With these two new additions, Mercedes-Benz expanded the portfolio of AMG in India to 12 models. The AMG GT-R is based on the AMG GT3 race car while the GT roadster inspired by the GT-R to give dynamic performance at the highest level to which the AMG brand is known.
The AMG GT-R has been designed taking into account the hierarchical use. The front lower hollow front and the sloped grill radiator creates a clear “shark nose” feel and make the car seem to sit down on the road.
The fascia features a completely new wing-jet design that emphasizes the wide feel and gives the car a more striking look. The rear also has many innovations such as new aluminum sides widen the rear of the AMG GT-R, thus creating space for larger 20-inch wheels and wider gauge. The broad rear design improves the airflow at the rear, as does the double diffuser.
The interior of the AMG GT-R is also strongly inspired by motorsport. AMG performance seats come in Nappa leather and the Dynamica microfiber comes standard. They provide the necessary lateral support, even in extreme driving maneuvers.
Optional yellow seat straps, yellow reflective dials, black piano interior trim and special lacquered orders including the new AMG traction control underscore the unique position of the new AMG GT-R. Four central projector openings and individual openings at the right and left ends of the dashboard reinforce this impression.
Under the hood is a traditional bi-turbo AMG 4.0-liter V8 engine that has a mammoth output of 569 hp and 699 Nm of incredible torque. The engine is coupled to the 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
The car has several driving modes – Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. With the ability to go from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds, the GT-R has a top speed of 318 km / h, has a coefficient of friction lower than that of the AMG GT.
Named “Green Hell Beast,” the AMG GT-R recently broke the road world record for the production of legal cars at Buddh International Circuit (BIC) by recording the fastest lap of 2: 09.853. GT-R also recorded the Nurburgring registration for a rear-wheel drive car, with a time of 7: 09.10.
Developed entirely by the sports car and performance brand, the open roof speaker marks a successful expansion of the GT family.

The GT Roadster gets the combination of the new 19-inch 20-inch AMG alloy wheels in a twin 5-spoke design. Several aluminum alloys are used for chassis and body, and magnesium for the front end, which reduces inertia to the front axle; Improves agility.
