Almost exactly a month's time, Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its new GT4 race car. Now, it seems, as a very hot street version would follow. At first glance, this toxic green prototype may look like a "normal" AMG GT R, one sees, however, a little closer, you will notice some interesting modifications.
So a couple of surround cable depend, for example, from the passenger door. In addition, the complete rear lid is covered with the wrapping foil. Yet clearly there is a floor below: that's Right, the center exhaust slot of the GT-R is missing here completely. The pipes move a bit to the outside, between the fins of the diffuser. To form "racing cars quite by chance" the same Setup as with the new GT4.
Compared to the GT R is the new Hardcore is likely to be set on the flagship, even on a diet. A polycarbonate rear window is just one of several weight-saving measures. And even if we see here is mostly a GT-R driving around, expect for the possible GT4/Black Series with a modified body kit, more aggressive and more aerodynamic.
Pictures of the interior are scarce. However, it is clearly seen that AMG has installed in this prototype a roll cage. Nothing, however, is likely to change when you drive. The well-known 4.0-Liter Biturbo V8 seems to be set. In the AMG GT R it makes 585 HP and 700 Newton meters. More Power would not necessarily necessary, but it is quite doable. AMGs eight of the makes in the E - and S-class up to 612 HP and 900 Newton meters. Presumably, the focus will be rather on the reduction of the mass, after all, the GT-R weighs in the best case, a whopping 1.655 Kilo. With a series version of the AMG GT4/Black Series is probably to be expected in the course of the year 2018. The price of 165.410 Euro, you must currently have for the AMG GT R fork, is likely to be easily exceeded.(sw)
