Mercedes Details 2020 AMG GT R Pro Along With Updated Range

Mercedes is currently presenting the updated 2020MY version of the AMG GT to the press, with the new AMG GT R Pro understandably getting all the attention.

It’s the only new member of the AMG GT family but also the new flagship; the new AMG GT R Pro may not receive a power bump over the 577hp ‘normal’ GTR but it does get some juicy upgrades to the chassis and aero, making it around seven seconds faster around the Nurburgring than its sibling.

These upgrades include a completely overhauled suspension -complete with manually adjusted coilovers, adjustable anti-roll bars and a rose-jointed rear suspension-, a new carbon fiver panel for its belly, lighter active engine and transmission mounts, a roll cage, as well as lightweight wheels and new carbon brakes.

The aero agenda now includes dive planes ahead of the front wheels, special vents on the wheels arches (like those you would find in a 911 GT3 RS), a Gurney flap and more, forcing the AMG GT R Pro with more pressure into the tarmac as speed increases.

As mentioned, the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine still produces 577hp (585PS) and 516lb-ft (700Nm) of torque, sending the AMG GTR Pro to 62mph (100km/h) in 3.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 198mph (318km/h).

The compehensive update also brought some changes over to the entire AMG GT lineup; every model now gets a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster, along with a 10.25-inch infotainment system as standard. Other interior updates include the latest AMG steering wheel, a set of display buttons on the center console.

Customers still have no less than four different AMG GT models to choose from, in Coupe and Roadster bodystyles. Base AMG GT models offer 469hp (476PS) and 464lb-ft (630Nm), while the AMG GT S version comes with 515hp (522PS) and 494lb-ft (670Nm). The AMG GT C is the most powerful of the lot this side of the GT R, with 549hp (557PS) and 501lb-ft (680Nm) of torque.

    I hope this stupid naming scheme will trickle down to other cars. “63 AMG S+ PRO” will make me giggle.
