They call it ‘The Beast of the Green Hell’, not because of its stunning paint job but because the Mercedes-AMG GT R spent most of its development time on the Nürburgring racetrack, which is nicknamed ‘The Green Hell’. Built specifically to burn rubber on the racetrack, the GT R is the new spearhead of the AMG model range, going from 0 to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 318km/h. Packing in an AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo engine, everything from the steering to the suspension has been tweaked to give you the best times on the racetrack.
