Beast of the Green Hell - The Mercedes-AMG GT R Has Arrived.
Comes from the “green hell.” And always wants to be up front.
The exclusive special color “AMG green hell magno” make clear even from a distance the pedigree of the sports car, which has spent much of its development time in the green hell of the Nürburgring. Additional attention is given to the design of the powerfully modeled body and the new AMG Panamericana grille as a unique motor sport feature. The flat front spoiler and forward-inclined radiator grille produce an eye-catching “sharknose” impression, and appear to press the Mercedes-AMG GT R deeper into the street.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R signals its enormous potential with a spectacular design. At first glance, it positions the vehicle as a sports car with pure motor racing DNA. And the details of the design combine form and function to exciting effect. The paint finish too, in AMG green hell magno, is exclusive to the Mercedes-AMG GT R.
Aerodynamic performance for increased negative lift force at the rear axle was a specific development goal for the Mercedes-AMG GT R. At the same time, it was even possible to undercut the very good Cw-value of the AMG GT S, despite the wider vehicle dimensions and a fixed rear aerofoil. This was achieved by means of a host of aerodynamic measures. One of the active measures is the active aerodynamics profile. It consists of ultralight carbon fiber (approximately two kilograms), which extends from the floor paneling beneath the engine from speeds above 80 km/h (in RACE transmission mode, otherwise above 120 km/h) and reduces lift at the front axle. This improves driveability in bends and/or driving stability at high speeds. Another measure is the active air control system: 14 vertical cooling air louvres in the radiator grille open/close automatically in ten stages within a second, and thus reduce wind resistance for high top speeds, reduced fuel consumption and increased stability at the rear axle. With the system opened, the high-performance engine is cooled efficiently. Among the passive measures there is the very large, two-level design rear diffuser as well as the fixed rear aerofoil. Its aerofoil blades can be adjusted manually to any position.
AMG Performance Exhaust System.
The three-pipe AMG Performance exhaust system developed specially for the Mercedes-AMG GT R impresses in terms of both functionality and design. A significant part of the unique low-frequency sound comes courtesy of the rear silencers made of titanium. At the same time, the high-tech material, in conjunction with a guide in thin-walled stainless steel, reflects the systematic lightweight construction: there is a considerable weight saving of around six kilograms. A striking visual indication of the exceptional position of the AMG GT R and its role as the sportiest model in the series: the very large and centrally positioned tailpipe trim element lends the rear apron, with its expressive diffuser, a breathtaking sense of motor racing flair. The two additional exhaust tailpipes, which are not directly visible, are located outside and are enclosed by a carbon fiber heat shield. A consciously reserved sound or a spectacular soundscape is created via steplessly variable exhaust flaps according to the transmission mode of the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT (or separate button). With the setting in Comfort or Sport, the driver enjoys a rather more comfort-oriented sound for long-distance journeys. In Sport+ or RACE, on the other hand, the objective is clear: here, a pure motor racing sound with AMG-specific low-frequency soundscape is the order of the day, and the double-declutching when downshifting creates an even more emotional experience.
Another sporty detail that comes standard are 48.3 cm (19-inch)/50.8 cm (20-inch) AMG 10-spoke forged wheels in titanium gray, and with a high-sheen finish. Optionally, wheels of the same dimensions are available in matte black with high-sheen rim flange, as well as the especially lightweight 48.3 cm/ 50.8 cm (19/20-inch) AMG Performance 5-twin-spoke forged wheels in matte black with high-sheen rim flange.
AMG High-Performance Composite Braking System.
The high-performance composite brake system ensures excellent deceleration and high fade-resistance, with internally ventilated and perforated brake discs of diameter 390 millimeters on the front axle and 360 millimeters on the rear axle. The brake calipers are yellow.
A ceramic, high-performance composite brake system is available as an option. The advantages of this system are a weight saving of 17 kilograms, a longer service life and even better fade resistance thanks to the ceramic brake discs, with a diameter of 402 millimeters at the front and 360 millimeters at the rear.
AMG Track Tires
Equipped with the right tool for real racing drivers.
