Mercedes-AMG’s GT R has simply reached showrooms within the
United States, however a much bigger, badder and presumably quicker
model of the Affalterbach tuner’s standalone sports activities automotive has
been noticed testing on the Nürburgring and on some surrounding
The automotive seems to be just like the GT R, however there are clues that recommend
we’re wanting a take a look at mule for one thing much more hardcore.
We’re speaking a few GT Black Sequence, a automotive AMG boss Tobias
Moers has stated can be
prepared on the market in 2018. This implies we’ll seemingly see it
launched as a 2019 mannequin.
Creating a Black Sequence mannequin isn’t nearly dialing up the
juice. Some readers will recall that the
SLS AMG Black Sequence truly had much less torque than
the usual mannequin.
If we had been to hazard a guess, count on aerodynamic enhancements,
weight discount, race-bred suspension, and a suitably angrier
look. The automotive within the newest spy pictures encompasses a roll cage and
a light-weight, plexiglass rear windshield.
When you look carefully, you’ll additionally discover the central exhaust
pipe usually discovered on the GT R has been eliminated. As an alternative,
there are two exhaust pipes, one on both aspect. They’re hidden
behind the diffuser. Such a design is frequent to
AMG’s GT4 racecar.
Underneath the hood would be the acquainted four.Zero-liter twin-turbocharged
V-Eight. It delivers 603 horsepower and 664 pound-feet within the
newest E63 and S63 tremendous sedans, and such an output ought to be
greater than enough to fling in regards to the GT Black Sequence. The GT R
is likely one of the
quickest rear-wheel-drive manufacturing automobiles across the ‘Ring,
and it solely has 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Within the automotive’s crosshairs can 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 Sequence has what it takes to dethrone the flagship 911.
Ferrari’s hardcore 488 may even be a goal.
Keep tuned for updates as improvement continues.
