The AMG® GT is one of the most iconic vehicles in Mercedes-Benz history. When you put an R behind it, it also becomes one of the fastest vehicles on the road today. For 2017, the GT R is brand new. It has never before been offered under the GT nameplate and offers more performance than most race cars. If you are looking for a 2017 AMG® GT R in Phoenix AZ, come talk to us today!
The GT R was designed for a special purpose. As its Green Hell Magno color indicates, the true destiny of the GT R is to get around the North Loop of the Nürburgring, known locally as the Green Hell. In order to accomplish this, the GT R was visualized, designed, built, tested, and analyzed on at the Nürburgring. This devotion to speed is what brought us 577 horsepower and a top speed of 198 miles per hour.
The 2017 AMG® GT R features the legendary 4.0L V8 biturbo with dry-sump lubrication, paired with the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® DCT 7-speed transmission.
With 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, the 2017 GT R is the most powerful AMG® GT ever produced.
Even though it weighs 3,428 pounds, the GT R still can get from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 198 miles per hour.
One of the major components that sets the GT R apart from the GT and the GT S is the adaptive aerodynamics. The front bumper, the underbody, and the rear bumper all move mechanically to manipulate airflow at different speeds. When the car needs more air, the louvers open up, if the car needs more downforce, the vents will close, creating a streamline of air that helps keep the car on the track.
The GT R is also wider than the GT and the GT S. With an extra 1.8 inches in the front and 2.2 inches in the back, the GT R features wider tires and track-friendly wheelbase.
