In addition to the tender loving care that went into the M178 engine, the Edo GT R is almost an inch lower to the ground up front and 0.78 inches (2 centimeters) at the rear. Look even closer to the black beauty in the gallery, and you’ll notice that the exhaust isn’t standard either, benefitting from a variable exhaust controller.
What’s the nitty-gritty of all of these minor changes taken together as a whole? First off, top speed is higher than the standard vehicle’s 340 km/h (212 miles per hour). Then there’s zero to 60 and the corner carving, both marginally better when compared to stock.
"Achieving maximum performance through enormous expertise, the edo GT R has everything a super sports car needs," the company says about the GT R that sort of poses as a faux AMG Black Series. "The vehicle’s hulking good looks are a perfect fit for its infernal sound, hellish speed and impressive handling – all adding up to maximum performance in a street-worthy race car."
Edo Competition doesn’t say a word about pricing for the 660-PS tuning package, though it’s not hard to imagine what’s what considering that the GT R kicks off at 166,481 euros in Mercedes-AMG’s German configurator. Under €200k should fit the bill.
