2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R

Mercedes-Benz USA today announced pricing for the 2018 AMG GT R Coupe. Arriving in U.S. dealers this summer, the AMG GT R will start at $157,000*. The new Mercedes-AMG GT R features a front-mid-engine with a transaxle, handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine rated at 577 hp, extensively modified suspension, active aerodynamics, active rear-wheel steering, nine-way adjustable traction control and intelligent lightweight construction throughout.

Already living up to its “Beast of the Green Hell” nickname, the AMG GT R is proving to be a record-setter in the Mercedes-AMG family.
