Available now is this 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT-R finished in Green Hell Magno over a black leather and Dinamica interior. Built as the ultimate high-performance model of the Mercedes-AMG GT, the GT-R was introduced in 2016 featuring a hand-built 577 HP V8 engine, four-wheel steering, active aerodynamics, and extensive use of lightweight materials. This AMG GT-R was originally delivered to Rallye Motors of New York featuring a long list of desirable options including GT-R specific paint, AMG carbon-ceramic brakes, AMG carbon-fiber door sill covers, a carbon-fiber engine cover, a carbon-fiber interior crossbar, matte carbon-fiber interior trim, Distronic adaptive cruise control, a Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound system, and more. Remaining part of the original owner's private collection, this AMG GT-R is now being offered for auction out of New York showing just over 30 miles on the odometer.
This AMG GT-R was optioned in the exclusive matte color of Green Hell Magno (376U), a $9,900 optional shade that derives its namesake from the infamous Nürburgring race track. The styling of the GT-R is heavily influenced by the AMG GT3 race car and features a manually adjustable rear wing, front air intakes, carbon-fiber front fenders, an optional carbon-fiber roof panel, electronically-controlled front splitter, and active front grille shutters. Other details include LED headlights with Adaptive Highbeam Assist, LED taillights, front fender vents, a central exhaust outlet, and massive gold-finished brake calipers with cross-drilled rotors from the AMG carbon-ceramic braking system. Factory 19”/20” AMG forged wheels come finished in black with original Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The cabin is trimmed in black Nappa leather and Dinamica microsuede upholstery and features power-adjustable and heated AMG Performance seats with Dinamica inserts, memory settings, and optional yellow seatbelts. Dinamica upholstery extends to the center console, dashboard, door panels, headliner, and the AMG flat-bottomed steering wheel. Optional matte carbon-fiber trim lines the door panels, center console, central dashboard vents, and crossbar behind the front seats. The AMG Night Interior Package equips gloss-black trim to the center console, steering wheel, and instrument panel binnacle. Optional driver’s amenities include the Keyless Go entry system, adaptive Distronic cruise control, power-adjustable interior and exterior mirrors with auto-dimming, automatic lane recognition, lane-keeping assist, and the Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound System. Standard features include front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view parking camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8.4” Mercedes COMAND infotainment system.
The AMG GT-R is powered by a hand-built twin-turbocharged 4.0L M178 V8 with dry-sump lubrication, a hot-inside V configuration, and redesigned wastegates, combustion chambers, and exhaust ports. Developing up to 577 HP and 516 lb.-ft of torque at 19.5 PSI, the GT-R can reach 60 MPH from a standstill in 3.5 seconds with a claimed top speed of 198 MPH. The rear wheels are driven through a 7-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch transmission, a lightweight carbon-composite driveshaft, and an electronically-controlled limited-slip differential. The GT-R is factory equipped with rear-wheel steering that reduces the vehicle's turning radius. The suspension utilizes manually adjustable coilover springs in conjunction with the AMG Ride Control system, which can be switched between three modes of adaptive sport suspension. The optional AMG carbon-ceramic braking system provides superior stopping power while also saving 33 lbs. over standard steel rotors. The yellow AMG Drive Select knob mounted in the dashboard allows the driver to choose one of nine AMG traction control modes, a system first used in the AMG GT3 track car.
This sale will include the original owner's manuals and a clean title. One of the most track-focused vehicles from Mercedes-AMG yet, the GT-R is an unadulterated sports car built for the most demanding drivers. Do not miss the chance to add this like-new 2018 example to your collection.
