Mercedes-AMG GT R Spied Ahead of Goodwood Debut



Hot on the heels of Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers' announcement that the Mercedes-AMG GT R will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a prototype was spotted testing in Southern Europe.

The model will take inspiration from the Mercedes-AMG GT3 and features a new front fascia, a revised grille, and sportier side skirt. The AMG GT R will be equipped with a conter-mounted exhaust, a sporty rear diffuser, and a large rear wing.

Performance specs have not been detailed by Mercedes yet, but it is expected that the model will be powered by an upgraded biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops 550 horsepower. That should make the Mercedes-AMG GT R faster than the Mercedes-AMG GT S, and that's before we even consider the rumored weight reduction of around 175 pounds.

See the Mercedes AMG GT R debut on June 23rd at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Also expect to see a Black Series variant of the GT in the future.

Crazy tire profile, looks like those rears are pushing into the 300 barrier or breaking it. At least we know there's a good chance it will have the levels of grip it will indeed need.

I'm interested to see how that grille looks without the camo.

Judging from the pattern it should look very mean. As for color i'm sure it will be in black since that's typically what sporty cars have grilles and trim in, very to little chrome if any.
