DTD Presents… The 2017 Mercedes AMG GT-R
The most hardcore road-going GT in the AMG range, the R is a snarling, bellowing beast.
From where I’m standing the Mercedes-AMG GT R is pure intimidation: fat, wide, low and aggressive. Commendably like the GT3 racer, in fact.
So which came first, racer or road car?
Neither – they have very little in common. The GT R is a development of the GT S road car, not a detuned racing car. Having said that, if you’ve caught a sniff of Nurburgring lap times recently, you might be aware that a GT R has just got itself round there in 7min 10sec, which Merc claims is a record for rear-wheel drive cars. Hmm. A Radical SR8 LM has got itself around in 6min 48secs and although they never published the result, we’ve no reason to doubt McLaren’s P1 dipped below the 7min mark.
But leaving all that aside, a 7min 10secs lap is astonishingly rapid for a comparatively civilised road car. Quicker than a Viper ACR or Corvette ZR1 (surely the closest in layout and ethos to the Merc), only just adrift of a Nismo GT-R. This is good, it proves there’s more to the AMG GT R than doing big, smoky slides.
