MERCEDES AMG GT R

GQ (Australia) - - MOTOR -

EX­PECTED DELIVERY: JULY 2017 PRICE: EST. $375,000 SPECS: 4.0-LITRE TWIN-TUR­BOCHARGED V8; 430kw, 700Nm, 0 TO 100km/h IN 3.6 SEC­ONDS Just in case you can’t tell by look­ing at its out­ra­geously ag­gres­sive styling, this new GT R is a se­ri­ous ma­chine. In fact, it’s the most po­tent road car Mercedes-benz’s tun­ing house, AMG, has ever re­leased, which is a daunt­ing thought. Built on the al­ready ex­treme Porsche 911-bait­ing GT S, this R ver­sion adds even more power, track-ready tech­nol­ogy (like four-wheel steer­ing and nine-stage trac­tion con­trol), loads of car­bon fi­bre to make it lighter and a mas­sive rear wing. Check its face, and be afraid, very afraid.
