Limited-edition Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro revealed

Limited-edition Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro revealed”

Also new in the cabin is the steering wheel design which features a motorsport-inspired flat bottom and a heavily contoured rim for ideal grip. This allows influencing the body dive and roll as the well as the traction of the AMG GT R PRO even more selectively. Now standard is a 10.3-inch central screen and a configurable 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, the former of which features AMG's Track Pace telemetry app, which uses Global Positioning System and sensors to record lap times and other data while on a track.

The updated Mercedes-AMG GT and a new GT R Pro variant have been unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles motor show.

The range has also pilfered the GT 4-Door's steering wheel, along with the fancy TFT buttons on the wheel and the centre console to change things like the ESP settings and the chassis modes.

Apart from the updated AMG GT line up, Mercedes-AMG also introduced the limited edition AMG GT R PRO, a model they teased a few days prior to its debut.

The carbon-fiber shear panel in the underbody of the rear end also contributes to the high handling precision.

The changes constitute a mid-cycle update for AMG's standalone sports auto which first arrived as a 2016 model.

All iterations get styling updates created to give the two-door GT a closer resemblance to the upcoming four-door GT, with particular emphasis placed on the lighting elements, rear bumper, and wheels.

Completing the updated interior is the new 10.25-inch infotainment display that sits on top of the air-conditioning vents.

The GT gets Mercedes' AMG Dynamic Select system, with Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, Race and Individual driving modes. Look for the updated AMG GT family to hit dealerships in the coming months.

Interestingly, AMG has revealed that the GT R Pro has clocked a 7:04.632 time at the Nurburgring, which makes it 6.3 seconds quicker than the GT R - but eight seconds slower than the 911 GT3 RS.

The front axle is fitted with an adjustable torsion bar made of lightweight carbon fibre. The AMG GT R is already fitted with Uniball spherical bearings at the lower wishbones of the rear axle. The sports vehicle now features the same 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch multimedia display on the centre console, as well as the same selection of TFT buttons on the transmission tunnel to adjust everything from the ESP settings to the rear spoiler position.

Despite the new kit, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT continues on with the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 as before.

In addition to a host of carbon-fiber components, weight is saved by the standard-fit ceramic high-performance compound braking system exclusively with black painted brake calipers as well as by the AMG bucket seats made of clear-coated carbon fiber (again not for USA, Canada and China).

"The AMG GT embodies the core of our brand, Driving Performance, in a unique way", he said.
