Nowadays, delivering stellar performance, whether on a drag strip or on the Nurburgring doesn't seem to be enough. No matter how good a go-fast machine is, the vehicle must also pack a charisma bonus and we're here to zoom in on how the Mercedes-AMG GT R covers this aspect.
We'll start with the most recent aspect of the 577 hp track-friendly supercar's attention-grabbing aura. Despite the fact that deliveries haven't kicked off yet, an example of the speed animal has recently been spotted on the streets of Berlin - lens tip to Autogespot for these images.

Sporting its AMG Green Hell Magno launch color, the thing stands out in traffic like Miss Bodybuilder 2016 wearing a dress made of LEDs.

The timing has been carefully calculated, as the car goes on sale next week (November 21), with the first European owners are set to receive their cars on March next year. This isn't the first GT R roaming the streets after the vehicle's launch, though.

And the influence of the GT R spreads far beyond public roads. Keep in mind that this is a supercar wearing the Beast of the Green Hell nickname. And while some of the most YouTube-friendly corners on the infamous German track, such as the Carousel, show GT R or AMG billboards, Afflaterbach has yet to reveal the Ring time of the contraption.

Multiple prototypes have been spotted flying from one Nordschleife corner to another after the animal's launch, which took place back in June. And while the automaker has discussed its GT R Nurburgring effort, we only know the machine aims to beat the Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK, a 7:20 car.

Until we get to find out more about the stopwatch performance of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R, we'll try to keep ourselves busy with immersive images like the ones we have here.
