Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO.

Mercedes-Benz Auckland is excited to announce that our AMG Performance Centre will soon receive a very exclusive Mercedes-AMG vehicle.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO is the wildest iteration yet of the most track-focused car in the Mercedes-AMG range, whilst still being able to be driven every day on the road. We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of one of only two that will be coming to New Zealand from a limited global production run of only 750.

The AMG GT R PRO packs a biturbo 4.0 litre V8 engine sending 430 kW if power (at 6250 rpm) and 700 Nm of torque (between 2100 and 5500 rpm) to the rear wheels via an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G seven-speed transaxle. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is clocked at just 3.6 seconds.

In the sternest challenge of road car prowess – a lap of the fearsome Nurburgring Norschleife – the GT R PRO lapped the 20.6 km circuit in just 7 minutes 4.632 seconds, more than 6 seconds quicker than the AMG GT R on which it is based.

The vehicle we have arriving has eye-catching looks with matt designo Selenite Grey magno paint with a light green bonnet and side stripes and is priced at $420,000 MRRP.

Be amongst the first in New Zealand to see the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO by making an exclusive appointment to view with either Ken or Slava from our AMG team.

Race-inspired package

A new AMG coil-over suspension system offers more adjustability to tailor the GT R PRO’s set-up to a particular circuit. As in professional motorsport, the driver is not only able to set the spring pre-load length mechanically, but can now also adjust the compression and rebound of the dampers. This is done quickly and precisely without tools, via a click system with an integral adjustment dial on the damper.

The front axle is fitted with an adjustable torsion bar made of lightweight carbon-fibre. Its steel counterpart at the rear is likewise adjustable, and also saves weight due to its hollow tube design.

Lightweight componentry

The extensive use of lightweight carbon-fibre components is supplemented by lightweight, fade-resistant ceramic high-performance compound brakes, plus AMG bucket seats made of clear-coated carbon fibre, and lightweight 20-inch AMG Performance 5-double-spoke forged wheels in exclusive painted titanium grey with a high-sheen rim flange.

A standard-fit Carbon Package includes the front splitter, fins in the wings, trim strips in the side sills and a diffuser with high-quality clear-coated carbon-fibre finish, plus a carbon-fibre roof with lowered centre redesigned for helmet clearance.

In addition, the GT R PRO features side mirrors, the rear wing, door trims, door sills and centre console trim all made of carbon-fibre.

Aerodynamic improvements

The overall performance of the AMG GT R PRO is also enhanced by aerodynamic fine-tuning. The redesigned front apron is fitted with two flics at the sides made of clear-coated carbon fibre. The lower flics transition virtually seamlessly into the front splitter, which was extended further forward and is held by small metal braces to stabilise the front splitter at higher speeds. The louvres in the front wings effectively vent the wheel arches, and consequently contribute to reducing front-axle lift.

At the rear, a clear-coated carbon-fibre aero element at the wheel arch on either side rises up vertically almost to the level of the tail lights.

Racy looks

In addition to the significant addition of carbon-fibre exterior trim elements, the special status of the GT R PRO is underscored by racing stripes running over the bonnet and roof, as well as along the sides of the vehicle.

The eye-catching combination is matt designo Selenite Grey magno paint finished with light green wrap; the only colour available on the vehicle in New Zealand.
