CREA­TURE FEA­TURE Ride in Mercedes-AMG’s pin­na­cle of mo­tor­sports.

They call it ‘The Beast of the Green Hell’, not be­cause of its stun­ning paint job but be­cause the Mercedes-AMG GT R spent most of its de­vel­op­ment time on the Nür­bur­gring race­track, which is nick­named ‘The Green Hell’. Built specif­i­cally to burn rub­ber on the race­track, the GT R is the new spear­head of the AMG model range, go­ing from 0 to 100km/ h in 3.6 sec­onds, with a top speed of 318km/ h. Pack­ing in an AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo en­gine, ev­ery­thing from the steer­ing to the sus­pen­sion has been tweaked to give you the best times on the race­track.

The in­te­rior, too, is in­spired by mo­tor­sports: AMG Per­for­mance seats comes as stan­dard, while ex­tremely light, man­u­ally ad­justable AMG sports bucket seats up­hol­stered in nappa leather and DI­NAM­ICA mi­crofiber are avail­able as an ex­clu­sive, track-fo­cused op­tion. Also stan­dard is the AMG In­te­rior Night pack­age, where the shift pad­dles, steer­ing wheel bezel, door sills and boot cross mem­ber are fin­ished in high-gloss black, which com­bines with the stan­dard-spec­i­fi­ca­tion AMG In­te­rior Piano Lac­quer pack­age to fur­ther em­pha­sise sporti­ness.
