality materials give it a handcrafted character. A user interface concept with fully digital instruments and a 10.2-inch display. At the center is the new center console with innovative display switches. With the AMG performance steering wheel in exclusive Nappa leather with AMG steering wheel buttons, the vehicle is always under optimal control. It kind of pushes you to go faster!

The Mercedes-AMG GTR is not built for long drives and in my opinion is only to be used either on track days or as a weekend car for short commutes.

Mercedes-AMG GTR Price in UAE: AED 730,000
