The Mercedes AMG GT R is set to be released to the world at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June. It will come complete with a 4.0litre twin turbo V8 engine giving out 570bhp.
The GT R will be more aggressive and track focused that than of the GT with a tuned chassis and track focussed tyres. Prices are not yet set but apparently will be quite far past the £110,000 price of the Mercedes AMG GT.
They have also shed weight with the GT R wherever possible. AMG insiders hint that weight has dropped by up to 60kg, suggesting it will hit the scales at around 1520kg in production trim.
We will be going and covering the Goodwood Festival of Speed and this is one car that is definitely on our radar and cant wait to finally see this in the flesh.
