MERCEDES-AMG’S HAS UNLEASHED ITS BRAND NEW PORSCHE 911 KILLER (VIDEO).
The latest weapon in Mercedes' arsenal takes what it's learned from the road-going GT and GT-S coupes and race-ready GT3 and puts it all together to give us one of the finest road going beast to ever come out of germany.
The hand-built 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 powering the GT-R sits in same mid-front position as the rest of the GT lineup, but churns out 74 hp more than the current top-performing GT-S. This bump brings the GT-R's total output to 577 hp. The two turbos spool to a maximum speed of 186,000 revolutions per minute and stop building boost at 19.6 psi.
That air is then rushed through liquid-to-air intercoolers before it’s stuffed into the engine giving you the ability to launch yourself from stand still to 100km/h in about 3 seconds.
