For those who think the Mercedes-AMG GT isn’t exciting enough, soon you will be able buy this- the Mercedes-AMG GT R. It is currently being tested somewhere up in the arctic and that’s when the car paparazzi spotted the beast in the wild.
So, here are some more images of the upcoming hardcore Mercedes-AMG GT R this time with a bit less camouflage. Some of the key features to be noted are the large air intakes up front, a substantial diffuser with center-mounted exhausts. The active rear wing has also been replaced with a extra-large fixed spoiler.

Mercedes-AMG is currently working on a track-ready version of their flagship AMG GT. It will be called the Mercedes-AMG GT R and will come with a few technical modifications to suit the racetrack. On the outside, the AMG GT R will also feature revised styling and aerodynamic changes for added downforce.
Mercedes-AMG head honcho Tobias Moers has also indicated that the upcoming AMG GT R will not be the top-of-the-line model in the GT range. An upcoming AMG GT Black Series is expected to raise the performance bar even higher.
That said, the Mercedes-AMG GT R will hit the showrooms in the latter part of next year with a revised twin-turbo V8 engine from the AMG GT S. The AMG GT R being a track-focussed model, we can expect a reduction in overall weight and flamboyant styling- the latter is evident from the spy shot featured here.
The current Mercedes-AMG GT S uses a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 which kicks out 503 hp. This figure would change when the same engines goes under the hood of the AMG GT R. Active aerodynamics and rear-wheel steering are some of the other features that should make the AMG GT R a rather interesting package.
