At the top of its game from the onset, AMG GT R now holds the distinction of holding the ‘Fastest Lap’ record at BIC. AMG Driver, Christian Hohenadel was behind the wheel, and the lap test supervised by FMSCI.
We also know that the new Mercedes-AMG E63 S is a brilliant car, too, though. It’s about as fast, looks good, has a great cabin and is great to drive. So choosing between them could be difficult. Though, there is one thing that tips the scales in the AMG’s favor thought and that’s the fact that it also comes in wagon form.
The company says foundations for such exceptional driving dynamics come courtesy of the front mid-engine layout with transaxle, a 430 kW(585 hp) V8 biturbo engine, extensively modified suspension, sophisticated aerodynamics, active rear-axle steering, bespoke tyres and intelligent lightweight design.
The car has active flaps behind the front fascia and underneath. The flaps were developed on a computer simulation, post which they were tested in a wind tunnel and finally honed on the Nürburgring. It is this iconic race track which the green hell magno matt paint pays homage to.
