How Fast is the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R?
Do you constantly feel the need for speed, but also have a taste for the finer things in life? Perfect, because we have a vehicle that will fully fulfill that craving. The new 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R is an absolutely ridiculous combination of power, performance and luxury. Just how fast is the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R? It is fast enough to make you question whether or not you truly want your need for speed fully fulfilled.
2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R Top Speed
How fast is the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R? The vehicle tops out at 198 mph, on the track, of course. How exactly does it manage to achieve these ridiculous speeds? The thanks there goes to each handcrafted AMG 4.0L Biturbo V8 engine that every GT R comes equipped with under the hood. Churning out 577 horsepower and 516 lb.-ft of torque, this V8 engine is ready to handle the most extreme speeds you can possible imagine.
2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R 0-60 Time
Now that 198 mph top speed is certainly impressive, but the estimated 3.5 second 0-60 time that the vehicle has should be equally astonishing. Thanks to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R is able to quickly move through its gears with precise, smooth shifts that make accelerations like this seem almost too easy. One reason these accelerations are so easy is because the vehicle weighs in at a mere 3428 lbs.
Sporty, Luxurious Interior Provides a Ride Unlike Any Other
Normally to achieve speeds like what you get in the Mercedes-AMG GT R, you need to be in a racecar. Fortunately, you will be much more comfortable in the ne GT R than you would be in a racecar, thanks to AMG Performance Seats that utilize Nappa leather and DINAMICA microfiber to provide an extremely relaxing setting. Of course, they still provide enough lateral support to make sure you can aggressively attack any bend you wish.
