Track-Focused Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO Confirmed For LA Auto Show

Mercedes has announced the lineup of its LA Auto Show display, which will include the reveal of the new limited-edition AMG GT R PRO, an even more track-focused version of the AMG GT’s faster derivative to date.

The new Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO features a range of modifications, based on the company’s findings from their AMG GT3 and AMG GT4 race cars. It wasn’t that long ago when Tobias Moers hinted at a AMG GT R ‘Club Sport’, and there it is.

Mercedes will also reveal an update for the whole AMG GT range that will include modifications both inside and out in order to “emphasize the close relationship to the 4-door AMG GT Coupé”.

Other cars confirmed for the upcoming show include the all-new GLE SUV, which will make its official public premiere in USA, featuring an innovative 48V active suspension and a fully variable all-wheel drive system.

AMG will also have on display their hybrid 53 series models, including the CLS, E-Class Coupe and E-Class Convertible while the new Mercedes A-Class Sedan will also celebrate its official public debut in the USA.

Visitors to the Mercedes stand will also get to see the new Sprinter van, which is now produced at a new plant in South Carolina. The third-generation Sprinter will offer plenty of tech, including the latest MBUX multimedia system and modern driver assistance systems.

Mercedes will reveal its new models at the LA Auto Show on November 28, so stay tuned.
