2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro Production Begins And That Makes Us Smile

The Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro collection of cars was revealed at last fall’s L.A. Auto Show.


This is brilliance at work. The new 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro will be equipped with AMG carbon ceramic brakes, adjustable front and rear torsion bars, a new carbon fibre front splitter and rear apron, among other things. About the coil-over suspension, it is now fully adjustable where spring preload length along with damper compression and rebound can all be preset.

All performance car fans are excited sure, but we get to drive it next week. We don’t mean to boast – it’s a tough job so we’ll do it for you. What we like perhaps the most about the Pro is that it doesn’t gain more power, it receives the ability to better exploit the ample available power.

While the GT R Pro is the jewel of the collection, the AMG GT, AMG GT C and AMG GT Roadster have also been given a once-over. Mercedes-AMG also introduced a new AMG GT R Roadster in Geneva last month. As a reminder, all these cars feature a bi-turbo 4.0-litre V8 that produces 550-horsepower (GT C) or 577-horsepower (GT R), an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission on the rear axle. Altogether, these cars reach 100 km/h in well under 4 seconds.

Before we head out in the Mercedes-AMG GT cars, we will be spending time behind the wheel of the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA. Check back with us for a full review on the latest 4-door coupé from Mercedes.
