Track Focused Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro Gets £188,345 UK Price Tag

Mercedes-AMG’s GT R Pro flagship model is now available to order in the UK, priced at £188,345 ($250,254), or roughly £40,000 ($53,000) more than the “regular” GT R Coupe.

The Pro features the same twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 as the GT R that puts out 577 HP (585 PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. It accelerates from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and max out at 198 mph (318 km/h).

It’s not straight line performance that makes this car special, though. The GT R Pro produces more downforce than the GT R and features a new suspension and lightweight bucket seats and wheels. The end result is improved rigidity and greater stability around corners.

Standard equipment on the GT R Pro includes a 10.25-inch digital-instrument cluster display and multimedia display, carbon ceramic brakes, matte black roll cage, 19-inch front / 20-inch rear AMG five twin-spoke titanium grey alloy wheels and a Premium package (Burmester surround sound, Keyless-Go package).

That’s not all, though; you also get the AMG Track package, Active Aerodynamics, AMG Ride Control sports suspension with adjustable damper system, AMG electronically controlled rear axle limited-slip differential, Parking package (including Parking Assist Parktronic), AMG Traction Control and AMG Interior Night package.

Meanwhile, the AMG Matte Black Carbon Fiber Trim package, light green racing stripes and the AMG Carbon package I for the rear diffuser and front splitter, help give the car its track-focused appearance.

Make no mistake: this is not just a fully loaded GT R. AMG GT3 racing driver Maro Engel lapped the Nurburgring in just 7:04.632 minutes with the AMG GT R Pro – that’s over 6 seconds quicker than the AMG GT R and 4 seconds quicker than the Nissan GT-R Nismo. So while the £40k premium is not exactly cheap and you don’t get a power upgradfe, you can see where the extra money has gone, and then it’s up to you to decide if you want something even more extreme than the already raw GT R.

    “6 seconds quicker” or Maro Engel being a professional racer is just faster than Christian Gebhardt, who drove the GT R lap time. An amateur racer, who is fast, but still no match compared to a factory racing driver.
