The Mercedes-AMG GT was rst-ever fully-de­vel­oped prod­uct from the col­lab­o­ra­tion of the Mercedes-Benz and Af­fal­ter­bach based AMG sports di­vi­sion of Mercedes. The AMG GT was fol­lowed by a faster AMG GT S and now a faster R is in the coun­try, which is also known as the “Beast of the Green Hell” due to its green colour. Mercedes per­formed a speed run of the AMG GT R at the coun­try’s only For­mula One circuit – Buddh In­ter­na­tional Circuit. True to its name and per­for­mance, the GT R clocked the fastest ever lap time by a pro­duc­tion car at the circuit, a time of 2 min­utes and 09.853 sec­onds. The speed test was con­ducted by FMSCI the AMG GT R was driven on the track by AMG Driver Chris­tian Ho­henadel.
