How fast is the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R?

If you desire the pinnacle of Mercedes-Benz performance, then you’ll want to opt for the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R. With the all-new GT R, the AMG designers and engineers in Affalterbach created the fastest and most powerful AMG GT yet.  

The high-performance 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R can reach a top speed of 198 mph and accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. This impressive speed is the result of the massive power that’s generated from the GT R’s handcrafted biturbo 4.0L V8 engine. It delivers 577 horsepower, which is 74 hp more than the previous top-of-the-range engine in the GT S. Also, it offers immense driving enjoyment with its spontaneous response, precisely measured power output and linear power delivery with powerful thrust in all engine speed ranges, all of which makes the car far easier to control when driving at the limit.

Speed-Enhancing Aerodynamics of Mercedes-AMG GT-R

The performance of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R is further enhanced by its advanced aerodynamics. A new front fascia with active elements, a large rear aerofoil and a new rear fascia with double diffuser enhance aerodynamic efficiency and help ensure optimum grip. Also, the lightweight forged wheels equipped with cup tires as standard are likewise designed for maximum driving dynamics. The GT R is also aided by its active air management system, with electronically controlled louvres that can be opened and closed in approximately one second by an electric motor. This improves the airflow and consequently the aerodynamic performance.
