2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R Teased

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R TeasedAMG has shed nearly 200 pounds from the GT by using lightweight materials such as carbon fiber, and by removing excess weight inside and out. The teaser image that shows the cabin reveals precious little, but it’s expected to be a lot more basic than the standard GT’s.

Other highlight exterior features of the Mercedes-AMG GT R come in the form of an aggressive rear wing made from carbon fiber, roof and door mirrors made from the same material, beefier wheel arches, ventilated hood, center exhaust system, W194 300 SL-inspired front grille with vertical slats, and massive air intakes on the sides of the bumper.

We expect the production version to get bigger wheels, tyres and uprated brakes as standard, along with stiffer springs and revised steering. There will likely also be weight-saving measures including the carbon-fibre roof seen here, dropping the weight by anything up to 100kg.

Note, the GT R won’t be the most extreme model in Mercedes-AMG’s GT lineup. The tuner eventually plans to launch a GT Black Series. We’ve also heard that a convertible is coming down the line.

The 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed will run from June 23-26 on the grounds of Goodwood House in the United Kingdom. For more on the event, head to our dedicated hub.
