AMG GT R Not Quite A Beast ?

Now this isn't to say that it's not an amazing performance vehicle. This is taking the title to the literal sense of it. It's not quite a handful.

As crazy as this may sound to some of you I still think there's more than can be done and Brabus is a good example. I won't expect Mercedes to take it up a notch, too risky on that scale unless they're willing to take that loss in ROI.

Just a look at the AMG GT S they tuned makes me wonder what's possible for the GT R...

I really can't disagree with that. That is absolutely gorgeous. The rear diffusor alone does it for me. There's always going to be more that can be done, but it just has to come from a reputable tuning company. I'm sure someone's going to come along and replace those turbos and really draw out some power from it.

Just enough power is what matters, not sure what else Brabus has in mind for power but the 600 is adequate for most.

But back on that beast part, on the AMG GT R as it comes stock, no one serious about buying is asking that question.

Similar to the 911 GT3 RS... no one cares that its not as cool on the inside as other cars you can get for that money. There's just a lot of things that don't matter which publications try to push.
