Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro
Aerodynamics have been fine tuned for the AMG GT R Pro to improve performance. The front apron has been redesigned and is fitted with two flics at the sides made of clear-coated carbon fiber. The front splitter is extended forward with small metal braces to stabilize at higher speeds. At the rear, the spoiler is fitted with a lip that increases downforce at the rear axle. The spoiler now sits on milled aluminum brackets, similar to those found on racing cars. Powering the AMG GT R Pro is a more powerful version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 577 horsepower. With AMG GT3 racing driver Maro Engel behind the wheel, the GT R Pro completed a lap of Germany’s famed Nurburgring racetrack in 7.04.632 — considerably quicker than the previous version of the AMG GT R.
