The much-anticipated sportscar is the AMG GT R powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 mill producing 585bhp and 700Nm of torque. The car rides on 20-inch aluminium wheels and gets a titanium silencer that makes it lighter than the GT S already on sale in India. This GT R does the 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.6seconds, and recently became the fastest car to lap the Buddha International Circuit in India.
The GT R also differentiates itself from the GT S already on sale in India. The former is lighter thanks to the 20-inch aluminium wheels and titanium silencer. The GT R reaches 100kmph from standstill in just 3.6 seconds. Furthermore, it is the first AMG model to feature rear wheel steering too.
The Mercedes-AMG GT4 uses the same 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine as the road-going versions, but here it is tuned to just 510 hp (the same as in the S and 75 hp less than in the R version). It also has less torque – up to 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) – than the standard GT, but it more than makes up for it with its lower weight and improved aerodynamics.
