The green monster is finally here. The Mercedes-AMG GT R is the bonkers version of the already really good AMG GT. Yes, it has 577 horsepower and does 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, but this car isn’t about straight line speed. The funny thing is, it’s not a pure track car either. Yes, it has four-wheel steering, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, carbon ceramic brakes, active aerodynamics and a bunch of other crazy things that did get it around the Nürburgring in 7 minutes and 10 seconds, but it is also very heavy. Heck, car magazines have been even comparing it directly to the Porsche 911 GT3RS. So what is it then? I like to think of it as more of a ”do it all” car. Want to daily drive it? Sure. Want to lay down lap times with it? It’ll handle anything you can throw at it. Want to go crazy and drift it? It’ll gladly do that also. It’s just a car like this really doesn’t have a defined role. You can have your cake and eat it too. That’s the purpose of this GT R. Fear not, because if you are looking for a track car, the AMG GT3 is on the way.
