Aside from debuting updated takes of its GT Coupe and Roadster models, Mercedes-AMG also unveiled its new AMG GT R Pro model at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Building on the top-class racing technology and spectacular design found on the GT3 and GT4 track vehicles, the Pro model features enhanced suspension, an increased powertrain and a new aggressive aero kit.

Under the hood of the AMG GT R Pro we find a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, reworked to generate 577-hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. With all that power, the car can go from 0-to-60 in 3.5 seconds flat, and reach top speeds of 198 mph.

To maintain handling, the AMG GT R Pro receives mechanically adjustable coil-over suspension, a carbon fiber torsion bar, a rear stiffening structure, and ceramic composite brakes. A lightweight carbon fiber aero package is also included, and can be seen in the splitter at the front, and with the large rear spoiler at the read — all helping to manage airflow when stepping on the gas. If the performance upgrades didn’t already give away the track-focused design, the matte gray paint job and green racing stripes will, as both are directly ported from Mercedes-AMG’s race efforts.

Take a look at the new Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro unveiled at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show above.
