The point of the Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro is quite simple. It was designed to go around corners faster than the regular GT R, despite not having any extra power.
However, if you like your track-focused supercars to possess a bit more visual flair, then maybe you’ll want to ring up Carlex Design and ask for the so-called Tattoo Edition model, which features a heavily customized interior and a tattoo-liveried body.
What exactly is going on in there?
The cabin is adorned in various motifs, from the lower dashboard to the sports seats, door panels and center console. The steering wheel meanwhile is covered in Alcantara (much like the headliner and various other parts), while the entire cabin wears yellow as contrast stitching.
This being the GT R Pro version, it also comes with a fully digital 12.3-inch gauge cluster, working alongside the 10.25-inch infotainment display above the center console. More importantly though, there’s a new AMG DYNAMICS driving mode which optimizes the transverse dynamics for increased lateral acceleration, improved traction and load change reactions.
Power meanwhile comes from the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that feeds the regular AMG GT R its 577 HP (585 PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. But since this is a more capable track car, it managed to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife nearly six seconds faster than its lesser doppelganger.
Overall, there’s something a little sinister about this particular GT R Pro and its bespoke livery, which we suspect was the point all along. At least it’s a good match for Halloween, right?
