2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series To Have 700+ HP?

The Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series is currently in testing phase, with reports citing a 2020 launch. However, it seems that the German firm has already started taking pre-orders for the car that marks the return of the iconic moniker.

In an Instagram post, an alleged GT R Black Series customer claims to have been told about the car’s output that’s supposed to be in excess of 700 HP. He also claims that production will commence in the third quarter of next year – and he attached the purchase form that’s dated April 23, 2019.

Although this looks legit, we obviously have no way of verifying its authenticity. If, however, it turns out to be real, then the GT R Black Series will gun for some of the most established supercars out there such as the Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S, both of which have 710 hp – not to mention the 631 hp Lamborghini Huracan Evo.

In theory, modifying the GT R’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to develop 700+ hp seems very much doable. Right now, the most powerful iteration of this engine is found in the 630 hp (640 PS / 470 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) unit of the GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe, which needs 3.2 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/) sprint and maxes out at 196 mph (315 km/h). With a lower weight and other enhancements, the GT R Black Series will be quite a performer, even if it sticks to its four-door sibling’s output.

    The GT R has 577 horsepower, so it would be a big jump, but if it’s gonna be a black series, I’d definitely say at least 700 horsepower

    1 yr earlier I made the decision to give up my previous job and I am so joyful at this time…. I started out doing work via the internet, for an organization I located over the internet, for just a few hr each day, and I earn much more than I did on my office workplace job… My pay-check for past thirty days was $9k… The best thing relating to this is the extra free moments I managed to get for my children…and that the only requirement for this job is simple typing and also having access to internet… I am also capable to put in quality time with my close relatives or buddies and also take care of my children as well as going on holiday vacation with them very frequently. Don’t avoid this opportunity and try to take action quick. Take a look, what it’s about… WORTH48.COM
