Ever since Mr. A and Mr. G began modding Mercedes-Benz cars, they have never stopped improving AMG’s lineup. Continual improvements caught the eye of their former bosses, and AMG was purchased by Mercedes-Benz in 1999. Now that the AMG GT has been on the market for a few years, it is time to make it a proper race car. If you have been wondering how good it really is, here is the Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro track review by Carfection.
Henry Catchpole and team did a great job showing the differences between the AMG GT R and the new GT R Pro. First off, the shocks are manually adjustable, with separate compression and rebound dials. Then it was on to carbon fiber upgrades. Starting with a driveshaft tunnel brace, this gorgeous kit increases torsional rigidity by 7%. Carbon fiber can also be seen on the new front and rear spoilers, dive planes, and the fixed-back racing buckets.
The track pack is now standard, so you will have a roll cage and fire extinguisher that are compliant for many classes. Engine and transmission settings were not changed, so you still have 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque at your command.
