A high performance version of the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT has been spotted testing in in Europe. Our sources suggest that this car is a road going version of their GT3 race car. It is likely to be called either the AMG GT-R or may even become a new Black series car.
The car, while camouflaged, does show its sporty origins. The front bumper gets new air intakes while the grille is expected to get some upgrades possibly for additional cooling.
The side profile remains the same as earlier while the rear gets new air intakes, central mounted exhaust and a wing for additional downforce. There is also a new rear diffuser which is very evident in the photos.
We believe that this car will continue with the standard model’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which will now be fettled to produce more power than the standard car’s 503bhp and 650Nm. The seven-speed gearbox is likely to be modified to manage the upgraded output better.
