Mercedes-AMG GT R Rumoured - 425kW Halo Car Due Late 2016?
Externally, the AMG GT R will boast an enlarged central air intake, revised side ducting along with vented front fenders, more aggressively flared rear fenders, a front splitter and a fixed carbon fibre rear wing.
The AMG GT R's upper grille will also mimic that of its race-going sibling, the AMG GT3, with 15 vertical chrome bars rather than the standard GT's single horizontal bar and "diamond mesh" grille.
At the back, a central-exit exhaust will be framed by a reshaped rear bumper incorporating a horizontal air duct to help cool the rear-mounted ransmission, plus a downforce-generating diffuser.
Suspension will also be unique to the GT R, with a track-oriented calibration to make the most of its extra power and aero downforce. Zero to 100km/h sprint times are still secret, but expect it to be markedly faster than the standard AMG GT S' 3.8-second 0-100km/h claim.
