AMG GT R Early Teaser

With Goodwood coming up later this month (June 26th), Mercedes decided they would release a little teaser which includes 2 videos. Titled "The Beast of the Green ****", the videos definitely leave you on the edge of your seat. I am darn excited for this. Check the videos out below.

I just really hope green isn't the only color, but others, white being one of them. But color won't be much of a concern for most owners since the cost of wrapping won't phase many.

I really wonder why they chose green. Using a red would have been nice and appealing. Myself included, not fan of the green either. But you're right, with the popularity of wrapping these days, that'll be the simple solution.

Am I the only one who thought of the Hulk after reading the "The Beast of the Green"?

I definitely think that is what they were gearing towards. That name defines the Hulk pretty much.

Mercedes released some more "teased" information. Some performance specs and a few green light photos lol

Quote:
the new production model will come with a front-mid mounted V8 Biturbo engine, which is mated to a transaxle transmission. No surprises so far, except for the new power level, bumped to 577 HP (430 kW) and 516 lb-ft. (700 Nm)

Mercedes-AMG has also modified the undercarriage of the car, and the engineers have made significant aerodynamic improvements.

The model has also been improved to reduce weight

Concerning performance, Mercedes-AMG has revealed that the new GT R will be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds. Top speed is rated at 318 km/h (198 mph)

new exclusive color, called “AMG Green **** Magno.”

In terms of power, the Black Series is still a few years away.

0 to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds is pretty darn swift. I wonder what the power to weight ratio is looking like at this point considering they upped the horsepower and dropped some weight.

Here's a video released yesterday. Only 4 seconds long, but Extremely effective I'm sure you can't listen to it just once

Crazy to think that's just how it sounds stock. Just imagine what a brand like Brabus can do with it as they do with many MB's although in the end a Brabus AMG GT R will be way up their in price.
