Mercedes-Benz is known to kick things up a notch, and the automaker has truly gone above and beyond with the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R, also known as the “Beast from the Green Hell.”

Between uncompromising performance from a handcrafted AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo engine and ultimate precision thanks to AMG® TRACTION CONTROL, you’re in for a ride like no other in Sparta. Learn more about the Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R and the car-buying process with Mercedes-Benz of Newton


Specifications for Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R models in the U.S. have yet to be released, but they’re likely to be quite similar to those coming from Europe. A few highlights to look forward to include:

  • Output of 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque
  • Top speed of 198 mph
  • Sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds
  • All-new AMG® TRACTION CONTROL with 9 distinct modes
  • Central exhaust outlet with standard AMG® Performance Exhaust

The motorsport technology doesn’t end there, though. Active rear-axle steering allows for responsiveness on tight corners and stability even at high speeds. An engine management system adjusts settings based on your individual driving style, specifically based on your throttle inputs and g-force indicators. And this equipment only scratches the surface of all the Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R has to offer.


In addition to these performance perks, the structure and style of the Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT R is particularly noteworthy. An aerodynamic stature greets you, along with front and rear fenders that stretch wide.

Plus, there’s an exclusive new color in store: AMG® Green Hell Magno. There’s no question you’ll be turning heads if you drive this supercar through Newton, especially since it is led by the new face of AMG®, the Panamericana Grille.
