The 2018 Mercedes AMG GT R finally made its U.S. debut at the Monterey Car Week and it easily made the crowd go awe with excitement, especially because of the unique color tone.
The designers have gone for what they call the AMG Green Hell Magno which is strikingly beautiful and makes the car look like a green beast on the road. And, if you have been wondering whether we misspelled the word Magno, you are totally wrong. AMG has come up with this new word instead of a green mango to represent the color variant used in the new GT R.
A bunch of high resolution pictures have emerged online giving a brief glimpse of this car that is about to be the benchmark vehicle for years to come. Compared to the base model, the 2018 Mercedes AMG GT R has some significant changes and performance improvements. The model is powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine. The powertrain delivers a massive 577 horsepower coupled with 516 pound feet of torque.
When a model from Mercedes is out with a R badge, it is supposed to justify the name. All cars in the series are known for their top notch speed, performance and some of the best features. The new AMG GT R is no different. It has a cool top speed of 198 mph and can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a mere 3.5 seconds.
Mercedes has also integrated some experimental features into the car developed by their own research and development division. Some of them were revealed while many have been kept under wraps and will be discussed close to launch date. The 2018 Mercedes AMG GT R was first launched in the month of May this year and has started appearing in other auto shows throughout the year.
A lot of carbon fiber has been used to build the car which uses 19-inch wheels in the front and 20-inch wheels in the rear. The brake discs are really massive ensuring the passengers’ safety when cruising at top speed. An aggressive vehicle is in the making without any doubt and the new green hell color tone just adds up to its already sporty looks.
Mercedes will take more time to make minor changes to the car before they bring it to their dealership stores. We are yet to know its official pricing and launch date.
