The vehicle features advanced technologies and intelligent engineering solutions. It is completely assembled by hand and delivers massive 577hp via the heavily revised AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo unit. This engine is further paired to an exclusive seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. And as any other self-respected tuner, AMG has geared the beast with active rear-wheel steering, adjustable coilover suspension and electronic limited-slip differential. Sweet.


The most interesting thing is that the GT R is not only a track-ready car. It can also be used for everyday casual driving. There is this thing called selectable shock damping, which allows the GT R to deliver smooth and comfortable driving. There are also handy features that make the experience even more pleasurable: the keyless-go system, command navigation and other interior utility features really make the difference.
