Updates to the Mercedes-AMG GT range have been announced including the availability of a new GT R Pro variant.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro won't be a permanent model, it’s a limited edition inspired by the brand’s involvement in GT3 and GT4 motorsport activities.
AMG know-how means the driver can tailor the AMG coil-over suspension by setting the spring preload length mechanically and adjusting the compression and rebound of the dampers, without tools.
GT R Pro variants also pack an adjustable torsion bar made of carbon-fibre, spherical bearings at the lower wishbones of the rear axle and retuned electronically controlled dynamic engine and transmission mounts.
There’s a host of carbon-fibre parts scattered around the body, including a shear panel in the underbody of the rear.
In order to save weight, ceramic composite brakes and lightweight AMG Performance forged wheels are standard.
Updates to the wider AMG GT range include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a next generation AMG steering wheel (first seen in the four-door versions), new LED headlight graphics, fresh wheel designs, and a new rear bumper and diffuser.
AMG Track Pace, a data collecting addition to the Command infotainment system for track use is now standard, as is the AMG Dynamics stability control system which unlocks more drive mode options.
Power continues to come from the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 in various states of tune. The entry-level GT gets outputs of 350kW/630Nm, the GT S delivers 384kW/670Nm, GT C model develop 410kW/680Nm, while the GT R and GT R Pro both produce 430kW/700Nm.