The Mercedes-AMG GT R systematically continues the conscious sportiness of the exterior in the interior. Every detail emphasizes the vehicle's character as a thrilling driving machine and at the same time, impresses with an outstanding sense of high-class appeal.

In order to provide the driver of the new AMG GT R with the ideal conditions in which to drive, the vehicle interior is also strongly inspired by motorsport. The vehicle comes standard-equipped with extremely light, manually adjustable AMG sports bucket seats upholstered in nappa leather and DINAMICA microfiber come. They offer the necessary lateral support, even in extreme driving maneuvers. Alternatively, tried-and-tested AMG Performance seats can be ordered as an option at no extra cost. The optional yellow seat belts, dials with yellow highlights, the AMG Interior Piano Lacquer package and special controls, including those for the new AMG TRACTION CONTROL, underscore the unique standing of the new AMG GT R.
AMG Sports Bucket Seats.
The AMG sports seat seats bring technology from the motorsport to the street. Thanks to intelligent lightweight construction, they are once again significantly lighter than the AMG Performance seats. The specially designed side bolsters provide the best possible lateral support, even at the highest lateral acceleration. The seats are only adjustable in the longitudinal direction. For the mechanical height adjustment (3-step) tool is needed.
As an optional extra, AMG Performance seats that already proven to be successful in the AMG GT and AMG GT S, are also available.
AMG Interior Piano Lacquer And Interior Night Package.
Trim elements in a sophisticated high-gloss piano lacquer finish underscore the high-quality of the interior. As standard for the Mercedes-AMG GT R, the AMG Interior Piano Lacquer package consists of center console border edging, ventilation outlet rings and door armrest trim strips in a piano lacquer-effect finish. Additionally, exclusively with the AMG Interior Night package, the following elements that would otherwise be finished in silver chrome are finished in black:
Door sill panels with Mercedes-AMG lettering, lower steering wheel bezel (painted), steering wheel gearshift paddles, bezel on the instrument cluster tubes (AMG GT R only), luggage compartment strut, seat insert beneath the head restraints (painted) in conjunction with AMG Performance seats.
The AMG instrument cluster provides an exciting AMG design and valuable information for sporty drivers. Exclusivity and sportiness are visually underscored by the two-tube look of the round dials with carbon fiber-effect backplates and a surround in high-gloss black. The speedometer with 360 km/h dial is on the left, the rev counter with AMG logo on the right. The AMG main menu, including RACETIMER and the AMG start-up screen, are shown in high resolution and in color on the central 11.4 cm TFT multifunction display. With the RACETIMER, it is possible to measure and store lap times.
AMG Drive Unit.
Featuring controls in stylized V8 arrangement, the AMG DRIVE UNIT is the control center for the sports transmission as well as all driving dynamics functions. The AMG E-SELECT selector lever, the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller and various buttons can be used to adjust the mode, transmission and ESP®, for example. The driver can change between the R, N and D transmission settings in the most direct manner possible by just nudging the AMG E-SELECT lever. The AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller can be used to call up the predefined modes, "Comfort" (C), "Sport" (S), "Sport Plus" (S+) and "RACE", plus an individually configurable mode (I*). In so doing, each individual mode changes the vehicle parameters depending on the vehicle equipment, the aim being to offer the driver an optimum driving experience in every driving situation. Selecting a mode changes the settings for the drive system, the transmission tuning, the steering, the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system, the ESP® and the ECO Start/Stop function. The “M” activates manual mode, which allows the driver to change gear manually at all times. In addition, the AMG DRIVE UNIT has a button for selecting the ESP® levels, a button for manually adjusting the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension and a button for the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system.
Doesn't know fear, but inspires fear: The sportiest derivative of the AMG GT family impressively demonstrates how closely series and racing technology are linked at Mercedes-AMG. For the customer, the high-caliber transfer of expertise from motorsports is palpable in every driving situation.

AMG TRACTION CONTROL.
