  • Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro

    There's a new top dog in AMG's GT sports car family, the GT R Pro, which the Affalterbach tuner unveiled last week at the 2018 LA Auto Show alongside an updated GT range. AMG announced at the debut that the GT R Pro is capable of a Nürburgring lap time of 7.04.632, and now we have the video of the hot lap with GT3 racing driver Maro Engel behind the wheel. While the time is well off the record for production cars, the 6:44.97 set by a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ earlier in the year, what's perhaps most impressive is just how stable the 577-horsepower GT R Pro is when driven at the limit...

    Mercedes-AMG's GT sports car is about to receive a subtle facelift, as evidenced by the recent sighting of a prototype sporting a few tweaks. The changes constitute a mid-cycle update for AMG's standalone sports car which first arrived as a 2016 model. We expect this updated version to go on sale in 2019 as a 2020 model, where it will go head to head with a redesigned Porsche 911. Not wanting to mess with the sexy lines of the GT, it looks like AMG's design team only plans to tweak the lights and rear fascia. That's a good thing. You can see new internals in the headlights, and the daytime...

  • 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R Formula 1 safety car

    Mercedes-AMG's 577-horsepower GT R is taking over from the GT S as Formula 1's official safety car. AMG has been supplying safety cars for F1 since 1996. The GT R will be the fastest yet, however, with its top speed clocked at 197 mph. The car is also the most powerful safety car in F1 history. The safety car's job is to lead the field on warm-up laps and also come out if there's an accident or bad weather. The main modification is the light bar on the roof, which AMG's designers have attached to a wind tunnel-tested carbon fiber scoop for optimal aerodynamics. But because F1 cars often need...
