Mercedes-AMG’s GT R is simply reaching showrooms right here within the
United States, however a much bigger, badder and presumably quicker
model of the Affalterbach tuner’s standalone sports activities automobile has
been noticed testing on the Nürburgring.
The automobile is sort of sure to be the GT Black Collection, which AMG
boss Tobias Moers has stated will likely be
prepared on the market in 2018. This implies we’ll seemingly see it
launched as a 2019 mannequin.
Creating a Black Collection mannequin isn’t nearly dialing up the

weight discount, race-bred suspension, and a suitably angrier
look. The automobile within the video seems even wider than the
already-wide GT R, and we are able to see new flics on the entrance bumper
and a bigger wing on the rear.
You possibly can rely on extra energy, too. AMG’s four.Zero-liter
twin-turbocharged V-Eight delivers 603 horsepower and 664
pound-feet within the newest E63 and S63 tremendous sedans, and such an
output needs to be greater than ample to fling in regards to the GT Black
Collection. The GT R is at the moment the
quickest rear-wheel-drive manufacturing automobile across the ‘Ring,
and it solely has 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Within the automobile’s cross hairs will likely be
Porsche’s new 911 GT2 RS. Just about each different 911
variant is outclassed by the GT R, so we wouldn’t be shocked
if the GT Black Collection has what it takes to dethrone the
