When the AMG started its way as a different brand than the Mercedes-Benz, it had to offer some completely different cars, and the 2018 GT Coupe GT-R was a good example.
The AMG GT-R didn't share its bodywork with any Mercedes-Benz model. It was an AMG only vehicle and the car that showed a clear line of approach, or departure, from the classy, comfortable, Mercedes-Benz brand. It was a car that was a fierce competitor for cars like the Porsche 911.
The GT-R design was enhanced for a better aerodynamic. The redesigned front apron was fitted with two clear-coated carbon-fiber flics at the sides. The headlights had an unusual design, with a larger LED for the high/low beam and an additional three LED-lights for the turn-signal, daytime running lights, and the directional light for cornering, also known as navigation light. In the rear, the new LED taillights looked better on the dark background.
Inside there was a cockpit for two, with full digital display for the instrument cluster and an additional display for the infotainment unit. The latter was fitted as standard with the AMG TRACK PACE that detects the track and stores the information regarding acceleration, braking point and delivers detailed data for the driver, so the lap-times can be improved. Some famous tracks are already stored on the internal hard-drive, but the other tracks can be recorded by the driver.
The AMG GT-R featured different settings for the engine, transmission, and suspension to optimize the track performance, or just for daily driving, when the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7 can shift smoothly and the 4.0-liter V8 will run lower on the rpm scale, with a deeper sound note.
