The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R is the fastest street-legal production Mercedes-Benz money can buy. It is the flagship model of the Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT and it was built to dominate the competition around a race track, but not just any race track. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R was designed and constructed specifically for the Nürburgring in Germany.

The GT R is brand new for 2017. It uses the same 4.0L V8 biturbo engine found in the base-model GT, the SL 63, S 63, and G 63, but with a twist. This "hot inside V" engine is specially tuned to produce 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, all to the rear wheels. From zero to 60 miles per hour, the GT R only needs 3.5 seconds. When prompted, it will then continue to accelerate all the way to a top speed of 198 miles per hour.
With a 4.0L biturbo V8 putting out 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, the GT R passes 60 miles per hour at 3.5 seconds and can accelerate all the way to 198.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R uses advanced racing technology such as adaptive aerodynamics, rear-wheel steering, and driver-assistance features that make driving easier and safer.
Even with the excess power of the V8 biturbo and the limited-slip differential, the GT R can be driven in comfort mode to make it comfortable for every-day driving.
Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R Interior Features
On the outside, the GT R looks like a race car, and that is because it is in every sense of the phrase. On the inside, though, it is also a cozy apartment with Nappa leather, DINAMICA microfiber, and AMG® Black Piano Lacquer trim. When you bring it all together with the aggressive center console, multi-function steering wheel, and the optional AMG® Interior Night Package, the GT R is just as ready for a night on the town as any other car on the road.
