Weistec's 670 HP AMG GT S @ the Drag Strip




Check out this video a tuned AMG GT S doing the quarter mile in just 10.8 seconds. The trap speed was recorded at 203.26 km/h.

That time makes it one of the fastest runs in the world done by one of the models built by Mercedes-Benz.

Here are the upgrades that the AMG GT S saw. Horsepower went from 503 to 670, while torque went from 479 lb-ft to 755 lb-ft.

Quote:
“We couldn’t be happier with our AMG GT-S’s performance at the track,” said Steve Atneyel, Director of Software Development for Weistec. “One of the most impressive aspects of this test was that these runs were done back to back on a day with high ambient temperatures and we didn’t have any issues. We are excited to see how much quicker this car will go once it is equipped with our turbocharger upgrade.”

That's just killer, too bad we won't be seeing many AMG GT's on the track and pulling off tunes like this... at least for the first years.

I'm expecting to see more of this kind of stuff. Why wouldn't we see more of this?

My question as well...why would we not see more of this?

I am really looking forward to getting a more aggressive tune in my GTS.

Have you fished around and actually considered any options yet, or are you waiting for more to become available before you start looking?

Just waiting for the tunes to mature.
Plus, it looks like I will be swapping out for a 2017 model when they are available.

Now someone needs to throw a turbo on one of these... starting to think what it will sound like with that application and of course.. it's good.