Exciting transfer of know-how directly from the AMG GT3 and fitted for the first time in a series-production sports car: AMG TRACTION CONTROL makes handling the enormous drive system performance easier and turns the vehicle into the ultimate driving machine. The sensitive system, which can be easily adjusted at any time in nine levels, calculates the maximum target slip of the rear wheels and dispenses the engine power accordingly. An integral part of the system is also the electronic rear-axle differential lock, which enables the highest possible speed to be reached when accelerating out of curves. Unlike the SPORT handling mode of the three-stage ESP® with raised thresholds, the AMG TRACTION CONTROL is designed exclusively to enhance performance. As a result, the top-level motorsport system is activated automatically in “ESP OFF” mode.
AMG RIDE CONTROL Sports Suspension.
AMG RIDE CONTROL Sports Suspension with coil-over elements enables a personal, favorite setup and/or the ideal configuration for the respective track. In addition, the spring rate on the Mercedes-AMG GT R can be set manually prior to driving via the coil-over element. The combined adaptive adjustable damping is controlled electronically. As such, the damping of each wheel adjusts automatically to the current driving conditions, speed and road surface conditions. Furthermore, the driver can preselect the characteristics with the press of a button in the AMG DRIVE UNIT or via the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes. Three settings are available: "Comfort," "Sport" and "Sport +."
AMG 4.0-Liter V8-Biturbo Engine.
The AMG V8 biturbo high-performance engine, which is mounted very low down thanks to dry sump lubrication, benefits from an increase in output to 430 kW (585 hp); 15 percent more than is found in the Mercedes-AMG GT S. At the same time, a maximum torque of 700 Nm is available in an engine speed range from 1900 to 5500 rpm. This exceptional athlete accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. The top speed is 318 km/h. The ideal performance partner is the more sportily tuned AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, fitted to the rear axle in a proven transaxle configuration for ideal weight distribution: It features shortened ratios in 1st and 7th gear and as a result, exhibits even more dynamic bursts of acceleration. In addition, the so-called final-drive ratio has been adapted with a view to enhancing performance.
RACE START offers increased start-up speeds and sensitive wheel slip control, ensuring an even more emotional experience in conjunction with the standard-fit sports tires. The double-declutching function when downshifting also stabilizes the vehicle (e.g., when braking before bends) by minimizing undesired load change reactions.
Rear-Axle Limited-Slip Differential.
The electronically controlled AMG rear-axle limited-slip differential improves traction as well as driving stability in slaloms or when changing lane at high speeds. By reducing the slip on the inside driven wheel without control intervention of the brake, and by directing torque to the wheel with better grip, it is possible to achieve better acceleration out of corners as well as even more precise vehicle handling.
AMG Rear-Axle Steering.
The AMG rear-axle steering provides support in any situation and in any speed range. The rear wheels steer in the opposite direction up to a speed of 100 km/h, which the driver experiences as a virtual shortening of the wheelbase, providing first-class agility when spontaneously changing direction. When parking the driver likewise benefits from a small turning circle with noticeably reduced steering effort. Above 100 km/h, the rear wheels steer in the same direction as the front wheels. This makes the vehicle even easier to control since in this case, the sensation is that of an extended wheelbase. This increases driving stability even further at the limits of dynamic driving. The faster buildup of lateral force compared with a non-steered rear axle specifically translates into improved lap times on the race track for driving professionals.
AMG Speedshift DCT 7-Speed Sports Transmission.
Extremely fast shifting without any interruption in tractive power: The AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission is a dual clutch transmission. It comprises two sub-transmissions, one of which transfers the tractive power to the wheels, while the other already preselects the next gear. This forms the basis for spontaneous gear changes and extremely short shift times. When kickdown mode is used, the electronic controller skips individual gear ranges instead of changing down through each individual gear. This enables fast sprints.
When downshifting, the double-declutching function is much more than a highly emotional sound experience. It stabilizes the vehicle and minimizes unwanted load change reactions, for example when braking prior to bends. Another basic advantage is the fact that the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission is positioned on the rear axle for ideal weight distribution. This transaxle design optimizes traction. Power transmission occurs via a carbon fiber drive shaft, which rotates at engine speed and is extremely strong while weighing only 3.9 kilograms. The engine and transmission are thus connected in a way that makes them resistant to bending and at the same time, torsionally rigid and as such, they support each other. This sophisticated solution means the entire drivetrain is virtually free of play.
