The Mercedes-AMG GT R is a coupe that was introduced in 2017 as a high-performance variant of the Mercedes-AMG GT. The 2020 models receive modest updates that include a new exterior bodywork and new digital instrumentation. The GT R will come in three flavors: the “standard” coupe, a roadster, and the limited-edition GT R PRO.
Both trims will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic gearbox. The faster GT R Pro model will use upgraded aerodynamics, chassis tuning, and suspension changes to become much faster on the track. The GT R Roadster offers the lure of open-top driving and comes with special appearance touches elsewhere to set it apart.
The GT R competes with other powerful cars like the McLaren 570GT and the Porsche 911 GT3. Prices will start at $162,900 and Roadster models start at just over $190,000. We don’t yet have pricing for the GT R Pro but expect prices to reach over $200,000. The GT R is expected to go on sale in summer 2019.
